The classic rolled sandwich with the gherkin in the middle. Peanut butter and banana rolls work the same way. If the bakery won't slice the bread horizontally, buy an uncut loaf and slice it yourself. Supermarkets with in store bakeries are the most likely to be able to cut it. Don't buy really good bread, you need the elasticity of mass produced bread to be able to roll the sandwiches.
Ready in: 30 minutes, plus 8 hours chilling time
1 loaf horizontally sliced white and/or brown bread, crusts removed
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
12 hard boiled eggs, grated
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup finely grated carrot
2 tablespoons chopped green onion, white part only
Salt and freshly ground pepper
10 sweet gherkins
Spread each slice of bread with a light coating of softened butter.
Combine grated egg, mayonnaise, mustard, carrot and green onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread about 1/4 cup filling evenly on each slice bread. Place gherkins across short end. Roll up into a cylinder.
Wrap each roll tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Slice each roll into 4 or 5 sandwiches. Makes about 40 sandwiches
