Kicked Up Egg Salad; Emeril Serious Sandwich Post 3

I'm not a traditional kind of girl in any sense of the word. Especially when it comes to food. The crazier the better for me.  So I was happy to see that even a basic egg salad sandwich was kicked up a notch in Emeril's upcoming book Kicked Up Sandwiches.

The book is due to hit the shelves on Oct. 16th and trust me you're going to want to get a copy. There are over 100 sandwiches, several bread recipes and some cool condiment ideas. Twenty-one bloggers (myself included) are working with Emeril to spread the word about this book.

Want to win a copy of Kicked Up Sandwiches?  Here's all you have to do.  Leave a comment on this post tell me what your favorite sandwich is.  I will randomly pick a winner on Oct. 16th.

Did I mention the Egg Salad?

Egg Salad Supreme 
Makes 6 sandwiches, about 3 cups filling

12 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
¼ cup minced shallot
¼ cup chopped green onion or fresh parsley leaves
¼ cup minced celery
1/2 cup mayonnaise, homemade (see page 309) or store-bought
12 slices White Sandwich Bread (page 303)

1. Roughly chop the eggs and place them in a mixing bowl. Add the salt, mustard, paprika, shallot, green onion, celery, and mayonnaise. Stir with a rubber spatula or a spoon until very well blended. Transfer to a container, cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 4 days.

2. Spread 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the egg salad between 2 slices of bread. Repeat with the remaining salad and bread.
