Enjoy your homemade Egg Salad Sandwich! It's a classic and versatile dish that's perfect for a quick lunch or a light dinner.
– 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped– 1/4 cup mayonnaise– 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard– 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion– 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives (or substitute with green onions)– Salt and black pepper to taste
Place eggs in a saucepan and cover them with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 10-12 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, chop the hard-boiled eggs into small pieces using a knife. Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, chopped red onion, and fresh chives.
Season the egg salad with salt and black pepper. Adjust the quantities according to your taste preferences.
Gently mix all the ingredients until well combined. Be careful not to overmix, as you want to maintain some texture in the egg salad.
Take slices of bread and place a generous amount of the egg salad on one slice. If desired, add lettuce leaves and tomato slices for extra freshness.
Place another slice of bread on top to create a sandwich.
If you prefer, you can cut the sandwich into halves or quarters for easier handling. Serve immediately.
Customize your egg salad sandwich with additional ingredients like a sprinkle of paprika, a dash of hot sauce, or a slice of cheese.
