I love whipping up this quick avocado egg salad sandwich when I have all the ingredients. Some of my other favorite healthy sandwiches are Egg Tomato and Scallion Sandwich, Breakfast BLT and Omelet Tortilla Breakfast Wrap.

Easiest tip to make a sandwich lighter is to make it open-faced. To make a lighter egg salad, I use half the yolks so I am still getting the health benefits from using some of the yolks, plus I add some mashed avocado which makes it creamy and full of healthy fats.

Alternatives:

  • If you’re not a fan of salmon or lox you can substitute for another protein, sliced tomatoes or leave it out.
  • You can make this with a classic egg salad.
  • If you are gluten free you can use gluten free bread.
  • You can even turn these into appetizer style bites by using crackers or cucumber slices in place of the bread.

This is great for breakfast or lunch. If you’re only making one serving, you can refrigerate the egg salad in an airtight container. Enjoy!
