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.
- 8 eggs
- 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
- ½ minced red onion
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 8 slices whole wheat bread
- 1 sliced tomato

- Put the eggs in a pan and cover them with cold water.
- Bring the water to a boil, then cover the pan and take it off the heat.
- Let the eggs stand in the hot water for 12 minutes, then cool, peel and chop them.
- Mash the eggs with the mayonnaise, onion, mustard, dill, salt and black pepper, using a wooden spoon or fork.
- Divide the mixture between 4 slices of bread and sprinkle some black pepper on top.
- Add lettuce and tomato slices, then the remaining bread slices, so you have 4 sandwiches.
- Cut each sandwich in half diagonally to serve.
This enticing egg salad recipe is made with onion and mustard as well as the mayonnaise, although you can make an adequate egg salad with simply eggs, mayonnaise and some salt and black pepper. If you do not want to use onion, you can swap it for celery instead. This colorful sandwich features lettuce and tomatoes as well as the egg salad, to make it look more tempting and add extra flavors and nutrients. Whether you are making this for the kids or for other grownups, they are sure to agree it is the best egg salad recipe of all.
