I remember growing up and people didn’t hide plastic Easter Eggs. We boiled and colored hard boiled eggs…and the “bunny” hid them.
And then we ate them for days. I can’t imagine why we thought leaving eggs out overnight was a good thing, but knock on wood we survived our childhood.
One of the best foods I loved after Easter was egg salad sandwiches.
For some reason, my mom didn’t make it often during the year….but after Easter we ate it for days. And usually it had a blue or pink tint to it from the food coloring.
I didn’t realize until I was an adult that there is some bad tasting egg salad recipes out there.
So, for what it’s worth, I’m going to share with you all my favorite egg salad recipe from MY childhood!
How to Make Egg Salad
First, start by hard boiling your eggs. If you have an instant pot, I find they turn out perfect every time, and are easy to peel. Use my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs Recipe!
If cooking eggs on the stove top, place eggs in a single layer in the saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to boil.
Once water is boiling, remove from heat and cover for 8 minutes. After this, place immediately in a bowl of ice water for several minutes.
Peel hard boiled eggs and place in a bowl. Add mayonnaise, salt, Worcestershire sauce and mustard.
The Worcestershire sauce is my secret ingredient (or at least my mom’s secret ingredient). It adds a delicious salty flavor that’s perfect in egg salad!
Use a potato masher to combine all the ingredients. You decide how chunky you like YOUR egg salad!
Egg Salad Sandwich
Once you’ve made the best egg salad recipe, whipping up a dream sandwich is easy!
First, choose your bread. We love a classic homemade white bread or wheat…but rye bread is also a great match!
Spoon the egg salad onto the bread and enjoy!
For a delicious twist, add some slices of avocado, a splash of sriracha, or a few sprinkles of dill. I also love adding pickle relish or sliced bread and butter pickles to my egg salad sandwich!
And for a breakfast treat, toast your bread before making an open faced Egg Salad Sandwich!
Egg Salad Recipe tips and tricks
When determining HOW many eggs to boil, consider how many sandwiches you’ll be making.
I typically plan on 2 eggs per person (for each sandwich).
Egg Salad will last about 3 days in your refrigerator, so keep this in mind while planning. Be sure to store it in an airtight container as it tends to overwhelm and over power your refrigerator with an egg odor!
I usually store it in a tupperware container instead of covering a bowl with plastic wrap. This helps keep my refrigerator odor free!
