Japanese Egg Salad Sandwich (Tamago Sando) image

I'm going to show you my take on the world-famous tamago sando, plus how to make a version of a mayonnaise so addictive, it literally has a cult following. If that wasn't enough, I'm also going to tease an upcoming video for the world's most critically-acclaimed white bread.

Time 1h25m

Yield 2

Number Of Ingredients 14

4 large eggs
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
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
½ teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
¼ teaspoon white sugar
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon heavy cream
4 slices soft white bread
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened


  • 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 if you're fancy.

I'm not sure what I did wrong, but my egg salad sandwich turned out really dry. Maybe I didn't use enough mayonnaise?

I'm not a fan of mayonnaise, so I made this sandwich with Greek yogurt instead. It was still very good!

I was disappointed with this sandwich. The egg salad was too salty and the bread was too dry.
