Egg salad is a classic lunchtime sandwich, and slider-sized versions are perfect for savory vegetarian hors d’oeuvres. Typically egg salad is made from chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, onion and celery, although ingredients like bacon, bell peppers or pickles can be used for switching up the flavor. For a more sophisticated upgrade, we love improvising with creamy avocado, roasted corn or anchovies. Or, for a lighter take, try Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, and serve on seeded bread, toasted brioche or Pullman bread. Find these recipes and more in our guide to egg salad sandwiches.
Buttermilk makes this quick bread nicely moist, while sunflower and pumpkin seeds give it crunch. It’s a great base for the egg salad but also terrific spread with good salty butter. Slideshow: More Egg Salad Recipes
