Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Ina Garten's Egg Salad Toasts
I chose Ina Garten Egg Salad Tartines for this month's Ina Fridays.
What's Ina Fridays? A little gathering of bloggers devoting the first Friday of each month to the recipes of Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa.
What are tartines?
The fancy French word for open-faced sandwich. You gotta admit, tartine sounds much nicer than sandwich or toast!
The recipe for Ina Garten Egg Salad Tartines, is from her cookbook, Barefoot Contessa at Home: Everyday Recipes You'll Make Over and Over Again
In the recipe's introduction, Ina says that egg salad is her "feel-good" food. She makes hers with mustard and lots of fresh dill.
In recent years, I've come to feel the same way about egg salad.
I love it and eat it often, both for breakfast and lunch.
And now that I've tasted her version with mustard and dill, I think it's definitely the way to go.
I made a half batch (4 servings) of Ina Garten Egg Salad Tartines. And traded out the regular mayonnaise for Best Foods Light mayo to make them more Weight Watchers friendly.
And sometimes I use part light mayo and part plain nonfat Greek yogurt, or all yogurt.
Smoked salmon really elevates these tartines from simple to special.
And since I've discovered the ease of making boiled eggs in my InstantPot, pulling these sandwiches together is a snap.
No smoked salmon?
They are yummy with smoked turkey, ham or bacon too
Skip the salmon and substitute slices of fresh tomato and cucumber
No fresh dill?
Substitute dried dill or another fresh herb such as parsley, basil or cilantro
Serve the egg salad stuffed into a tomato, in lettuce wraps, or atop rounds of cucumber
