Pretty Party Sandwiches

Egg Party Sandwiches

Tuna Party Sandwiches

Party sandwiches are a healthy alternative to heavier party foods like nachos and grilled meats. In Montreal no one does them better than Snowdon Delicatessen where you can get a box of them for 20 bucks. If you can’t get to Montreal or are strapped for cash, give my recipe a try.   They take minutes to prepare and will tempt even the most boorish beer guzzling meat eater.

Here’s How You Do It

Difficulty Level: Easy
Prep and Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

5 Hardboiled Eggs – Peeled, Cooled, and Finely Chopped

2 Cans of Tuna in Water – Drained

4 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise or Jarred Salad Dressing, Divided

2 Teaspoons of Fresh finely chopped Dill, Parsley, or Basil, Divided – Use what you like

1 Rib/Stalk of Celery, peeled and finely chopped

1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon of Dijon Mustard

1 Shallot, finely chopped – If you can find shallots, which are small, more delicate relatives of onions, use a green onion instead

1 Loaf of White or Whole Wheat Bread

Salt and Pepper to taste

Equipment

2 Regular Bowls or Plastic Containers

2 Regular Spoons

1 Knife and Cutting Board

1 Large Serrated Knife

Measuring Spoons

1 Rolling Pin

In a bowl or plastic container mix the together the Eggs, 2 tablespoons of Mayonnaise, the Mustard, 1 Teaspoon of the Dill or Parsley, half the chopped celery, the chopped shallot, and some salt and pepper to taste.

Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together the Tuna, remaining Mayonnaise and Celery, the Lemon Juice, and the other teaspoon of Dill or Parsley.

You’re now ready to assemble your sandwiches.

Spread some of the egg mixture on a slice of bread and top with a slice of bread.

Repeat until you’re out of filling.

Roll your rolling pin lightly over the sandwiches to evenly distribute the filling and level them out. It will also keep the filling from spilling out when you cut them up.

Using your serrated knife cut the crusts off the sandwiches and then cut the sandwiches into 4s.

Do the same with the tuna mixture.

Arrange in a pretty pattern on a plate or pack up and stick in your cooler for a picnic!

Enjoy!
