Oddly enough, in the three years, I’ve been writing this blog, I have yet to post a recipe for one of my favorite egg concoctions: egg salad. I’m not sure why, as it’s an easy-to-make, affordable dish that brings back fond childhood memories (and you all know I’ve been on my reverting-to-childhood kick recently). And because I make my own mayo from scratch & add enough flavoring, it’s not the usual bland egg salad so many folks have fallen victim to. I guess I just figured it was too simple and not something you guys would want to read about.
That is until I saw the feedback from yesterday’s blog post about Day 2.
Had I known folks would love the looks of this simple little sandwich (which I snapped a picture of with my phone at work, lol), I would have bothered to take a proper photo & shown off my homemade mayo, too! But since I know some of you want to make this right away, I won’t make you wait forever.
For now, here’s the recipe for my version of an egg salad sandwich: easy, yet reminiscent of perfectly prepared deviled eggs. To keep things simple, I’ve decided to save the recipe for the homemade mayonnaise for a separate post because it’s just that good (it’s my grandma’s recipe; how could it be anything BUT amazing?). But for Hunger Challenge purposes, please note that using jarred mayonnaise will definitely increase the cost of this sandwich, so if you can spare the eggs & oil to make your own, you’ll be much better off! Let’s check out the recipe.
Details Recipe Information
* For those of you who have trouble making the perfect hard-boiled egg, check out Elise’s fool-proof method on Simply Recipes. If I didn’t already have my own method down, I would totally use this one!
** For truly awesome flavor (and if you’re not on the Hunger Challenge), swap out the regular salt for some garlic salt. The difference is phenomenal!
*** (Final note, I promise) If you want to lighten things up a bit without completely going yolk-free, use one of the hard-boiled eggs and just the egg white of the second egg. Save the other hard-boiled yolk as a tasty little salad topper for a later meal.
