I find myself dipping into Sage’s share of boiled eggs once in a while for a quick snack, an idle time eat, to pimp up my salad or just dunk into a tomato onion gravy. Having a couple of boiled eggs on hand has always allowed me to be fed on days when K is travelling or I am feeling particularly slothful.
I had to come up with an easy kid friendly breakfast recipe for my newspaper column and decided I had to pay homage to one of my favourite ways of eating boiled eggs – egg salad.
There is nothing much to ‘making’ this breakfast roll. Unless boiling an egg and toasting bread counts as cooking in your books (which it sometimes does in mine ;P)
Egg Salad Roll (Makes 2 rolls)
Wholewheat bread roll 2
Boiled Eggs 2
Mayonnaise 2 tablespoons
Tomato Sauce 1 tablespoon
Cucumber ¼ chopped fine
Tomato ½ chopped fine
Coriander leaves a small bunch
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop the boiled eggs into medium pieces, toss with the chopped cucumber and tomato in a bowl.
Add the mayonnaise, tomato sauce, fresh coriander leaves and salt and pepper and gently mix.
Slice the rolls in two lengthwise, gently warm them on a tava. Place a few spoonfuls of the filling along the length of the roll.
Cover with the other half. Secure with a toothpick. Serve with some tomato sauce on the side.
*This mixture can also be used to stuff a paratha or roti like a frankie and served.

Finally. After ages of searching for a quick recipe that a non-cook like me can make, tadaaaa… 😀 Thankyou so much!
Stuff the egg salad in rotis or even bread slices and you are done!
Sounds soul comforting!! Cheers!
Amazing idea, considering we have boiled eggs always on hand, thanks to Atom’s stash 😀
P.S. What’s the black mark on Sage’s tongue?
Love seeing his cute face here 🙂
Yeah eggs are so convenient to have no! Those are birthmarks on his tongue 👅
and total convenience on the egss 😀
I heard that boiled eggs take many calories to digest and they are given in the Mayo Clinic’s diet
Such a great idea. I have some rolls that I just got. Will make it for the weekend.
