Easy Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe with Mustard

The commercially-made egg salad you buy in the grocery store is full of all sorts of additives and chemicals, which is why making your own egg salad recipes is such a good idea. Egg salad is very tasty by itself but it is even nicer if you dress it up with lettuce and tomato and serve it on fresh, fluffy bread. What about using this egg salad recipe as a filling for your lunchtime baked potato? You can serve the lettuce and tomato on the side with a little vinaigrette or lime juice drizzled over it.

Although you can use white bread if you prefer it, this egg salad sandwich recipe looks more wholesome if you use whole wheat slices, but it is your sandwich which makes it your choice. You can use any kind of mustard you like – spicy, sweet or Dijon-style would all work. The tomato and lettuce can be omitted if you do not want to use them, or you can add a slice of cheese or anything else you fancy.

There are two ways to boil eggs and this egg salad recipe details one of them, which is bringing a pan of water to a boil and then letting the eggs sit in the water, with the pan off the heat, for twelve minutes. The other method involves simmering the eggs in the water over a low heat, for about the same amount of time. Either of these methods is good, although if you want to make sure the yolks are very firm use the second method.
