The Best Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches
  1. Boil eggs – I find the best way to make hard boiled eggs is to place them in a saucepan and fill with water until the eggs are covered with water; place on stove and bring water to boil; turn off stove and cover saucepan with good fitting lid; let eggs sit in water until it cools about 1 hour or so.
  2. Peel hard boiled eggs and chop in to small pieces and place in mixing bowl- I usually take the peeled egg and place it horizontally into an egg slicer and slice; then I lightly pinch the slices together and replace them vertically into the egg slicer. You end up with uniformly chopped eggs. Just dump them in the mixing bowl and do the same with the remaining eggs.
  3. Add mayo and mix well.
  4. Add salt, pepper, and dill. Mix very well to distribute spices evenly.
  5. Spread one side of each slice of bread with a thin layer of butter.
  6. Spread a small scoop of egg mixture on top of the buttered slice of bread.
  7. Top with a second slice buttered side down.
  8. Cut off crust with a sharp knife.
  9. Cut into 4 triangles or squares with knife or in to desired shapes using a cookie cutter.
  10. Cover with a damp cloth then wrap with plastic wrap, store in fridge until ready to serve.
