Tomato Basil Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

This egg salad is a perfect lunch served on a delicious crusty baguette with a touch of basil!

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful week! 

Ours was pretty eventful! 

I started Zumba on Thursday night and boy, am I still sore today! 

It was such a fun and exciting workout though and I'm super excited to go back next week!

I also attended a local Young Living event last night! It was SO informative and interesting and makes me excited to continue on my oily journey! 

I posted a new recipe for Pan Fried Tilapia with Lemon Cream Sauce over at my new blog, Mama Loves Her Oils! 

The sauce is made with lemon essential oil and is amazing! Head over if you want to check out the recipe!

Today's post is one tasty sandwich! Who's a huge Trader Joe's fan like me?? 

In their bakery section they have these delicious Garlic Parmesan Baguette, and that was my inspiration for this sandwich! 

If you don't have access to Trader Joe's, any baguette or bread would work great!

I also love tomato basil everything, so why not combine those flavors into a simple egg salad sandwich? 

It turned out fantastic! 

The flavors were all delicious together, and the sandwich serve with some fruit or chips was a great, light lunch!

  1. This looks really good:) I love the parmasen baguette. What a nice addition to this sandwich,

  2. TJ's has some really great breads available. Love them. I also love this egg salad! Easter is always a great excuse to make egg salad...can't wait!

  3. I do have a Trader Joe's store nearby and will be looking for parmesan baguette. Egg salad never looked so good!

  4. We were just at Trader Joe's, it is a good 40 minutes away. Wish I had seen this delicious sandwich before we went. The bagette would have been in my basket.

  5. This is the best looking egg sandwich I have ever seen! I must try this!

  6. I do so love tomato basil everything as well, and putting this sandwich on that scrumptious baguette bread is genius! Looks delish!!

  7. It's been too long since I've enjoyed egg salad. Love the twist on a classic here!

  8. This is such a fresh & delicious twist on a classic egg salad. I have added basil and tomato before to a tuna salad recipe, but not to egg salad! :) I need to try this soon.
