Oh an old fashioned Tea!! I'd love to come, and I have just the right outfit!
I get it now...ladies tea sandwiches are a lot different than manwiches.
You might want to consider egg salad puffs we discussed a few days ago.
I'll see if I can find the link for you.
Here's the link....they would be great with egg salad..
Chicken Puffs

Just sayin'...
Back in my hunting days... when we had "deer camp"... and everyone was responsible for bringing a main meal... and breakfasts and lunches had their own two-man team... egg salad sandwiches were on our "better not" list...

A judicious, as in really careful, use of a food processor would help a lot in chopping the hard boiled eggs. Actually you can add mayonnaise and whatever and end up with egg salad. I have done it with success, but all it took was a couple of pulses.

I usually use my mini chopper to chop up the eggs - I may have to drag out the big one for 30 sandwiches! Thank you ALL for your help, information and light-hearted chatter! And...if anyone wants to volunteer for the cucumber sandwiches.....haha Thanks again.

I'll do the cucumber sandwiches, when would you like to pick them up? As for the egg salad tea sandwiches I would be surprised if you needed more than 2 dozen eggs but you might cook just a couple of more just in case. If you don't need them they are always great in a salad.

Tip use a wire mess cake stand sitting on a big bowl and press your hard boiled eggs through it.
