How to Make Egg Salad ... German-style

Ingredients:

  • about 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • Garnish with chopped chives.
  • Serve with toast or buns.

Tips on Making Egg Salad

  • Remember to keep this "Eiersalat", as well as any other containing mayonnaise, cold.
  • An easy way to keep it cold is to put it in a small bowl that is sitting inside a larger bowl filled with ice. Looks pretty that way as well.
  • Don't like mushrooms? Omit them. 
  • Want more spice? Add some. 
  • Don't like mustard? Omit it. 
  • Love pickles? Add them.
  • There are so many different variations on the same recipe. Try it with chopped gherkins, celery, or olives. 
  • Chopped nuts make for a really different treat. Minced ham, chicken, or beef are good additions as well. REALLY! Sounds strange, but it's wunderbar!
  • I'll sometimes add some extra cooked egg whites and remove a couple of egg yolks. It hardly makes any difference to the final salad.

Check out How to Hard Boil Eggs to learn how to do this easily. It's the way I learned how when my first-born was a toddler.

It came from a baby book, not sure of the title anymore. It suggested that this way the egg didn't turn out "tough."

Not sure what that meant at the time, but I liked making them this easy way. It became my standard way of making them for any recipes using eggs that needed to be hard-boiled.

Eggs are such a great way to add protein to your diet. They contain not only high-quality protein, but do so for few calories. Truly a diet food!
