Egg Salad BLT | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I really wish that my husband and I could eat lunch together. This would be a perfect lunch sandwich to sit down to during a break from work. Unfortunately, my husband works too far away (with a short lunch break) to be able to come home for lunch. So we settle on eating sandwiches for dinner from time to time.

When I saw this recipe in my Cooking Light magazine, I knew I wanted to try it. I love BLTs, I love egg salad, so you couldn’t go wrong combining them!! I actually followed this recipe pretty exact, except for using some sourdough we had in the cabinet that needed to be used and some green leaf lettuce instead of Boston. I loved the addition of the lemon rind – it added such a fresh flavor. They were great sandwiches, and made great leftovers for lunch the next day as well!!
