A family tradition

Christmas Egg Sandwich Rolls

These sliders are close to my heart, I used to make them every year with my grandma. Now, I’m the one doing it for my kids, and someday, hopefully, grandkids. Since I can remember those sandwiches were part of the Christmas feast (buffet style) at home.

Every year, on the morning of the 24th of December, I would make those egg sandwich rolls, eat a few at night with all the great food on the buffet table of my mom. These sandwiches are at it’s best the next day for breakfast! Oh my! The leftovers for breakfast are divine! 

Kid friendly recipe

CHRISTMAS EGG SANDWICH ROLLS

Let’s face it, egg sandwiches are an all times big favorite for the kids. Plus, these are extra fun to make with the kiddos. The rolling part is the fun part! Back in the days, this type of long bread was pink, but nowadays it’s back to white.

The technique

Christmas Egg Sandwich Rolls

You’ll need some clean moist towel for rolling the sandwiches, install it underneath the bread and once filled with the eff spread and center pieces, use the side of the towel to roll gently the sandwich. Once the roll is done, transfer it right away to a plastic wrap and roll it in it gently but tightly. Twist the plastic ends until tight and leave in the fridge for a few hours, or until it’s time to rumble.

To finish it up, you’ll need a sharp thin knife to cut the sandwiches without making a mess. Unwrap the sandwiches, cut the ends first and then cut about a thumb thick each sandwiches. Here are a few steps in pictures.

      • The package i used was without the crust but sometimes you have to cut it off yourself. The kids will love it! Enjoy!

    these look delicious! My mom used to make sandwiches like this when I was a kid – I haven’t seen them since!

  3. Aw I love family recipes like this. The history makes them so special. I’m sure your Mamie will forgive you for making them early <3

  4. Good to see some old favorites making a comeback. I remember my grandmother cutting off the crust of the bread when as a special treat. Nice.

    Looks wonderful. I do have one question, where do you find the bread that isn’t sliced and what kind of shape is it in?
