Curried Egg Salad Bagel

The first time I had a curried egg salad was 1996. I remember this because I had just bought a house down the street from a good bagel joint. One day I ordered an egg salad bagel and he had put curry in it. I loved it! I've been making curried egg salad ever since. This is an easy sandwich to make and is good anytime of the day...



Start with a dang good bagel. My favorite bagels come from Ray's Bagels. They're made by Just Bagels in Brooklyn. They're fantastic...












Toast the bagel...














I use Penzeys Spices - They're the best I've found and they're cheaper than what I get in the market... You can use a sweet or hot curry powder...
www.penzeys.com and tell them cookingmyway.com sent you!



Cut up a few hard boiled eggs. I'm not going to go through the process of making boiled eggs here because we'll get to that in another post.

Start with a teaspoon of the curry powder then go from there to get the taste you want.








Mix in a few tablespoons of mayo. You can make your own mayo for this (it would be really good I assure you), but I get mine from Kraft...














Wash and dry some nice lettuce. Put a few pieces on the bottom of the bagel.













Top with the egg salad...












The finished sandwich...
It's quite messy to eat so get a fork and a few napkins... It's well worth it though...

Bon Appetit...
