Egg Salad Sandwich - From Men's Health

It can be hard to find healthy sources of protein that don't require grilling or expensive cuts of meat. Below is an egg salad recipe I used during the first two contests that is delicious and easy to make. It's lower in fat than the usual egg salad because it relies more on egg whites and fat free sour cream instead of yolks and mayo.

19 grams of protein per serving. Makes 2 servings.

2 hard boiled eggs
4 hard boiled egg whites
2 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
1 Tbsp chipotle mustard
2 Tbsp finely chopped onion
1/2 Tsp dried dill
dash of ground pepper
4 slices of whole-grain bread, toasted
1 (1.5 oz) seedless raisins

1. In a bowl, mash the eggs and egg whites into small pieces with a potato masher. Stir in sour cream, mustard and onion unti well mixed.

2. Add the dill and pepper

3. Spread on toast, serve wtih raisins.
