Hey Girl! Yes you read the title correctly. I don’t know about you but sometimes I simply want a good old fashion “Hood Egg Salad Sandwich”. You know one like your grandma use to put together? If you had a granny like I had who was born in 1910 then you already know that she was the type of granny that could pull ingredients together and make you something delicious.
It’s all glam and glitter when I attend Foodie events for blogger or when I find myself in the kitchen whipping up a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner for my family but sometimes I get the urge to just go back to my childhood and savor in those memories of the days that my granny would whip up one of the delicious egg salad sandwiches that I have ever had in my life with minimum ingredients. I grew up in Savannah, GA so on some days when my granny had to head downtown to pick her medicine we would patiently wait at the bus stop for the number 29 Gwinnett Street bus that would take us downtown.I remember how my granny would pull out her small senior token and an additional $.75 cents for me to take the public transit down to Broughton Street.
Once we arrived to Broughton Street and hopped off the bus we would always make a pit stop during the days adventure to Tanners Restaurant and order me an egg salad or tuna sandwich with a large grape fountain drink. The Lord knows that their sandwiches was the next best thing next to my granny’s. Here’s an image of what you would see walking into Tanner’s unfortunately I wasn’t able to find any other images since they rebranded the name to Tanner’s Taste of Chicago.
So for the past few weeks I have been having this massive craving for an old fashion egg salad sandwich. No I don’t use any of the fancy ingredients that you may see on fellow bloggers pages. My recipe is simple: 2 Hard Boil Eggs, Mayo, Salt, Pepper and two slices of Deli Style Bread.
Grab your eggs once they are cool and run them under cool water then place them in a bowl and smash into pieces with a fork. Next add mayonnaise or sandwich spread to the smashed eggs mix and add the salt & pepper to your desired taste. Spread on your bread and eat! Yes! I used a paper plate LOL!
