Easter Egg Overload? Try aย 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 – a Cobb Salad Sandwich. It has all of theย same ingredients as a Cobb salad but in sandwich form!

Big, Messy and Delicious Salad Sandwich

When Josh was getting out all of the ingredients for his sandwich, there were a lot of items laid out. I asked him how he thought 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!ย  Josh has a big mouth, but not in size.:)

How to Make a Cobb Salad Sandwich

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 salad 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 newly-created Cobb salad sandwich.

Josh shared his salad 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!

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I love cobb salad so I am sure I would love this sandwich. It looks delicious. I wish I had all the stuff in the house to make it I would have it for lunch today. If you get a chance stop by my blog Recipe for Life and check out some of my family favorites at:

  2. YUMMY! This makes me so hungry….and it’s still early morning. This is when I wish we had one of those Willy Wonka TV’s that can transport food. Maybe someday… ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. 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! =)

  5. 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 ^^

  6. Wow… this has my husbands name ALL OVER IT… I’ll give him my blue cheese— looks delish~!

    P.S. I am so jealous Caleb eats so well.. our 3 year old has turned into having quite the ‘I don’t like that” appetite more frequently… xoxo.. I love reading about little pea and your recipe ideas ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Spring

  7. I was going to post a cobb salad thanks to the plethora of eggs I have in my fridge right now, but this sandwich is looking way better than a regular cobb salad! Incredible sandwich and genius idea you guys had!

  8. My friend just told me about your blog and also “Cooking With Mr. C.” on Facebook. (also a blog) I just “Liked” his Facebook page and came to your site. It looks terrific. I love when people share blogs with each other. Denise
