How to Make Quick Easy Egg Salad

Save

Egg salad sandwiches are easy to pull together for a gathering or a quick lunch. Start with a basic recipe and then tweak the ingredients for just the right taste. Use a tangy salad dressing instead of mayonnaise, add chopped celery or pickle, or sprinkle in paprika, curry powder or Cajun seasoning. You can also add a piece of leaf lettuce or a bit of red pepper. Layer the egg salad between three stacked pieces of bread rather than two and trim away the crusts for an elegant presentation.

Things You'll Need

  • 5 eggs
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Place the eggs in a medium-sized pot and add enough water to generously cover the eggs. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high and then turn off the heat and let the eggs sit, covered, in the hot water.

  • Wait 15 minutes and then drain the warm water and run cool water over the eggs.

  • Peel the eggshells and place the hard-boiled eggs in a bowl.

  • Chop the eggs finely with a knife or fork. Add 2 or 3 heaping spoonfuls of mayonnaise and mix in well. Stir in any additional ingredients you have selected.

  • Add salt and pepper to taste and then spread over the bread and serve.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can change this easily to suit your tastes. Some people like to mix in pickle relish. You can also season it will a greek or cajun style seasoning to give it an extra bit of flavor.
