You don't have to be a vegetarian to love this Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe.
Begin with one "loaf" of pita bread (the round, hollow bread — often covered with sesame seeds — that's sold at health food and Middle Eastern stores and some supermarkets) for every two sandwiches that you intend to make. Cut each loaf in half with scissors.
Hard-boil two eggs for each sandwich, then cool them and mash 'em in a bowl. Add finely chopped celery, minced onion, minced garlic (if you wish), a pinch of sweet basil or oregano, a sprinkle of Vegesal or some other vegetized salt, and just enough mayonnaise to bind the mixture. Spread both inner sides of a half pita loaf with the egg blend, half-fill the pocket with torn lettuce, and fill the remaining space with alfalfa sprouts. Decorate the finished sandwiches as desired, with sliced tomato or with any of the garnishes mentioned in the Tomato, Cheese and Onion Sandwich recipe.
