Eggs are one of my favorite foods: they’re inexpensive, delicious and full of high quality protein. In just one egg there is 6 grams of protein!
I had a carton of eggs at home and the other day I felt inspired to make some egg salad. It’s great in a sandwich or to put on top of a salad. Here is how I make it:
Simple and tasty egg salad
Makes 4-6 sandwiches
- 10-12 eggs, hardboiled
- 3 heaping tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon mustard- I used yellow mustard
- pinch of paprika, ground pepper and salt to taste (all optional)
Hard boil your eggs. Once they have cooled peel the eggs and place in a bowl.
Finely chop the eggs and place in a bowl- I recommend a bowl with high sides that you can scrape down. Next, stir in the mayonnaise and mustard and mix very well. This step can require some patience to coat all the egg pieces.
Next, add a pinch of paprika, ground pepper and salt, to taste.
Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
