Best Egg Salad Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 small can mushrooms, chopped
  • about 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • chives to garnish

Instructions:

  • Peel and chop hard-boiled eggs
  • Mix eggs together with mushrooms, mayonnaise, and mustard.
  • Garnish with chopped chives.
  • Serve with toast or buns.

Chopped nuts make for a really different treat. Minced ham, chicken, or beef are good additions as well.

Remember to keep this salad, 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.

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! I'll sometimes add some extra cooked egg whites and remove a couple of egg yolks in order to reduce the cholesterol level. It hardly makes any difference to the final salad.

Make every day a day of JOY!

"Rejoice always!" 1 Thessalonians 5:16 (KJV)
