Egg Salad

Egg salad is the perfect way to eat those Easter eggs for lunch. Did your kids enjoy dying eggs this year? I’m sure they did! And I’m sure they wanted to do multiple eggs in order to try out different egg dying techniques. So much fun! But what the heck are you going to do with all of those eggs now that Easter is over?? Who could possibly want to eat 12 – 24 hard boiled eggs before they go bad? What to do, what to do…I know, you should make egg salad sandwiches! What a GREAT idea for lunches!

Notice how my egg salad (pictured above) is all different colors? It probably looks a little weird. It’s because when we dyed Easter eggs, the food coloring seeped through the shells and dyed the actual eggs! It’s all good though, we used food coloring which is supposed to be used on edible goodies. In the case of this egg salad, it looks a little funky though, but definitely okay to eat. It’s a fun egg salad!

Ingredients Needed

Besides the eggs that you dyed for Easter, you won’t need many other ingredients. And the best part is that you probably already have everything in your cabinet. Therefore, when you get that craving for an egg salad sandwich, you shouldn’t need to run out to the grocery store to get everything.

Here is what you will need:

  • 8 Hard Boiled Eggs Smashed Up
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3/4 tsp Yellow Mustard Any kind is fine – if you like spicy, try dijon. If you like sweet, try honey mustard. I prefer regular yellow mustard for mine.

A Different Lunch Idea

Egg salad is good any time of the year actually. You don’t have to eat it just once a year, you can whip up this sandwich filling any time. The ingredients are minimal. And boiling eggs? It’s pretty easy! You don’t have to be a gourmet cook to make this nutritious lunch, that’s for sure! Easy and delicious meals – those are my favorite!

Oh, and it’s cheap to make. That’s another favorite thing of mine. You could whip up a batch of this in 15 minutes and make enough for a week’s worth of lunches. How great is that? And the cost is next to nothing. I believe it’s less than $2.50 for a dozen white eggs. Add in the cost of the mayo, salt, worcestshire sauce, mustard, bread and you can make lunches for under $6.00 for a WEEK! A week! A cheap lunch idea that is much healthier than fast food and less expensive. It’s a huge win!

Making the Salad

If you know how to boil eggs, you got this! If you don’t know how to boil eggs, you can still make this. Just have to put some eggs in a pot of water and boil the water (with eggs in it). Done! How easy was that? Now, let the eggs cool down – best to do this by putting them in cold water for 10+ minutes. Once cooled, peel the shells. Put the hard boiled eggs in a bowl, smash them. Then add mayo, salt, worcestershire sauce, and mustard and mix thoroughly. Finally, just scoop some of the egg salad onto your favorite bread and your lunch is served. Easy-peasy!
