Classic Egg Salad

Hard boiled eggs, Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, white pepper, celery and mustard are all you need to make the tastiest Classic Egg Salad Sandwich! You will love this easy Egg Salad Recipe.

One of the most underrated sandwiches of all time is the Classic Egg Salad. Childhood memories for so many people, so why do we shun away from it now? I spent pretty much all of Dec/ Jan in England and I am happy to say that in England I can get my hands on an Egg Salad Sandwich quite easily. The pre-made sandwiches at Marks & Sparks so yummy!! I love a packet of crips with egg salad. It was my go to. Along with some shortbread. My recipe for Brown Butter Shortbread is a favorite.

Then come back to Ammmurica and no egg salad to be found.

A few weeks ago we hosted my sisters Bridal Shower. We made all kinds of sandwiches- coronation chicken, egg salad, tomato basil w/ mozz, turkey and cheddar, cucumber & cc, ham & cheddar, along with more delicious items on the spread. You know the one sandwich so many people came up to me about? Egg salad? “Oh, I just loved the egg salad, reminded me of my childhood beach memories” or “Did you make the egg salad? I loved it, you never see it anywhere!” They were all right it was a spectacular sandwich, hence why I am here today.

Egg salad its typically made with mayo but since I am constantly stuffing my face with chocolate chip cookies I try to make healthy subs when I can. In this case I used a combo of mayo and greek yogurt. Then I added in a little bit of yellow mustard, white pepper and celery. Of course you don’t need to add the celery I just enjoy the crunch. Sometimes I throw it in, sometimes I don’t. You decide.

I also like to let the mixture marinate in the fridge for a bit before I serve it. While Egg Salad is typically served between two pieces of bread, I also love it on top of some lettuce (arugula is my fave) with salad veggies. Or if you’re like me (incredibly impatient when it comes to food) you can just use a spoon and go to town.

Either way, I truly do think that Classic Egg Salad Sandwiches should be found more often, its just too yummy!

Homemade White Chocolate Golden Oreo Peanut Butter

Homemade White Chocolate Golden Oreo Peanut Butter…Woah that’s a mouthful of  name. But a tasty mouthful I might add. I definitely have had my fair share of mouthfuls of this fabulous peanut butter.

Homemade White Chocolate Golden Oreo Peanut Butter www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com

I go through phases with peanut butter. Sometimes I can’t get enough of the stuff but other times I can leave it! And lately I have not been able to get enough of it! Maybe it’s because of the posts on other blogs lately of homemade peanut butter like this one on Averie Cooks.

Anyways I decided it was time I experimented. At first I was going to make plain ol peanut butter but then I had this half opened package of Golden Oreo’s staring at me so I decided I would mix them in and while I was cleaning out the cupboard I found 1/2 open bag of white chocolate chips so I thew those in too.

The peanut butter goes  through stages in the food processor. At one point I held the food processor -I was scared it was going to break  when the peanut butter had turned into a huge ball. But it didn’t! Yay!

I made this peanut butter and put it away before I could taste it. I had other things to bake that day like this .  I was in the other room when my mom came in “Wow! That peanut butter is good!” So I then said “Ya, with white chocolate and Golden Oreo’s in it” and I literally did laugh out loud! She just dabbed her finger in so didn’t get the crunch of the cookie but sure got the sweetness of the white chocolate!!

I have enjoyed dipping Golden Oreo’s in the peanut butter, eating it by the spoonful and when I am feeling healthy dipping apples in it.

It was such a fun experience to make homemade peanut butter. I hope you give it a try, it really is simple (and noisy).

You will watch the peanuts go thru different stages but keep going until it’s creamy and smooth around 5 minutes of processing the peanuts.

Homemade White Chocolate Golden Oreo Peanut Butter


Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups honey roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 10 Golden Oreos crushed

Instructions

  1. In a food processor place peanuts. Process for 5 minutes or so. The peanuts will go through different stages but after about 5 minutes of processing they will become smooth and liquidy. At this point add the white chocolate chips. The heat from the peanuts processing for so long will ensure the chips are blended in. Scoop into a bowl and add crushed Golden Oreo’s. Store in an airtight container.
