Cobb Salad Sandwich
We dyed a lot of Easter eggs over the weekend with my sister and her two cute kiddos. We made a mess, but it was totally worth it. We sent some eggs home with my sister, but we still have a fridge full. I am going to make a lot of Avocado Egg Salad sandwiches.
Josh likes my Avocado Egg Salad, but he came up with a sandwich of his own-Cobb Salad Sandwich. It has all of same ingredients as a Cobb salad, but in sandwich form. This sandwich is mighty, messy, and a great recipe for using up some of those hard boiled eggs!
When Josh was getting out all of the ingredients for his sandwich, I asked him how he was going to fit them all in between two slices of bread. He said he could do it. I believed him, but I didn’t know how he was going to eat it. Josh has a big mouth, but not in size:)
Josh added the ingredients in layers. He started with a thin layer of mayo. Next, he added lettuce, turkey, tomatoes, egg slices, avocado, bacon, red onion, and finally blue cheese. Josh used turkey because it’s his favorite, but you can use chicken or leftover Easter ham if you’ve got it!
He topped the sandwich off with another slice of bread and smooshed the sandwich down. The sandwich really didn’t do any smooshing though. It was still as big as ever. He cut it in half and did a few mouth exercises to warm up. He opened wide and went in for the kill. He couldn’t talk for a few minutes, but he was Mmmming the entire time. He loved his sandwich.
Josh shared his sandwich with Caleb…don’t worry, he cut it up in little pieces for our little guy. Caleb loved the sandwich just as much as his daddy. The bacon and avocado were his favorite part. I am glad Caleb takes after both of us:)
Get your sandwich on and make a Cobb Salad Sandwich! Make sure you have a napkin nearby, it might get messy!
