Two Peas and Their Pod

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!


Cobb Salad Sandwich

Yield: Serves 2

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

All of the same ingredients as a Cobb salad, but in sandwich form. This is one mighty sandwich!


4 slices bread (Josh used sourdough)
2 tablespoons mayonaise
2 Romaine lettuce leaves
4 slices deli turkey
1 large tomato, sliced
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1 avocado, pitted and sliced
4 slices cooked bacon
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
Salt and black pepper, to taste


1. Spread mayonnaise evenly over bread slices. Cover 2 bread slices with lettuce, turkey, tomato, egg, avocado, bacon, red onion, and blue cheese-dividing the ingredients evenly between both sandwiches. Season with salt and pepper. Top with remaining bread slices. Cut in half. Skewer each half with a toothpick to hold the sandwich together...or just start eating!

    Could also call it a Dagwood sandwich?

  24. naomi — April 1, 2013 @ 11:57 am

    I have to try this!!!

  25. That looks like a seriously delicious salad sandwich! And I have to relate to Josh… usually my sandwiches are fit for a giant. My FIL always tells me I have “big eyes, little tummy” Haha, but I cant help it, I love too many ingredients 😉

  26. Gaby — April 1, 2013 @ 12:32 pm

    I am beyond into this sammy! What a great creation!

  27. Lauren @momhomeguide — April 1, 2013 @ 12:48 pm

    What a great idea! We have so many eggs and a lot of ham leftover for Easter, so I love this recipe!

  28. Barbara @ Barbara Bakes — April 1, 2013 @ 12:48 pm

    What a great sandwich idea.

  29. Abby — April 1, 2013 @ 1:24 pm

    This looks so delicious! I’ll have to give it a try!! :)

  30. Laurie A. — April 1, 2013 @ 1:58 pm

    That looks scrunptious! I would suggest that if you don’t have bleu cheese crumbles on hand, you could skip a couple of ingredients and just spread the bread with bleu cheese dressing. I always have that on hand in the fridge so that could sub for the mayo and cheese crumbles! Otherwise, yum! I think I will be taking all the ingredients to work this week and my classroom assistants and I will be making these for our lunches! =)

  31. marcie@flavorthemoments — April 1, 2013 @ 2:28 pm

    Terrific sandwich! That’s a great way to utilize my leftover eggs, too.

  35. Dumbonie — April 1, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

    Yep, i’ve made some sandwich like that before, but my ingredients wasn’t as variety as Josh. I’m very excited with avocado and hard boiled eggs. I’ll try it at the nearest time. Thank you for sharing the recipe ^^

  36. Kathy — April 1, 2013 @ 4:31 pm

    Wow! That looks delicious! What a great idea for all those leftover eggs!

  37. I just had a cobb salad the other day and forgot how much I like it. This looks so yummy!!
