Spicy Egg Sandwich For Grown-ups

Spicy Egg Sandwich For Grown-ups

This sandwich is great for picnics, hikes and hanami (cherry blossom viewing). If you get bored with the usual things, the spiciness makes this a great drinking appetizer too.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Boiled egg
1
Caesar salad dressing or mayonnaise
2 heaping teaspoons
Chili pepper powder
1 to 2 shakes
Dried parsley
To taste
Salt and pepper (Coarsely ground recommended)
To taste
Bread (of your choice)
If you want it to be spicier:
Tabasco
3, 4 drops or more !!

Steps

1. Mash up the egg finely with a fork. It's easier if you divide the whte and yolk beforehand. Add the Caesar salad dressing and mix well.
2. Add the Tabasco and chili pepper powder, and season with salt and pepper. Add some dried parsley for color. Sandwich between slices of bread of your choice.
3. I spread it on sliced baguette and crackers to make small hors d'Ĺ“uvres. If you add the chili pepper powder on top, it looks prettier.
4. If using a baguette, you'll need about 1/3 to 1/4 of one. If using sliced bread (12-slice loaf), there is enough egg salad for 4 slices.

Story Behind this Recipe

I like egg sandwiches, but I want to change it up sometimes... I don't like it to be dry, but I don't like adding tons of mayonnaise either. It's nearly hanami season too. I tried making the egg salad with Caesar salad dressing. I added some spiciness to make this for grown-ups.
