Truffled Egg Salad Tramezzini

Truffled Egg Salad Tramezzini
"Tramezzini" are dainty little crustless sandwiches that are served everywhere in Italy. They can be made of just about anything - cheese, anchovy butter, tuna and so on. Our truffled version is filled with a rustic egg salad that looks homey but tastes classy.

8 large hardboiled eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Truffle salt, to taste
Good quality white sandwich bread, crusts trimmed
white truffle oil
Fresh watercress or arugula (optional)



Shell and hand-chop the hardboiled eggs and place in a large bowl (chopping the eggs results in a much better texture than mashing them).

Add the mayonnaise, mustard, olive oil and truffle salt and mix well.


Cut each slice of bread in half diagonally. Spoon the egg salad generously on each slice. Tuck a leaf or two of the watercress or arugula into the egg salad, if using.

Drizzle each open-face sandwich with a drop or two of the truffle oil and serve.
