Did you know Pee-Wee Herman’s favorite sandwich is an egg salad sandwich? Yup he proclaims it in one of the Pee-Wee Herman movies (I think Pee-Wee Herman’s Big Top Adventure) when he goes on a picnic date with his girlfriend. I have always despised Pee-Wee Herman. And because of this extreme dislike of Pee-Wee Herman (and his TV show and movies) I could not stand egg salad sandwiches. Yes even though I have NEVER had one! If Pee-Wee liked it, then I could NEVER like it. So in my whole twenty something years I avoided egg salad sandwiches at all costs. When I found out a local sandwich shop was known for their egg salad sandwiches I knew I could no longer eat there. Every time I saw a recipe for egg salad sandwiches I quickly turned the page.
I know… extreme. I mean I love chicken salad, and tuna salad, and deviled eggs… so why not egg salad. So I had a little chat with myself and told myself that I needed to grow up and try egg salad sandwiches. And you know what? I loved it! I took the flavors of my classic deviled eggs added a few more yummy things and ta-da had a yummy and quick sandwich suitable for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
So despite my dislike for Pee-Wee Herman and in honor of Easter I bring you my new favorite sandwich.
