You really want to dothis one!

Its a "starter" recipe...you want to take a bit of care and use double yolked eggs, as that's where the "taste" jumps up...and use Hellman's as opposed Miracle Whip...

The other comments give other great thoughts...chopped scallions, fresh picked green pepper, celery, and such...mustard belongs on the bread/bun in my opinion, but this one makes my mouth water...

I remember making this when i was a kid. I would come home from school while mom was still at work and make myself a quick simple egg salad sandwich to tie me over. I did feel like this egg salad was missing a little flavor though. I added some salt, pepper, and mustard. I also love just using it like a dip and eat it with crackers. Great starting recipe to tweak with.

I like to add regular yellow mustard and very finely chopped chives

This is the perfect basic egg salad recipe, but I like to ranch dressing instead of Mayo. It is the extra spices that gives it that extra zing. A little bit of mustard and you have the perfect egg salad sandwhich served on white bread. YUM!

This is exactly how my grandmother makes it. It's so easy, and SO GOOD. I remember her adding a little salt and pepper to taste, but that's about it. Simple is the way to do it. Thanks for sharing this one! :-)

I love simple egg salad and this nails it! I had some eggs in my fridge I wanted to use up before they hit their expiration date, so used Hard-Boiled Eggs to hard boil them and then followed your recipe. I found the perfect combo for me by using 5 eggs and 7 tablespoons of light miracle whip for some zang. I added salt, pepper, paprika, and ground mustard and served on wheat bread. WOW! That is one addicting sandwich. ;) Thanks for sharing!
