German Egg Salad Sandwich – Healthy Bread Spread

german egg salad sandwich

The German egg salad sandwich is a healthy and easy to make bread spread recipe. It’s an open sandwich or a Belegtes Brot as we say in German. The classic version is a piece of bread or half of a roll plus a spread such as egg salad on top. If the spread is just butter we call it a “Butterbrot”. If we place cheese on top we call it “Käsebrot”, with ham it will be a “Schinkenbrot”.
We normally don’t put the bread halves together. So when you order a “Schinkenbrot” (ham sandwich) in a German restaurant you get it served on one slice. Enjoy this bread spread. Happy Cooking!
