Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise, plus extra, if you like, for spreading
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices whole grain bread, toasted
  • 1 avocado, halved, peeled, seeded and sliced lengthwise

Directions

Cook the eggs 10 minutes in a saucepan of simmering water to cover. Drain, cool under cold running water, and peel. Roughly mash the eggs in a bowl with the mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Spread 4 slices of toast with mayonnaise, if you like. Arrange about 1/4 of the avocado slices on each. Spread each with 1/4 of the egg salad and arrange watercress sprigs on top. Top each sandwich with another slice of toast and serve.

While the flavour was just ok, I found adding avocado just added soft texture onto another soft texture. There needed to be more of a contrast for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love the egg sandwich. Simple and delish! I don't have watercress, still it came out good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So Yummy! I decided to mash my avocado in with eggs and it turned out awesome! Next time I think I will half or even completely omit the mayo because the avocado provides a nice richness on it's own. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was delicious! In the past I haven't been the hugest fan of egg salad...but consider me a convert! I used raw spinach instead of the avocado. It was amazing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I never cared for Egg Salad much. I always made it for my husband and son. The lemon juice in this recipes has changed my mind and I am an Egg Salad Lover now!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was just o.k. I love Tyler's recipes and have all of his cookbooks, but the avocado being a soft texture, along with egg salad, again a soft texture, was not a great combination for me. I liked the addition of the lemon juice but I don't think I'll make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great variation on an egg salad sandwich. Love the watercress in the sandwich for a herby hints and the avocado for a smooth, creamy flare. Yum!!! It was a hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made a lot of egg salad in my day but never put lemon juice in it. WOW, what a huge difference that made. Wish I had known that trick a long time ago. Excellent! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have never before liked egg salad. I only tried this recipe in the hopes that my daughter would sample something new for school lunch. I was surprised that I actually enjoyed this. It's simple enough to make and the flavors are not wild (so my kids will eat it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
