Egg Salad on Ciabatta

Pin It Now!
We had a fun and an enjoyable thanksgiving weekend. A couple of days away from the  routine was just what we needed. So I took the time to lay back and do some my kind of R&R (rest and relaxation). And that included hanging out in some gorgeous weather, spending time with family and cooking some delicious meals.And BTW delicious does not have to be time-consuming.  Like this quick egg salad recipe on this blog.


On another note :- How do you boil your eggs. I keep the eggs and the water in a pan and get them to a boil. Then cover and let them rest for at least 10min. Add water to cool them and then peel. Perfectly cooked eggs every time.
The rest of the recipe calls for some basic pantry ingredients. 


Here it goes :-
Egg Salad on Ciabatta
(Inspired from this recipe on One Hot Stove)

Ingredients

1/2 onion finely chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tsp oil
pinch of turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
1 tsp of your favorite garam masala
4 Boiled eggs
  • In a bowl combine add the onion,tomatoes,ginger-garlic paste and oil. Cover with a plastic wrap and microwave for 1 min or till the onion is translucent.
  • To this add the spices - tumeric,salt,chilli powder and garam masala.
  • Meanwhile chop the eggs. I used 2 full eggs plus 2 egg whites. Add them to the above mixture.
  • Finally add 2 tbsp mayonaise, 1 tsp mustard and mix. Taste and adjust seasoning. Garnish with cilantro to serve.

I toasted some Ciabatta and filled them with the salad. Totally delicious !!! Be sure to use the best of the bread you can find. We love the ciabatta from Panera Bread Bakery. Nothing can beat this $1.99 bread.  You can use any french bread you like. 


If the eggs are ready the total meal will be ready in less than 15min. Faster and way tastier than any take-out.

Very nice! I like how you can actually see the pieces, it's not all mashed up.
