Egg Salad Bunny Sandwiches
Are you unsure about what to do with all those hard-boiled eggs? You can use those left over Easter eggs in this fun Egg Salad Bunny Sandwiches recipe. I had the idea in my mind for a while, but procrastinated because I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted to make the bunny’s face. This afternoon, I finally pulled out the egg salad ingredients, and all the small vegetables and fruit I had on hand.
- bread (around 20 slices)
- 1/2 cup mayo (I’m a Duke’s fan)
- 1 teaspoon of mustard
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup sweet pickles, diced
- 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and diced (7 are pictured, but I only used 6)
- veggies and fruits for facial features (grapes, dried cranberries, carrot chips, and manzanilla olives)
- bunny-shaped cookie cutter
Hard boil the eggs, peel, then dice. Place them in a medium-sized bowl.
Add mayo, salt, diced sweet pickles, and mustard. Stir everything together, and set aside. That’s your egg salad. How easy was that?
Press the bunny-shaped cookie cutter down into your bread slice and twist back and forth. This motion separates the excess bread from the cookie cutter. Gently pop the bunny-shaped bread out of the cookie cutter. Make 20 of these. This recipe makes 10 Egg Salad Bunny Sandwiches. Set the bread aside for now.
Experiment with your veggies and fruits to make eyes, a nose, a mouth, and whiskers. Set up an Egg Salad Bunny Sandwich assembly line as you make the sandwiches. I used sliced carrot chips for the whiskers, sliced green olives for the eyes, a triangular-shaped green grape for the nose, and dried cranberries for the mouth. I didn’t even bother to research how other people used veggies to make faces, because I wanted to create my own thing. On that note, as a blogger, I think it’s helpful to decide what you’re going to create before you go and see how everyone else made a certain thing. If you do use someone else’s tutorial, don’t forget to reference the original maker!
You’re all done! Wasn’t that a simple way to use those eggs? I hope you and your family have a great Easter. It’s almost here!
