How to Make Egg Salad ... German-style

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 small can mushrooms, drained and chopped
  • about ½ cup mayonnaise (purchased or homemade)
  • 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.

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.
  • Make this extra special by using your own homemade mayonnaise. It's so easy to do. Check it out here.

Oma says,

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!
