I Shall Call You The Cobb Salad Sandwich

A few weeks ago, Jon and I visited Calhoun Street Soups, Salads, & Spirits for the first time. We were impressed with the decor- it is cozy and has that sought after neighborhood bar feel. It definitely seemed like a good place to hang out on a weekend afternoon.

The menu had some interesting items too: fried dill pickle spears, build-your-own hamburger on a pretzel bun, and the Egg Salad BLT, which is what I had and thoroughly enjoyed. Thinking back on that sandwich, I started dreaming about ways in which I’d approve it, and voila, the Cobb Salad Sandwich was born: Egg salad, lettuce, tomato, bacon and avocado! Mmmmm.

I rarely use recipes when I prepare meals, so I will do my best to map out what you will need.

  • 6-8 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • mayo
  • blue cheese crumbles
  • Dijon mustard
  • oregano
  • cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Avocado
  • Bacon
  • lettuce
  • tomato
Mix together first 8 ingredients to taste- I prefer real mayo over Miracle Whip, but it depends on what you like. I use the cayenne pepper very liberally because I like some kick in each bite. Once the egg salad is mixed, assemble sandwich on your favorite bread. We used Light Rye. Serve it up with a pickle spear and some cottage cheese with homegrown chives.
