Ingredients

8 large eggs

1/4 cup mayonnaise 

3 tablespoons chopped scallions, white and green parts (about 2 scallions)

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped chives 

1 teaspoon high-quality white truffle oil, such as Sabatino or Urbani 

Kosher salt

Ground white pepper

8 slices square, firm white bread

8 large eggs

1/4 cup mayonnaise 

3 tablespoons chopped scallions, white and green parts (about 2 scallions)

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped chives 

1 teaspoon high-quality white truffle oil, such as Sabatino or Urbani 

Kosher salt

Ground white pepper

8 slices square, firm white bread

Directions

  1. Place the eggs in a single layer in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil the eggs for 1 minute and then remove the saucepan from the heat and let the eggs stand for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse the eggs under cold water until they are cool enough to handle. Peel and place the peeled eggs in a large bowl.
  2. Mash the eggs to a coarse consistency using a fork or a potato masher. Add the mayonnaise, scallions, chives, truffle oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and mix thoroughly to combine. Adjust the seasonings to taste.
  3. Cut the crusts from the bread and set aside for another purpose.
  4. Using 2 slices of the bread, make a sandwich, taking care to spread the egg salad in an even layer and all the way to the edges of the bread. With a large serrated knife, cut the sandwich diagonally in both directions to create 4 equal triangles. Repeat with the remaining bread and salad to make 16 tea sandwiches.
