I recently found a very old recipe book, published in 1944 and I was fascinated to read …
“When it is necessary to make sandwiches several hours before they are to be used,
they may be wrapped in paraffin paper, or slightly dampened cloth,
or placed in a stone jar”
How things have changed since then…
I somehow don’t fancy carting a stone jar to a picnic!

The chicken with lemon and basil recipe from lunch ideas, is ideal for picnic sandwich recipes, but really a roast chicken, or even a chicken from the shop will be tasty too.
For these chicken sandwiches... amongst the best sandwich for a picnic
You will need…
Thick slices of cooked chicken... slice or pull apart
Thick slices of tomato
Fresh basil leaves
Lemon slithers.... very thin slices
Scattering of Feta cheese
Optional... Barossa potato salad... very nice though!
To put together…
Start by buttering both slices of lovely fresh bread... or use hummus for added flavor.
Layer chicken, lemon, basil and tomato... then potato salad... into the center of the bread, tapering off at the edges.
When you put the top bread on, the ingredients squeeze together a little and show at the edges of the sandwich, without falling everywhere... well only a bit will!
This is great in a wrap, or a pocket of pita bread, as well as any of your favorite bread or rolls.

Are your eggs fresh?
Check that the eggs are fresh enough to eat... I love free range, but sometimes we're not sure how old the eggs are… and there is nothing more off putting than a rotten egg! It's easy to leave an egg in the fridge too long also, so it's a good idea to do this anyway.
I like to check that they are fresh by popping them into a bowl of cold water before using.
If they feel light and immediately float… toss!
As long as they are OK, eggs which are a few days old, are easier to peel than really fresh ones.
To boil eggs… place them in a saucepan with cold water to cover and bring to boil.
Simmer for 6-7 minutes, no longer, and then plunge them into icy cold water...
leave there for a few minutes and the shell comes off easily!
I find cracking on the end then along one side, helps the shell comes off too.
Boiled eggs can be kept for 4-5 days in the fridge.
Boil the eggs...
Curry powder is popular in egg sandwiches but I prefer this recipe. This delicious version is not one of the usual egg salad sandwich recipes.
After all, the girls eggs deserve a yummy sandwich!
