This week's recipe is Tamago Sando or Japanese Egg Salad Sandwich. What makes this the best egg salad sandwich is the Mayonnise. So, let's get started.
½ cup mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¾ teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 dashes hot sauce, or to taste
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon white sugar
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon heavy cream
4 slices soft white bread
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
Place eggs in the bottom of a saucepan. Add 1/4 inch of water. Heat over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Cover and steam for 11 minutes. Turn off the heat and drain water carefully; pour cold water over and let cool.
Mix mayonnaise, salt, sugar, mustard, hot sauce, lemon juice, and vinegar for Kewpie-style mayonnaise together. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed.
Peel eggs. Mash in a shallow bowl with the side and back of a fork until desired texture is reached. Add salt, sugar, cayenne, heavy cream, and 3 tablespoons Kewpie-style mayonnaise. Stir to combine. Wrap and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour. Taste and adjust seasonings.
Butter bread slices and use 1/2 of the egg salad on each sandwich. Cut crusts off before serving.
