We’re big fans of egg salad around here and seemed fitting for Easter Sunday when we didn’t do much else.

It’s a super simple meal but deeply satisfying, and besides for the annoyance of peeling the eggs, very quick and easy.

I like to think that my recipe is particularly good (everyone always wants seconds), so I suggest you give it a try.

Egg Salad Sandwiches
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Sandwiches
Serves: per person
  • 3 hard boiled eggs per person
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise per person
  • ½ teaspoon grainey spicy brown mustard per person
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder per person
  • 1 tablespoon finely diced onion per person
  1. Slice eggs and mix and mash in a bowl with remaining ingredients until fully combined and egg pieces are aesthetically pleasing to you.
  2. Spread about ½ cup - ¾ cup mixture on your favorite bread (I suggest potato) with crisp lettuce. Cut in half or diagonally, and enjoy!

I suggest you use mine and Alton Brown’s preferred egg boiling method, works every time.

Brie is a fair-weather foodie. She wouldn’t go as far as to say she has a love/hate relationship with food, because she loves food and food clearly loves her; it loves her so much that it holds on as tight as it can and never lets go; mostly in the middle region. Her cooking style involves a lot of butter or garlic or onions, things that have “creamy” or “cheesy” in the title, also anything that you could add bacon to. She’s been making the noms since she was tall enough to reach the counter, and has been eating for even longer*. Brie’s passion for cooking-slash-baking will fluctuate however, usually correlating with how sick she is of doing dishes. Never-the-less, her passion for eating (sushi, take out Chinese, hole in the wall diner-y type foods) is as constant as the sun, the moon, death, and taxes. She also sometimes talks in the third person; don’t worry, you’ll get used to it.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
