Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches

Egg salad sandwiches are light and creamy and perfect for afternoon tea parties. They are simple to make and delicious. You can use the mixture on different breads like croissants, rye, whole grain wheat, or pumpernickel. Another way is to serve it as a lettuce wrap adding avocado, bacon, or even sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. A scope on lettuce or greens in a teacup is pretty for a lady’s lunch. It can even be served on crackers for a snack the way my husband likes it.

It really is perfect for an afternoon tea, lunch, brunch, light dinner, or afternoon snack. I like having eggs already prepared from Costco. If you don’t already have hard-boiled eggs on hand it takes little time to boil them.

Once the mixture is made it can be stored in an airtight container and placed in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
