  • RE: can you freeze the egg salad sandwiches
    My mom and I both used to freeze egg salad sandwiches. We would individually wrap the sandwiches and bag them before freezing. When we wanted any we would take as many as we wanted from the freezer, butter the outsides and grill them like grilled cheese sandwiches. By the time the outside was toasty looking the inside still had a bit of a chill. It was a nice combo.

    I wouldn't freeze them for anyone outside the family for 3 reasons.
    1) I don't think hard boiled eggs maintain their texture
    2) I don't think it is safe to defrost mayonnaise
    3) Wouldn't they be soggy?

    The next time you make egg salad freeze a couple sandwiches and see how they turn out, better to toss a couple than a whole batch, Judy

    The school system I work at freezes the egg salad every Friday. Not the sandwich part, just the egg salad part. They've been doing that for as long as I've worked there. They also freeze left over scrambled eggs, and oatmeal.
    The scrabled eggs and oatmeal they put in a steamer to thaw.

    I personally would cut the recipe down rather than freeze it. I would make mayonnaise based egg salad up fresh for my family and friends.
