What’s Special About This Toast

Sometimes, only egg salad will satisfy a true southerner’s cravings. There’s just something about those creamy yolks mixed with mayo (ad) and dijon mustard that makes the world go round. That’s why this recipe for Egg Salad Toast is one of my favorite things.

My recipe for egg salad is a basic southern go-to, so there are no surprises here. But, what may surprise you is how good it tastes when asparagus comes along for the ride. The combination of creamy egg salad and savory asparagus is a delicious treat.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

This recipe was born out of necessity when going to the grocery store was NOT on my radar. Ever had one of those days? You know you need to go to the store, but there’s no way it’s gonna happen.

The only ingredients needed for this dish are thick seeded bread, egg salad made with Duke’s mayonnaise, and left over asparagus from last night’s dinner. You probably have everything you need in your refrigerator or cabinet right now.
