Making Egg Salad Sandwiches

Egg salad sandwiches are a favorite in my home with the ten and six year old. I personally prefer a nice egg salad sandwich on toasted bread with a piece of cheese and some salt sprinkled on it. Today I share with you how I make my egg salad ….

how do I Make egg salad


  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 tablespoons mayo or salad dressing
  • bowl
  • spoon and fork
  • tsp of salt
  • bread

Make The Egg Salad

Place six eggs into a pan and fill with water. Place on stove on high heat, bringing to a boil. Once the water reaches a boiling point, let eggs boil for 10 minutes.

Pour the eggs from hot pan into a bowl that won’t suffer from having boiling hot water dumped on it under cold running water in the sink. Run cold water on the eggs, keep eggs in a bowl covered in cold water. Put the bowl with hard boiled eggs covered in water in fridge for about ten minutes.

Prepare a bowl with mayo or salad dressing on side, a fork and a tablespoon.

Take the eggs out of the fridge and peel off the shell. Wash each egg off in cold faucet water prior to placing in your mixing bowl.

Use the fork to mash up the eggs and egg yolk until it’s fine without  a lot of chunks. This is where you can play with a texture that works best for you.

Add two tablespoons of mayo or salad dressing to the bowl of chopped up eggs. Mix well.

Make Your Sandwich

Take two pieces of bread, you can toast them in the toaster if you prefer first. Add some egg salad to one of the pieces of bread, top with a sprinkle of salt {if desired} then a piece of cheese {if desired}. Place other piece of bread on top and voila you have your very own egg salad sandwich.

Servings - makes approximately 6 egg salad sandwiches on regular sized sandwich bread.


How do you Like YOUR Eggs? Giveaway #EBbrunch

The month of May is National Egg Month and most of you who follow me on Twitter and on Facebook know that I am in love with eggs, but it seems some just do not settle with my belly since getting older. It is rare for me to find that particular brand of egg that I can eat and digest without having stomach upset, but recently I hosted an Eggland’s Best “Eggs-pect the Best” brunch with a few guests who were able to get free egg coupons and try out delicious brunch items.

If someone asked me how I like my eggs I would have to answer depending upon the time of day. For instance, I will be making egg salad sandwiches & deviled eggs for my sisters wedding on Saturday using Eggland’s Best eggs which are my favorite mid day ways to eat eggs. In the morning I much prefer to have a sunny side up fried egg sandwich or an onion, cheese and egg omelet. Of course I enjoy using eggs in cakes and brownies for those special baking days with my munchkins as well!

I must say that Eggland’s Best Eggs were a hit with guests and my belly so now I am happy to say that I will be featuring them at my sisters wedding on Saturday, June 2nd to share my love of this brand of eggs! Since I found eggs that settle well in my tummy, I had to share the brand with you all:
