A tasty egg salad sandwich recipe that is simple and easy to make with hard cooked eggs, mayonnaise, and pepper. Serve egg salad on bread, croissants, or crackers for lunch, brunch, or an appetizer.

An egg salad sandwich is one of the most basic recipes for hard cooked eggs.

Since it can be ready to eat in about 10 minutes it can be packed for a nutritious high protein lunch.


Try changing the bread to something with a little more body, such as a French or Italian bread, rather than the standard store bought breads. It will make a much better tasting sandwich.

To serve egg salad on crackers for part of a brunch menu, use a quality cracker with a mild flavor such as butter, sesame, or wheat. Place a tablespoon of egg salad on each, top with 1 piece of sliced green olive and sprinkle with paprika. Place on a tray to serve for brunch or as a party appetizer.

Make Better Hard Cooked Eggs

One of the biggest helps I have found in making any type of deviled egg is using an egg cooker instead of cooking eggs in a kettle. They turn out consistently better when you use an egg cooker. You can take a look at the one I own below. This is one piece of kitchen equipment that is worth the investment and shelf space.

One of the things I like best about using an egg cooker is being able to peel the eggs while they are still warm. Often, when I have made hard cooked eggs I have had to refrigerate them for a few hours before they would peel well. Now I can cook the eggs in my egg cooker and peel them about 15 minutes after they are done. It is a great time saver and I find the shells peel much better. This is what I use at home and love it! You get consistent hard cooked eggs that peel easily.

A tasty egg salad recipe that is simple and easy to make with hard cooked eggs, mayonnaise, and pepper.
Author:
Recipe type: Lunch
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 6 hard cooked eggs
  • ¼-1/2 cup Hellman's Real Mayonnaise
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 8 slices bread or 4 croissants (2 per serving)
Instructions
  1. Peel 6 hard cooked eggs and rinse if necessary to make sure there is no shell left on the egg. Pat dry.
  2. Place all in a medium sized mixing bowl and mash the eggs with a fork until they are relatively uniform in size.
  3. Add in ¼ cup mayonnaise to start. Add more mayonnaise if needed to make a paste-like consistency, up to ½ cup.
  4. Grind the fresh pepper to taste and mix in.
  5. Serve on a soft bread with a crusty shell.
Notes
Makes 4 sandwiches.

Note: You may also add salt if desired, but I feel the mayonnaise adds enough flavor on its own that you do not need any extra salt. If you choose to add salt, do so sparingly in small increments.

To serve egg salad on crackers for part of a brunch menu, use a quality cracker with a mild flavor such as butter, sesame, or wheat. Place a tablespoon of egg salad on each, top with 1 piece of sliced green olive and sprinkle with paprika. Place on a tray to serve for brunch or as a party appetizer.
