Egg Salad

"I've been making this since I was a kid. Its a great way to use up hard boiled eggs at Easter. Great for breakfast, or lunch or stuffed into cherry tomatoes as an appetizer! It tastes better if it sits for an hour."

    You really want to dothis one!<br/><br/>Its a "starter" 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...<br/><br/>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.

    This is the base of my egg salad recipe as well. I love it and its so easy! Usually I'll use miracle whip instead of mayo, just to give it a little tang, and i'll add a squirt of mustard and a dash of worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. I like to serve it on white bread or croissants. Thanks for posting!


<p>I have been in manufacuting for over 20 years and love it, I tried to stay away for a while but realised its a daily goal that brings much satisfaction to me and I want to keep improving it every day. I have the most wonderful husband anyone could ask for and a beautiful daughter at home and a son on his on (mostly) and they gave me a beautiful new grandson in June. I live in Moses Lake, WA and enjoy hiking, camping, fishing and four wheeling. I love the zaar and find something new each time I visit.
