Emeril’s Egg Salad Supreme is Truly a Serious Sandwich
I was chosen along with 20 other bloggers to participate in a cook-along of Emeril’s soon to be published cookbook, Kicked-Up Sandwiches. Over the next 3 weeks, we will each cook up some delicious looking sandwiches of our choice (at least twice a week). We were given the okay to cook and discuss whatever dishes we want, but only a few recipes were given the okay to publish in their entirety. Learn more about the new cookbook on the information page, and catch up with the other bloggers from the Morrow Cookbook authors on their blog, The Secret Ingredient Blog.
You wouldn’t think an egg salad sandwich would be classified as a serious sandwich, but Emeril has found a way to do just that. What did it take? I don’t know for sure. Maybe the hot Paprika or the minced shallots. The dry mustard bringing out the flavor of the egg yolks, or a combination of everything. Whatever it is, this is one serious sandwich.
Mise en Place
You can of course add things to this egg salad if you are used to it. Maybe you like carrots (huh?) – whatever, make it your own, but try this version without changing it first. I don’t think it needs much else.
- We are big about not using the whole egg unless we have to, so I nixed most of the yolks, and it was still a nice and creamy salad.
