There are many versions of egg salad - so I am going to give you the basic simple salad recipe plus a list of optional additional ingredients which you can add to customize the flavour to YOUR liking.

My family's favourite egg salad sandwich recipe is with ALL the options.


  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) real mayo
  • 2 little squirts mustard
  • 2 tsp (10 ml)diced chives or onions
  • salt & pepper to taste


1. Dice the hard boiled eggs & place in a bowl

2. Add the mayo, mustard & chives/onions

3. Add whatever other ingredients you choose

4. Mix well (I use a small potato masher because my family prefers their egg salad to be creamier, rather than chunky)

5. Spread on sandwich & top with lettuce (if desired)

Yield 4 thick sandwiches

Optional Ingredients

  • diced cooked bacon (or real bacon bits)
  • diced sweet peppers
  • diced celery - for crunchiness
  • all of the above
