♥ Egg Salad Sandwich

I love egg salad sandwiches...not those cold egg salad sandwiches you get at your local deli that are full of chopped celery, pickles, onions, and anything else you can chop up. I love just basic egg salad, still warm.... on light buttered toast, with just a little mayo and a little pepper and nothing else. Now and then I might add a little mustard powder but not often. You can add whatever you want, but my idea of a classic egg salad sandwich is all about the eggs. Here's a snap shot of my breakfast this morning.....

Classic Egg Salad Sandwich

6 eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (Hellman's)
pepper to taste (optional)
Your favorite bread, toasted lightly and buttered

To hard boil eggs – Gently place eggs into a single layer in a sauce pan. Add just enough water to cover the eggs completely. Bring the water to a rapid boil for about 5 minutes. Then remove eggs from heat tightly cover with a lid. Let the pan site for 10 minutes. Transfer eggs into a bowl with cold water. Allow to sit for a few minutes and crack and peel.

Chop hard boiled eggs. Place chopped eggs in a medium bowl. Mix in mayo, 1 tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you like. Add a little pepper to taste. Spread egg salad onto toasted and buttered bread slices.

You will have enough here to make three sandwiches. I keep it in the refrigerator and then microwave it to warm it up again the next day.

  1. This made me so hungry!! But I'm already having one of your other dishes for dinner so this shall be my breakfast! I love egg salad. YUMMM!! And I definitely prefer it without all the extras. If I wanted extras, I'd had ordered potatoe salad! Haha!

  2. Awesome, doing this for supper Wednesday night with some homemade bread!

  3. Thanks! Great comfort food for me ... takes me back to my mom's kitchen: cozy rainy-day retreat.

  4. Exactly how I make mine - minus the pepper. Sometimes I add a little dill to compliment the pickle I always eat with them!
