Green Eggs and Sand(wich)- An Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich November 23, 2011

Jamie says: I was planning on throwing together a quick lunch that I wouldn’t blog, but when I came up with this idea in the kitchen, I couldn’t help but run to get my camera before chowing down.

I used avocados as a mayonnaise substitute in egg salad. Geniuses pick green! (Meet the Parents movie, anyone? K and I have watched it over a dozen times.)

I instantly thought of “green eggs and ham” and thought this could be a “green eggs and sand(wich)?” This could be really fun for St. Patty’s Day, too!

Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich

The avocado made an amazing substitute for mayonnaise because it was so creamy!

The eggs are green from avocado and green onion!
