Kid Friendly Egg Salad




Does your child come home from school saying
"Mom I'm Hungry!!!!!" ?
When you point them to the fruits or healthy section
of the fridge and pantry,
all of sudden they're not hungry anymore.
 
I am constantly experimenting on how to make my dishes 
appealing to my kids.
It's not easy!!!
 
I can't wait for the day when they say,
"I used to hate eating this, but now I love it!"
I think we all had that moment
when we excused ourselves from the table
with a mouthful of food heading to the bathroom
and discarding that disgusting food our Mom's forcibly made us eat.
And now as adults,
we call our Moms for the recipe of that dish.
 
Ahhh... childhood!!!
 
Here's something I learned from my Mom
that my siblings and I loved when I was a kid
and now my own children love to eat whether it's for a picnic
or an after school snack.
I find that the red onions that my Mom adds on the egg salad
is too strong for the childrens tastebuds.
I instead used chives.
Besides adding a splash of color,
it doesn't have the pungent taste of onions that the kids hate.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ingredients:
 
 
 
 
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
2 tbsp mayonaise
2 1/2 tbsp sweet pickle relish
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp sugar
freshly ground pepper
1 tsp chives
6 slices any choice of artisan bread
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 
 
 
 
Directions:
 
 
For the Egg Salad:
  • Mix eggs, mayonaise, relish, salt, pepper, sugar and chives in a large bowl.
  • Chill for at least an hour before serving.
 
For the Bread:
  • Drizzle Olive oil on both sides of the bread.
  • Grill both sides until light toasted.

 
 
 
 
 
Note:
 
 
For the adults tastebuds:
  • you can add chopped shallots
  • lay a piece of smoked salmon on the bread
  • layer with egg salad
  • And top it with alfafa sprouts.
Yes, you can substitute sugar with any sweetener.

    1. I am so glad you're boys loved it.
      My daughter who's a picky eater was hesitant at first and now this is her favorite.
      so I thought I'd share it with everyone.
