Grown Up Egg Salad Sandwich

Introduction

Egg Salad has been reworked in this sandwich to lose the mayo, reduce the fat, and increase the protein and whole grains. Call it a grown up Egg Salad Sandwich perhaps?

Ingredients

    4 large hard cooked eggs

    1 1/2 TB fat free ricotta cheese

    1 1/2 TB plain 0% Greek yogurt

    1 tsp dijon mustard

    1 tsp finely chopped green onion (green parts only)

    salt and pepper

    yellow mustard to taste

    1 cup watercress, thick stems removed

    4 slices whole grain bread (favorite is Great Harvest bread - can't get enough of it! I think it was their 9 Grain bread I used today)

Directions

1. While eggs are cooking, combine ricotta, yogurt, dijon, green onion & 1/4 tsp salt in a bowl and season with salt.
2. Peel eggs, cut in half and remove yolks. Crumble yolks into bowl. Finely chop egg whites and add to bowl.
3. Gently stir to combine.
4. Toast your bread in a toaster or oven. I sprayed mine lightly with cooking spray and 'toasted' in the oven at 350 for 4 minutes each side.
5. Spread egg salad evenly on two pieces of bread. I then squirted a little yellow mustard on each sandwich because we like the tangy-ness of it, you could certainly leave out this addition.
6. Arrange watercress on top of egg salad, dividing evenly. Top with other piece of bread, press down lightly, cut and serve.

  • dont think there is anything reduced in this recipe...
    sodium is high, and you may have gotten rid of the mayo... but you added a lot of other things and calories to take its place... good ole fashioned egg salad better. sorry - 1/29/11

    Did you try it? the flavors are delicious! Mayo has no health benefits, whereas the greek yogurt is both all natural and provides calcium and added protein and the ricotta is another good source of calcium and omega-3s, as well as vitamin A, riboflavin and vitamin b12. healthy!
