They are really very simple to make and can be prepared in about 20 minutes.

This is another simple recipe that my Mum had perfected – we would go off to the Point to Point (horse races in the countryside) with a picnic hamper, some egg salad sandwiches and a bottle of bubbly. Perfect.

How to make egg salad

This creamy egg salad recipe is really easy to make. The hardest part is boiling the eggs, but even that is pretty straightforward.

Some hard boiled eggs

The basic ingredients for this recipe are basically some hard-boiled eggs, Hellmann’s Real mayonnaise, dill, mustard, spring onions and some salt and pepper. The mustard adds something special to the egg salad.

How do you know if eggs are fresh?

When boiling the eggs it is important not to undercook them. I cook my perfect hard-boiled eggs for about 10 minutes and I only add them to the water when the water is boiling. I add and retrieve them using a spoon.

In the past, I used to keep chickens and our chickens used to run free in the yard. However, this meant that if we found eggs they had laid in the garden we never really knew how old they were.

The best way to find out is to see if your egg floats. If it does you probably should not risk eating it. A good fresh egg will sink to the bottom of a bowl of water.

If it doesn’t sink then it may be cracked, damaged or too old.
