Curried Egg Salad Open-Face Sandwiches

Recipes in this PostJar of Cross and Blackwell Major Grey's Chutney

I have a very good friend who said to me once, “Does everything with you have to be gourmet?” and I said, nonplussed, “Yes!”. Why do you have to go to a restaurant when you can make gourmet food at home, for a fraction of the cost! I was reminded to this today when I started to make egg salad sandwiches for lunch, and decided to make this a Curried Egg Salad Sandwich.

Probably, one of the reasons I can do this is because I have a good pantry, a good spice rack, and I’m not afraid to try new foods. That means I usually have good curry powder in the spice rack, and Major Grey’s chutney in the refrigerator. I have to watch the chutney, though, because Spane likes to eat it by the spoonful, right out of the jar.

Recipe: Curried Egg Salad Open-Face Sandwiches


  • 4 whole eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Madras curry
  • 2 tablespoon good mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions
  • 6 small slices sour dough bread
  • 2 tablespoons Major Grey chutney


  1. Put the eggs in cold water and set on the stove. High on high and let them boil 4 minutes, then turn the heat off. Come back in 20 minutes,and the eggs will be done, without getting that ugly green stuff.
  2. Shell the eggs and put them into a mixing bowl. Use a potato masher to mash them pretty small.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, curry powder and scallions, and mix them all together.
  4. Spread about a teaspoon of chutney on each slice of bread.
  5. Divide the egg salad on top of each slice of bread.


You could add raisins, coconut and finely chopped apples if you wanted.
