Luckily, these side dishes will fill you up.

  1. When I make egg salad sandwiches, I always serve my copycat recipe of New England clam chowder from a
    By-gone restaurant in Chattanooga, TN. it’s totally different
    From any recipe I ever sampled. My husband loves it, but
    Only with egg salad.
