I love a good egg salad sandwich. It’s such a tasty way to add high quality protein to your day, as well as pile on tasty veggies, herbs and whole grains. Today, I am partnering with Sabra ™ Spreads – a new line of hummus sandwich spreads, and Brownberry® Bread to make a light, savory egg salad sammie. With 75% less fat than regular mayonnaise, this new line of hummus spreads are conveniently squeezable and easy to portion control! Plus, with no knife or spoon needed, it makes for easy sandwich making – just squeeze onto your bread or wrap and enjoy.
It’s simple to make this tasty sammie, check out my video: Sriracha Egg & Veggie Salad Sandwich
One of my time-saving tips is to boil a batch of hard boiled eggs at one time and enjoy all week. It’s super simple to boil eggs. It’s three-steps. Refrigerate the hard boiled eggs, if you are not using right away.
