Easy Egg Salad Recipe
This yummy egg salad recipe makes great comfort food! It’s one of those great recipes that is full of protein and so fast and easy to throw together. I decided to make it because our chickens have been working overtime and I had four or five dozen eggs in the fridge! This recipe used up ten of them, so that was exciting. The nice thing about this recipe is if you don’t have it in your budget to have meat all of the time, eggs are a great source of protein and cheaper than meat! The thing that makes this egg salad recipe great in my opinion is the yellow mustard. It gives it a nice kick of flavor. Try it—you will love it!
Egg Salad Recipe
Egg Salad Ingredients
10 hard boiled eggs
1/2 c mayonnaise
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
Salt and pepper (to taste)
How to Make Egg Salad
First you need to hard boil your eggs. I know that seems like an elementary task, but I talked to a young newlywed a few days ago who had never boiled and egg, so let’s go over that first 🙂
Put the eggs in a pot of water on the stove.
Turn the heat on high. Bring it to a boil. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to medium to medium high. Boil them for 10-12 minutes.
Next, move the pot carefully to your kitchen sink. Turn on the cold water and let it run in the pot long enough for the water in the pot to turn cold.
Let the eggs sit in the cold water for 10 minutes. Voila! You have hard boiled eggs! Now you are ready to make your egg salad!
Dice the eggs and place them in a bowl.
Add the mayonnaise and mustard and gently stir until thoroughly mixed. Next carefully mix in the salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until the egg salad is chilled all of the way through.
Once the egg salad is cold, you can either make it into a sandwich or a wrap, either on lettuce or a tortilla. On the sandwich I made, I used ciabatta bread and romaine lettuce.
It is yummy!
