Egg salad is a favorite of the boy in our home. I try to steer clear of processed lunch meats as much as possible. He does not eat eggs unless they are in egg salad or deviled eggs.
Yesterday he asked me to make some egg salad for his lunch after collecting eggs from the chicken coop.
Here is our recipe:
Hard boil your eggs (I hard boil them by placing them in a pot with cold water and a teaspoon of salt making sure the eggs are covered. Bring the pot to a boil and turn the heat down so they are simmering setting the timer for 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately run cold water into the pot until the pot is cold. Let the eggs sit in the cold water for 5 minutes and then peel).
5 hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup salad dressing or mayonnaise
1/8 tsp. salt/pepper & garlic powder
dash of yellow mustard
Refrigerate for an hour until it’s cold
Then you can add whatever you like. Some of our favorites include: green olives, pimento, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce or tomato.
This is a yummy sandwich on warm summer days and in the winter in a lunch box!!
