Believe it or not...pre-packaged egg salad sandwiches. I can't seem to make good egg salad sandwiches. I use mayo, not too much, then add chopped celery, and some yellow mustard for color and taste. I feel as if I'm missing a key ingredient somehow, maybe BBQ'd potato chips to go with this sandwich.

Caslon, try a bit of sweet pickle relish in your next egg salad.

Ok. But egg salad needs something to counteract what it's composed of. Eggs and oil and more egg. I add some yellow mustard and celery pieces, but still not there yet. I don't want to go sweet, necessarily. Maybe add some dill weed?

What makes it up, for me, is being sure to have some BBQ potato chips on hand to go with my egg salad sandwich.

To get back on topic...a professionally made deli bought sandwich is better than any sandwich I can make, out of my fridge.
I'm ok with that.

Try adding a little curry powder or paprika. One of our favorite style potato salads has HB eggs, mayo, Marzetti's slaw dressing, yellow mustard, salad olives, S&P.

With the right bread, almost anything. There is a local bakery that does a booming business in sandwiches. They make their own baguettes, ciabattas, and artisan breads. Whatever goes in the middle is just an enhancement to the bread.

We don't have any aversion to carbs, as we're both pretty active. We try to keep the fats down, and dessert is only when we have dinner guests. Seems to be working.

An acidic ingredient that has some texture would counter the richness from the egg. I'd use minced dill pickle.

Egg and tomato go well together i.e. the tomato cuts the richness of the egg and provides a fresh taste.

I usually go with the old classic egg and olive.

I've said it before, and I apologize for repeating myself. when I was little I am sure there was a conspiracy between the school lunch ladies and my mom about who could Always introduce egg shell bits in my egg salad sandwiches. Gah. Solution I found was to place a layer of potato chips on the sandwich and then eat.

That said, I like to sometimes mix in thin sliced and diced radish, or jalapeno peppers or a spoon full of well drained Famous Dave's ( or other) pepper relish. Bbq flavored potato chips sounds like a new added treat to me.

Caramelized onions is a good addition to just about any sandwich, like grilled cheese.
