I feel like I start every post these days with “sorry it’s been so long, I’ve been sooo busy.” So I wont say it again. Suffice it to say that I just dropped in to give off some Drunk Squash love and it’s criminal the way I’ve been treating this blog lately.
But enough of that, onward!
I’ve been enjoying some belated heat here in my lovely East Bay city, and in honor of those sweet summer afternoons I wanted to share a sweet little sandwich tip.
Last month I saw a recipe for Curried Egg Salad on Baker by Nature and was immediately excited in the belly. And in the tastebuds, too. I was just really excited. See, I’m definitely a fan of egg salad sandwiches. I know they’re not healthy (soo much mayo) and not usually fancy, but they are still just so comforting and tasty. They were my special pals when I was a fourteen year old cutting meat out of her diet and trying to convince my parents that I’ll be okay without it. Yeah, that wasn’t the best way to prove that I could be a healthy, well-balanced vegetarian, but at least I had something to order off of the lunch menu. And even now that I’m a pretty staunch vegetarian sandwich orderer, I still find myself looking longingly at the good old egg salad sandwich.
So when I saw this recipe for CURRIED egg salad, I was immediately obsessed with the idea of making it for myself. I didn’t have all of the ingredients (namely celery salt, Tabasco, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, mango chutney, celery, or scallions), but I definitely made do with what I had. I realize that I just named over half of the recipe as “something I didn’t have,” so I’m going to admit that my own version was a loose interpretation that made do with spicy yellow mustard, regular salt, and Sriracha sauce. Yet I still had the best egg salad sandwich I’ve ever had. So one can only imagine what sorts of culinary ecstasy comes along with ALL of the ingredients.
If you’re in any way a curry fan, I implore you to try adding it to your next egg salad sandwich. Better yet, follow this recipe directly and let me know what I missed out on!
