Egg Salad & Caramelized Onion Sandwiches

Updated: Oct 23, 2019

There's nothing plain about this lunchtime favourite for Dai the Egg. Upgraded with fresh mayo, buttery lettuce, and slow-cooked sweet onions. What more do you want? It's absolutely smashing...⁠⠀



1/4 c. olive oil⁠⠀

4 medium sweet onions⁠⠀

2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar⁠⠀

1 1/4 tsp. salt⁠⠀

1/2 tsp. Freshly ground pepper⁠⠀

12 slice country white bread⁠⠀

12 large hard-boiled eggs⁠⠀

2 celery ribs⁠⠀

1/2 medium yellow onion⁠⠀

3/4 c. The Ultimate Homemade Mayonnaise⁠⠀

1/2 head lettuce⁠⠀


⁠⠀ In a large skillet over medium-low heat, heat olive oil. Add sweet onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent, about 40 minutes. Increase heat to medium and cook, stirring, until onions begin to turn golden brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in vinegar, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are deep brown, about 10 more minutes. Transfer onions to a plate and set aside to cool.⁠⠀ Lightly toast bread. In a large bowl, combine chopped eggs, celery, yellow onion, mustard, and remaining salt. Add mayonnaise and gently stir to mix. Season with pepper to taste.⁠⠀ On each of 6 slices of bread, place a couple of lettuce leaves, then the egg salad and reserved caramelised onions, both divided evenly. Top each with one of the remaining bread slices, and cut each sandwich in half with a serrated knife. Serve immediately.⁠
