The Best Egg Salad recipe should be easy, creamy, and perfect for sandwiches! This Classic Egg Salad is my childhood favorite!


  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon yellow mustard


  1. 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!
  2. If cooking eggs on the stove top, place eggs in a single layer in the saucepan. Cover with cold water. Bring to boil.
  3. Once water is boiling, remove from heat and cover for 8 minutes. After this, place immediately in a medium bowl of ice water for several minutes. 
  4. Peel hard boiled eggs and place in a mixing bowl. Add mayonnaise, salt, Worcestershire sauce and mustard.
  5. Use a potato masher to combine all the ingredients. You decide how chunky you like YOUR egg salad!


  • Make sure you are using KOSHER salt. It is more coarse than table salt. If you want to use table salt, you will use HALF the amount listed.
  • Eggs. 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).
  • Storage. 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!
  • Large Batch- feel free to double or trip the recipe if you need more egg salad!
