Egg salad recipe
There is nothing better on a nice summers day than a creamy egg salad as a side dish or as a sandwich filling. We love making egg salad sandwiches for packed lunches or when we are travelling to take with us. They are quite nutritious and will fill you up in no time. This must be one of the easiest recipes around.
They are really very easy to make and can be prepared in about 20 minutes. This is another simple recipe that my Mum had perfected – 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.
The basic ingredients for this recipe are basically some hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, dill, mustard, spring onions and some salt and pepper. The mustard adds something special to the egg salad.
Are eggs 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 them using a spoon.
In the past, I used to keep chickens and our chickens used to run free in the yard, which meant if we found eggs they had laid in the garden we never really knew how old they were.
The way to find out is to see if you egg floats. If it does you should not risk eating it. A good fresh egg will sink to the bottom of a bowl of water.
This easy egg salad recipe is a great addition at any BBQ or summer get together and is the perfect sandwich filling as it will fill that gap.
