'Tis the Season for a Picnic - Egg Salad Sandwich

One of the easiest sandwiches to make {that is if you can hard boil an egg properly} is a egg salad sandwich. Confession: I struggle with hard boiling eggs. You think it would be so easy, but somehow someway it just doesn't work out sometimes. Weird I know. says this is the "Best Ever Egg Salad Sandwich". I'll let you be the judge of that on your next picnic. For now, we'll just call it "Egg Salad Sandwich".

Egg Salad Sandwich

12 bacon slices
8 large hard boiled eggs, peeled, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped pimiento stuffed green olives
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
12 slices white sandwich bread, toasted
12 red leaf lettuce leaves

Saute bacon in heavy large skillet over medium heat until brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Cut bacon slices crosswise in half.

Combine chopped eggs, celery and olives in bowl. Mix with 1/4 cup mayonnaise and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

Place toast slices on work surface; spread lightly with remaining mayonnaise. Divide egg salad among 6 toast slices. Place 4 bacon pieces, then 2 lettuce leaves atop egg salad on each. Cover with remaining toast slices, mayonnaise side down. Cut sandwiches diagonally in half.
