…for egg salad sandwiches:
Bring a pot of water to the boil, add the eggs to the boiling water & cook until hard for 8 – 9 minutes, then rinse with cold water & allow to cool. Finely chop the pickles & place in a mixing bowl. Peel the eggs, also chop finely & add to the mixing bowl.
Finally, add 2 heaped tablespoons of crème fraîche, ½ tablespoon of mustard & a good pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper & stir everything together well, then set aside for a moment.
Drizzle the bread with a little oil & then toast in a pan (alternatively panini grill or oven) until golden brown on both sides. Slice tomatoes. Wash and prepare the lettuce. Cut the chives into fine rolls.
Then top the egg salad sandwich, first put lettuce and tomato slices on a slice of toasted bread, next spread 2 heaped tablespoons of the egg salad mixture on top & finally garnish with some chopped chives & then “cover” with the second slice of bread. Bon appetit & have fun cooking!
