Egg Salad Florentine Sandwiches

Egg Salad Florentine Sandwiches

After help from an adult to boil and chop the ingredients, kids can prepare the rest of this recipe themselves! This recipe comes to us from our friends at Davidson’s Safest Choice® Eggs.

Serves 6 (serving size 1/2 sandwich)

Cooking Tip of the Week: When preparing hard boiled eggs, choose the oldest eggs you have on hand (ideally about a week old). This will make peeling the eggs much easier!
Food for Thought: The word “Florentine” means “in the style of Florence,” which is a city in Italy. It’s used to describe dishes that feature spinach, such as Eggs Florentine. The origin of the name dates back to the 1800s when Catherine de Medici, an Italian noblewoman born in Florence, married the king of France and became France’s queen. She reportedly loved spinach so much that she imported spinach seeds from Italy to France and brought in Italian chefs to cook it for her.
Family Dinner Conversation Starter: What is the name of the place where you were born? What is that place known for?


Adult: Hard boil the eggs.

Adult: Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a pot with a steamer basket for the spinach. Steam spinach just long enough to wilt it. Drain and press dry with clean paper towels.

Together: Combine the eggs, spinach, onions, garlic, and parmesan cheese. Fold in the mustard and mayonnaise.

Together: Assemble the sandwiches. Serve fresh fruit on the side.
