322.egg avocado mayonnaise sandwich

your protein boost

Sandwiches are such versatile meals, be it as a light lunch, a quick snack, to go along with some soup or salad or for lunch boxes and picnics. The variety of breads makes sandwich making even more fun. The Ennsvalley breads sold at Nakumatt are not bad at all. Buy slices, buns or french loaves. Sandwiches are made quite often at our home for dinner. Egg and avocado combined is an amazing taste and very refreshing. Today I am going share a recipe using avocado mayonnaise. I didn't bother to make mayonnaise at home as I have a huge jar of ready made mayonnaise sitting in the fridge. To mask the vinegary taste I added avocado to it and hey presto I got a sandwich which hubby dear loved. Whenever I am in London, I tend to use a lot of watercress in salads and sandwiches.



EGG AVOCADO MAYONNAISE SANDWICH
For 2 as a meal or 4 as a snack

2 or 4 buns or a french loaf
3 boiled eggs
3 to 4 tsp butter
½ cup finely chopped lettuce

For the avocado mayonnaise:
3 tbsp avocado puree
1 tbsp mayonnaise 
¼ tsp garlic paste
1 tsp pepper
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander or watercress

  1. Prepare the mayonnaise first. Mix all the ingredients well in a small bowl.
  2. Shell the eggs and chop it up finely.
  3. Mix the eggs and mayonnaise.
  4. Cut the buns or french loaf into half, horizontally. Butter the halves and toast it on a pan or under the grill (broiler).
  5. Place the chopped lettuce on one half of the bread. 
  6. Top it up with the egg mayonnaise mixture.
  7. Cover with the other half of the bread and serve with your favourite salad or soup.
Tips:
  • Tastes equally good on untoasted bread. To carry it for lunches or picnics, just pack the egg mayonnaise mixture in a separate container. When required, just top the buttered bread with lettuce and egg mixture.
  • Use any bread that you prefer, slices, panini, ciabatta etc.
  • To test for freshness of eggs, place an egg in a glassful or mugful of water. If it sinks to the bottom, the egg is good and if it floats the egg is bad.
  • Adjust salt according to your taste.
  • Boil the eggs according to your preference.
