PIN Healthy Egg Salad Grilled Cheese Sandwich
You guys. I think I’ve been body snatched.
In fact, I’m not even sure who’s typing this right now, you may be reading the words of an alien.
I may be being SLIGHTLY (read: a lot, but what else is new) over-dramatic, but I am doing ALL THE THINGS that I promised myself I would never ever do.
It all began with these Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers.
I made a meatless burger. I liked it. I ate it again and again, and there may have been a few more agains. I was so anti veggie burgers before the massive amount of veggie burger consumption, that my identity slowly began to unravel. (again, a teeeeny bit dramatic)
And then there’s today. I’m completely and totally late…for National Grilled Cheese Day.
I’m that girl that is always “early or I’m late” and it drives the huberoni crazy. He’s more of “if I’m not late, I’m too early” kinda guy.\
You can image the fun we have when we have to go to events that start a certain times.
April 12 is actually grilled cheese day. But, guess who has two thumbs and waited till the very end of April to join the party? This girl.
Can we just call it “fashionably late” for the sake of I’m-not-sure-who-I-am-and-I-REALLY-don’t-want-to-be-an-alien-because-green-isn’t-my-color-so-I-need-my-abnormal-taylor-actions-justified? Great.
All talk of space creatures aside, I promise this healthy egg salad grilled cheese sandwich is worth the wait. You know what, I’m even going to go as far as to say that I held out on you on purpose, for the sake of suspense.
Even if you didn’t know this healthy egg salad recipe was coming, so there really was no suspense. Whatever. You understand me.
If you are a fan of healthy egg salad, you’ll totally be diggin’ this sammy. Can adding cheese to anything make it worse?
Is Egg Salad Healthy?
Typically egg salad is loaded with Mayo which makes it not considered “healthy.” You all know I’m all about everything in moderation so you can totally use Mayo if your heart desires! But, to make this a little bit “healthier” we are using Greek yogurt!
Plus it adds ALL THE PROTEIN to this healthy egg salad grilled cheese sandwich. You know how I feel about protein.
Best part about this healthy egg salad sandwich with CHEESE is that you can use your leftover Easter eggs to make it! I might have missed grilled cheese day, but you better believe I planned this recipe to go live right after Easter for a reason.
Best part about this the sequel? You can eat it for breakfast, since there are eggs. You can eat it for lunch, since it’s a sandwich. And You can eat it for dinner, because I said so. And…cheese.
So, whenever you’re reading this, you should also be eating it. Capeesh?
