Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Appetizers and snacks
Pairing egg sandwiches with appetizers is an excellent way to complete the meal.
Potato chips are the go-to option for any sandwich, but why not shake things up with some blistered shishito peppers?
Or go with sweet potato wedges if you want to stick to the classics.
Air fryer zucchini chips
If you want a different kind of crunch with your egg salad sandwiches, you can’t go wrong with these zucchini chips!
They’re made in the air fryer and develop that extra crunchy texture you won’t get baking.
Plus, unlike your usual bagged chips, these are super healthy (there’s barely any oil involved!).
Psst… to achieve those paper-thin chips, use a mandoline.
Why we love this recipe: each serving only has 40 calories.
Want a cheesy bite with your egg salad sandwiches? Pair them up with classic mozzarella sticks!
These treats are readily available in your frozen food aisle, but making them from scratch is much better.
One of the most important tricks for the best homemade mozzarella sticks is to double-coat the cheese to ensure nothing leaks when you fry them.
Why we love this recipe: you can easily make a big batch of these and freeze them, so you’ll be ready when the cravings hit.
Spicy roasted sweet potato wedges
These roasted sweet potato wedges have delightfully crisp exteriors with irresistibly fluffy insides.
But what sets these wedges apart from your usual recipe is the addition of chili powder to the seasoning.
This gives your wedges a sweet and spicy flavor that goes nicely with your creamy egg salad sandwich.
Why we love this recipe: the oven does the cooking for you.
Baked avocado fries
There’s so much more to avocados than guacamole – have you ever tried them breaded and baked?
The breadcrumbs form a crispy coating around avocado slices, which gives you a satisfying contrast to their creamy texture.
Serve these avocado fries with your favorite dip…
Mines forever marinara sauce (or one of these tasty marinara sauce substitutes).
Why we love this recipe: it’s a tasty way to incorporate avocados into your meals.
These cauliflower tots are the perfect addition to your egg salad sandwich meal.
The recipe calls for grated cauliflower, so even your eagle-eyed picky eaters won’t be able to tell these tots are not made of the usual spuds.
Enjoy these tots with your favorite dip (mine’s marina, like I said above!) and egg salad sandwich for a nourishing meal.
Why we love this recipe: it’s healthy comfort food.
Blistered shishito peppers
These vibrant green peppers and egg salad sandwiches may not be a traditional combo, but don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
When charred, shishito peppers develop a lovely smokey flavor that goes superbly with your egg salad’s creaminess.
These peppers aren’t spicy, although there’s always a pod in every bunch that packs a fiery bite (I know it’s true because I’ve has the extra spicy one before!).
Why we love this recipe: these won’t last long when you serve them.
Beer-battered onion rings
Enjoy restaurant-quality onion rings in the comfort of your own kitchen with this recipe.
Instead of a breadcrumb coating, the onion rings are coated with beer batter, giving you golden, lightly crisp crusts.
You can enjoy them as a side dish or add them as a crispy element to your egg salad sandwich.
Why we love this recipe: it’s made with easily accessible ingredients.
Salads and sandwiches are a combo that never goes out of style.
Leafy salads are great, but a simple cucumber salad will give you that refreshingly crunchy bite to contrast your creamy egg sandwich.
You can also go with a pasta salad for a heartier meal.
Cucumber radish dill salad
This simple salad is my go-to side for egg salad sandwiches.
The combination of the crunchy veggies and their sweet-tart vinaigrette provides a tasty contrast to your sandwiches’ soft textures and creaminess.
Making this salad is a breeze, but you have to make time to draw all the water out from your cucumbers to avoid a watery salad.
Why we love this recipe: there’s zero cooking involved – just lots of chopping.
BLT pasta salad
This pasta salad has everything you love about BLT – the fresh lettuce, crispy bacon, and juicy tomatoes – with a couple more veggie additions for that nutritious boost.
But the true game changer is its creamy dressing.
It brings a vibrant, citrusy note to contrast your decadent egg salad sandwich, thanks to the combination of lemon and fresh herbs.
Why we love this recipe: it’s great for picnics and potlucks.
Apple cider vinegar coleslaw
I love creamy coleslaws as much as the next guy, but they can be heavy with all the mayo dressing.
That’s why I love this version – crunchy shredded cabbage and carrots are coated with apple cider vinegar, giving you a tangy bite with the faintest hint of sweetness.
You can enjoy this slaw on the side, but I prefer loading it inside the egg salad sandwich.
Why we love this recipe: it’s lighter and healthier than your traditional coleslaw recipes.
Waldorf salad with kale
Waldorf salad has a ton of variations, but this recipe has to be my favorite.
Adding kale makes this dish healthier, and its natural bitterness helps balance this salad’s sweet elements.
This version also features a lighter, tangy dressing made with Greek yogurt and mayo, making it an excellent accompaniment for egg salad sandwiches.
Why we love this recipe: it brings a festive flair to your meals.
Egg salad sandwiches are all carbs and proteins so a veggie side is a must if you want more vitamins and nutrients.
Roasted veggies are an excellent choice, but try a bowl of tomato soup if you’re craving for some comfort.
This quick kimchi brings some crunch and spice to your egg salad sandwiches.
Unlike your regular kimchi, this version doesn’t require fermentation, so you won’t need to wait days before you can enjoy it.
You can serve this alongside your sandwiches, But I like stuffing it inside so every bite is a mix of crunchy, tender textures and spicy, tangy flavors.
Why we love this recipe: it provides substitutions for ingredients that may be difficult to find.
Roasted red pepper and tomato soup
Soups and sandwiches are a classic combo, so it’s a no-brainer to pair egg salad sandwiches with this tomato soup.
This version is my absolute favourite and uses slow-roasted tomatoes and jarred roasted red peppers, giving this soup a subtle smokey and acidic note that pairs well with your creamy egg salad sandwiches.
Pssst… if you have time, strain your soup before adding cream to achieve that silky texture.
Why we love this recipe: it transforms simple ingredients into a comforting dish.
Mexican street corn
Bring a delicious Mexican twist to your egg sandwiches with a serving of Mexican street corn!
The corn’s natural sweetness, combined with the salty cheese, creamy mayo, and smoky chile is pure heaven in a bite.
Boiling is the easiest method to cook the corn, but when the weather is warm, I like to fire up the grill to get that extra layer of smokiness – it’s worth it!
Why we love this recipe: it’s authentic.
Roasted peppers and onions
These roasted peppers and onions are an easy way to bulk up your egg salad sandwiches.
The high heat draws out the bell peppers and onions’ natural sweetness, making them oh-so-tasty even with just minimal seasoning
Serve them on the side or stuff them in your sandwich for an added nourishing boost!
Pssst… they’ll also add a pop of color to your dish.
Why we love this recipe: it involves no hands-on cooking time.
