Egg Salad Sandwich

This is a really simple sandwich to make, perfect for those days when you don’t feel like cooking a whole meal. On the day I prepared this sandwich I’d been working for several hours in the backyard and was tired, hot and hungry. Less than 15 minutes after walking into the house, I was eating the sandwich. It helps that I like to keep at least 2 hard-boiled eggs in the fridge at all times.

Ingredients: (Makes 2 sandwiches)
2 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/4 tsp dried dill
2 tbs mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
1 tbs finely chopped onion
4 slices of your favorite bread

Remove both hard-boiled eggs from their shells and put into a medium-sized bowl. Cut into quarters and mash with a fork. Add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix well. Let it rest about 10 minutes, so the flavors have time to blend.

Serve with your favorite sliced bread.
