Hummus Egg Salad Sandwiches

So I love egg salad sandwiches, but I don’t care for mayonnaise all that much. I have to have it very, very thin. I have always wanted to substitute, but everything I have tried hasn’t worked (never use plain Greek yogurt, it is just gross).

But one day I was looking at my fridge, and seeing all the hardboiled eggs I had I decided to make Egg and Spinach Hummus ToastBUT then I had an idea!

If hardboiled eggs go great with hummus, then could I substitute mayonnaise with hummus in an egg salad sandwich?

Hmm…

So I googled it to see if it was a bad idea, or if it had been done before, and found this recipe from Allrecipes

Ingredients:

  • 2 Slices of Bread
  • 3 Tablespoons of Hummus
  • 3 Hardboiled Eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions:

  1. Toast the bread to your desired taste.
  2. Dice or chop the hardboiled eggs in the manner you like.
  3. Add hummus and mix together.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Place the egg-hummus mixture on the slices of bread.
  6. Eat and enjoy.

Thoughts After Eating:

I thought this was really good. It was a great alternative to the mayonnaise and I love hummus.
