~ dilly egg salad tea sandwiches ~

Pretty tea sandwiches, arranged just so on a tiered server or a pretty antique platter, are one of my favorite parts of a leisurely teatime. I just love all of the  textures, ingredients, breads and flavor combinations. Some of my favorites: Proper cucumber, carrot cheddar curry, flower radish with wasabi lemon mayonnaise, Paris garden, chicken salad on sweet quick bread, turkey with strawberries basil & brie, and this yummy recipe for the perfect egg salad. These little sammys are sweet and creamy with a little crunch from the pickle, and the fresh taste of dill and chives in every bite….

7 hard boiled eggs, chilled

1/4 cup real mayonnaise

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

1/4 cup fresh dill and chives, chopped fine

10 sweet pickle chips, chopped

1 Tablespoon sweet pickle juice

1 Tablespoon sugar

salt and pepper to taste

Happy TeaTime Tuesday! I’ll be back every Tuesday with more tea treats for you.

What is your favorite kind of tea sandwich?

    Sometimes, especially at wedding or baby showers, it is so neat to see the tasty little finger foods like this all arranged so pretty!

    And then when they taste as good as they look? Makes them even better!

    I love dill on deviled eggs – I can’t believe I’ve never thought to put it in egg salad sandwiches. Great idea – and beautiful too!

    Just tried this and its delicious! Well I changed a couple things, I didn’t have any sweet pickles, so I just used 1 dill pickle, and I didn’t have any chives so I used green onion. I never thought of adding dill or pickles before! Thanks for sharing, lunch will be great today! ~Donika <3

    Egg for sure. Always loved egg sandwiches; especially made with mayo, chopped green onions or shallots and black pepper. Like crust left on except if it is a tea party. Then will cut them off neatly.

      oh dear…I’m not quite sure, Chloe It sort of depends on how much egg salad you like on your sandwiches…I would guess at least 8 sandwiches… (and then you cut the whole sandwiches into quarters…so 32 small triangle sandwiches.) I hope that helps.

    HI! This looks yummy! I plan to make for a shower. Any reason I could not make the egg salad the night before and assemble in the morning?
