Easter is upon us! Are you wondering what to do with those three dozen hardboiled eggs that the kiddos dyed? I don’t know about you, but 700 deviled eggs can be a bit much. I get deviled egged out. It seems like that and egg salad sandwiches are the only things to do with all of them.
I was craving some sort of open faced, crispy, cheesy (duh) type of sandwich a few weeks ago. I decided to give this a try because, why not? I feel like I allow myself so much more room for creativity when I am trying to be a healthier person. Eating whatever I want is boring because nine times out of ten, Ill make stuff that I’ve been making for years because I know it is delicious. I love challenging myself in the kitchen.
I know these sound a little weird, even I was like, “what am I doing?” when they were cooking. I was almost afraid to even take a bite, but they are so, so, good! They got E’s stamp of approval. He even ate them the following morning for breakfast.
The mayo concoction is actually something I use when I am making some grilled sandwiches or panini just for a little extra yum! I’d eat that stuff by itself. Easily. No questions asked.
I hope you enjoy and I hope you have lots of fun coloring those eggs.
P.S.- I made these with non dyed eggs, and they totally tasted the same as the dyed eggs. Just in case you were wanting to rush out the store and make this ASAP.
P.P.S.- Pepper says HAPPY EASTER ALL!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl add the light mayo, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, poppy seeds, minced onion, and chives. Mix until combined well.
