Simple, Tasty and Skinny, Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe
Perfect to make with leftover eggs...There are dozens of ways to make egg salad but this one is my favorite! I’ve made it skinny by using a combination of eggs and whites, light mayonnaise and adding lots of flavor with the addition of mustard, relish and yes, a pinch of curry powder. Don’t be scared off by the curry powder. It’s such a small amount but really enhances the flavor of the egg salad. I’m also using a very low calorie, high fiber sandwich thin and topping with tomato and spinach. The skinny on this delightful sandwich is 147 calories, 5 grams of fat and 4 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. Made with full fat ingredients has 407 calories and 22 grams of fat. This sandwich is so yummy and great to pack for a healthy lunch or even enjoy for breakfast!

- To cook eggs-In a small pot, add eggs and cover with water. Bring to a boil, turn down to simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Drain water and place eggs in a bowl of ice water for several minutes. When chilled, peel eggs.
- In a small bowl, using a cheese grater, shred 1 whole egg and 2 whites. Throw away the other 2 yolks or use them in another recipe. Stir in mayonnaise, relish, mustard, curry powder, salt and pepper to taste.
- Split open sandwich thins and spread inside of each piece with mustard. Divide the egg salad among 2 pieces. Top each with tomato, spinach and remaining sandwich thin.
