This is a basic egg salad I've made for years. I like it just as it is, but you can customize it by adding in chopped onion, tomatoes, relish or whatever you like.


  1. Place eggs in a pot and add enough water to cover eggs by at least one inch.
  2. Quickly bring the water to a boil, then remove from heat and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove eggs from hot water and immediately place them in a bowl filled with ice until they're cooled completely.
  4. Peel the cooled eggs and dice or mash them.
  5. Mix together mayonnaise and mustard; combine with the eggs.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to combine.

Thank you so much. 1st timer. Recipe so simple and easy to assemble. I used free range organic eggs. I added sweet pickles and used spicy Dijon and specked with tobacco sauce. Instead of bread served it in spinach wrap and multigrain wrap.

Great recipe...... The only thing I do different is dice the eggs while they're still hot. I love it warm

Added dill pickle relish and a small squirt of balsamic vinegar. Something about a little kick of sweet with sour and eggs made it super tasty.
