Gourmet Curried Egg Sandwiches


I've always been a fan of curried egg.  I'll happily make a huge bowl of it and eat it for lunch.  Then my auntie Chia introduced our family to her Gourmet Curried Egg Sandwiches.  They are to die for and so moreish and satisfying.  The photo really doesn't do this sandwich justice but I took it first thing in the morning before rushing off to work. 

Jared loves them and I often make them for him to take for lunch at the office.  His co-workers have noticed how great they look so I've started sending Jared to work with 3 gourmet curried egg sandwiches.  One for himself, one for his boss and one for his co-worker and best friend, Richard.  I love feeding Richard because he always emails me through a review of what he's just tasted.  This is the curried egg sandwich review: 

Subject:  Lunch
OMG. It’s tough for something to actually taste better than you remember as well as better than it looks, but that nailed it. The subject title of lunch doesn’t encapsulate the culinary experience that is eating that sandwich. Happy for you to paraphrase that in the intro of your book. Remember it’s the execution of a dish and not the origin that’s important. Maybe the book could be called. “Nail that dish”.

5 hard boiled eggs
3 tablespoons keens mustard powder
1/2 cup greek yoghurt
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 cup dessicated coconut, lightly toasted
1 tablespoon spring onion sliced
salt and pepper
3/4 cup baby spinach leaves
Thick slice wholemeal bread

Lightly toast the coconut.  Boil the eggs, let them cool then mash them up in a bowl and add all the other ingredients.  You can add more or less of anything - do it to your preferred taste.  Serve on baby spinach in gourmet bread.
