Egg Salad Wraps

Sometimes a new spin on an old family favourite is just what's needed to add a bit of spark to the dish.  When it comes to sandwiches it is quite easy to turn them into wraps.  Wraps use flour tortilla shells to form the pocket style wrap.  Flour tortilla shells now come in a variety of flavours ranging from plain to pesto to sun dried tomatoes which really adds to the kinds of wraps you can make.

One of my husband's favourite sandwich fillings is egg salad so I did a little twist on this sandwich. Pictured are the egg salad wraps I made for my husband's Father's Day lunch.  He loves egg salad!  That is a sprig of fresh parsley from the garden as well.  

I use the method for making perfect hard boiled eggs as the base for the egg salad.  Once the eggs are cooked, cooled and peeled I mash them then add finely chopped onions, fresh ground pepper and fresh ground sea salt followed by stirring in Miracle Whip® dressing to get a nice spooning consistency.  The egg salad is then ready for using in sandwiches or wraps.

I think my hubby likes egg salad. I know he likes potato salad. I never had those things growing up and some of them are hard for me to get used to, haha.
But I do like reading about them here. I think I'll ask him if he likes it.
Did you use egg roll wraps for the wraps?

Hi Linda :) Egg salad sandwiches are a family favourite here. The wraps used were soft tortilla shells found in the bread aisle. There is usually 10 in a package. They come in plain, whole wheat a a couple of different flavours depending on the brand. I use tortilla shells for most of my sandwich wraps.
