Egg Salad Sandwich

Pin It

Be warned: Don't attempt to make this when you are expecting company. Boiling and peeling eggs kind of masks the house with a foul aroma for a couple hours. No one really appreciates that. And they might look at you funny. Just sayin'.

But if you aren't having company, you should go ahead and make this. I keep my egg salad pretty simple, but other options would be to add diced celery or green onions. I prefer to use light mayonnaise since I'm trying to eat healthy, but make sure you don't use Miracle Whip or one of those fat-free brands that tends to be a little sweeter. It completely changes the flavor. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 12 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. yellow mustard

Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 17 minutes. Remove from hot water. Run cold water over top of eggs to cool. Peel each egg and put on a cutting board to chop.

Place the chopped eggs in a bowl, and stir in the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir and refrigerate. Allow to chill for at least 2 hours. Serve on a sandwich with lettuce.
