Egg Salad Pinwheels

Egg Salad Pinwheel Sandwiches

This is one of our favorite tea sandwiches for spring and summer. We’ve also got a yummy Egg Salad with Ham variation at the end of this recipe. We hope you enjoy it!

Egg Salad Pinwheels

1 large loaf of Bakery Bread, sliced horizontally
3 cups of egg salad**
24-30 small green olives, drained
Softened butter or margarine

1. Discard top and bottom slices of bread loaf. Slice crusts off of each remaining horizontal slice to form a long rectangle.

2. Slightly flatten each slice with a rolling pin. Lightly butter one side of bread slice.

3. Spread a thin layer of egg salad over buttered side of bread. (Spread egg salad almost to edges.)

4. Lay a row of olives across one short end of bread slice. Roll bread over olives and continue to roll to end of slice. (Like a jelly roll.)

5. Wrap roll snugly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or overnight. (This will help the roll hold it’s shape.) Continue with remaining bread slices.

6. Remove plastic and slice rolls into 1/2 inch thick sandwiches, 6-8 slices per roll. Makes 24-32 sandwiches depending on how many slices of bread you have and how thick you cut the sandwiches.
