bacon on eggsalad


about 10 years ago i worked in an icecream shop/cafe. on our menu was an eggsalad sandwich with bacon. i'm not sure if i tried it there because i'm not a huuuge fan of bacon, but i made them for lunch yesterday. i mentioned it to my husband and he was all about it.

this isn't the first time i've made them since my icecream scooping days though. remember my post where i did some "catering" for my uncle's bistro. well, i did a baby shower for him also. anyways, i gave a few options. one being tea sandwiches. i got the idea from a martha stewart book(the same one that gave me the coconut ganache bites), but only because of pictures. i made three tea sandwiches that were not on her pages. one of them was the bacon and eggsalad on oatmeal bread. they were a huge hit! and just a tip i learned from the great martha...drape wet paper towels over the sandwiches until ready to serve. it worked like a fucking charm and in fact, reversed some staling(sp?) bread.
