How to make egg salad

Sometimes, old classics simply reign supreme, and this less is more approach is just the one Laura Sampson, who blogs and shares recipes at Little House Big Alaska, has taken in developing a basic egg salad recipe anyone can throw together with a few spare minutes and fewer than six ingredients. Sure, the Alaska native told Mashed there are a few ways to spice up this easy egg salad, but if you have a hankering for a lunch like your mom used to make, this bare bones yet totally delicious and satisfying dish will be right up your alley.

We asked Sampson when she likes to make her egg salad, and as she told us about her family, “We make a lot of egg dishes starting about now [in late January] because that’s when our hens start laying heavily.” It’s a good plan, seeing as she also told us, “We do our best to keep up with them because they lay eight to ten eggs a day!”

Even if you don’t raise hens, who hasn’t bought a few too many eggs, or just plain felt like sinking their teeth into doughy bread and creamy egg salad? Yup, us too!

Gather a few ingredients for this egg salad recipe

How to make egg salad

We are into any egg salad recipe that comes together without a trip to the store — or an Instacart order — and with fewer ingredients than it takes to make a ham and cheese sandwich! You will only need hard boiled eggs, mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper to master Sampson’s basic egg salad.

Of course, we wondered if someone who uses so many eggs had any tricks up her sleeve for hard boiling them to perfection. Sampson told Mashed, “If we’re using fresh eggs, I like to let them age a week or two since really fresh eggs don’t peel easily.” Who knew? She also offered this tip: “When I’m cooking hard-boiled eggs, I like to put them in a pan covered with cold water, bring them to a boil, then turn them off and let them sit covered for 12 minutes before rinsing them in cold water and peeling them.”

Peel and mash your eggs for this egg salad recipe

How to make egg salad

After you have mastered hard boiling your eggs, the first step to pulling off this basic yet blissful egg salad recipe is to go ahead and perform a much-dreaded task — peeling all those eggs! The good news is that Sampson also has a little tip to share with home cooks when it comes to getting the shell to come off the egg more manageably. “Use older eggs,” she advises Mashed, adding, “If the eggs are proving hard to peel, sometimes peeling them under running water makes the job easier.” Another tried-and-true trick is to add a bit of vinegar to your hard boiled eggs to make peeling off the shell a less aggravating chore.

Once your eggs are de-shelled, you will place them in a bowl and get to mashing them with a fork, creating chunks that are larger or smaller, depending on your preference.

Combine your other ingredients with the mashed eggs for this egg salad recipe

How to make egg salad

To your mashed eggs, you will simply add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper to make this egg salad recipe — how easy is cleanup going to be after this recipe is done? On that note, one word to the wise: Avoid putting egg shells down your kitchen sink drain. Not only can they create clogs, but the membranes can do damage to your garbage disposal.

Meanwhile, after adding the other ingredients to the eggs, you will stir combine. And now comes the best part: the tasting! Sampson recommends adding more salt and pepper to taste. Speaking of taste, we couldn’t help but wonder, um, what if you don’t care for mayo? Sampson told Mashed that luckily, there is a suitable substitute non-mayo fans can turn to, noting, “You could absolutely try using Greek yogurt.”

Serve your egg salad recipe

How to make egg salad

We are so not mad at a simple recipe like Sampson’s classic, just-the-basics egg salad recipe. But we wanted to know if she had any tips she could share for spicing things up a bit if someone so desired. And guess what? It turns out her family is full of spice lovers as well, with Sampson telling Mashed, “We love sriracha in this recipe!” If this isn’t quite your cup of tea, she suggests, “You can also add bacon bits, pickle relish, dill pickle relish, more salt, Dijon mustard, and so much more to the recipe!”

Once you have customized your egg salad to your taste, Sampson recommends serve it on simple, soft white bread or wrapping it up in tortillas. This dish also works well served with crackers or pita chips as a dip, say, for a quickie appetizer, or even for lunch. Or why not simply scoop some egg salad on lettuce for a satisfying salad?

How to make egg salad

One of my favorite things to make, especially on the weekend, is tuna & egg salad. It’s really hearty and makes enough for 4-6 sandwiches. Perfect on the weekend when everyone is busy running around.

What Kind of Tuna for Tuna Egg Salad?

  • Solid white tuna packed in water – Albacore tuna in larger pieces or chunks
  • Chunk white tuna packed water – Albacore tuna in smaller, flakier
  • Light tuna packed in water – A mix of Yellowfin or Skipjack tuna, darker in color

I like to use solid white albacore tuna packed in water. I keep a couple of cans on hand in the pantry so this can easily be made at a moment’s notice.

Many people are concerned about the sustainability of tuna. Here’s a great shopping guide from Greenpeace rating canned tuna sold in stores.

Tuna, eggs, and mayonnaise are the basic ingredients. You can add in all kinds of vegetables or just leave it as is for a nice low carb lunch. Or use it as a spread on your favorite bread or sandwich roll.

Yes, in fact here are just some of the health benefits:

  • Low carb

  • Provide selenium and vitamin B12

How to make egg salad

Most of the time I toast a nice multi-grain bread and make a tuna egg sandwich for lunch.

However, if I’m really feeling decadent, I’ll make a tuna melt by splitting a bagel in a half and toasting it. Then you spread on the tuna egg salad, topped each bagel half with a piece of provolone cheese. Then stick them under the broiler until the cheese is all melted and gooey.

Different Ways to Eat Tuna Salad with Eggs

  • On a bed of lettuce
  • On toasted bread
  • As an open-faced tuna melts (perfect with bagels and cheese melted on top)
  • A scoop with crackers – I love Trader Joe’s Crispbreads. Super crunchy and a good source of fiber.

Tuna egg salad add-in options:

  • Chopped up pickles – I prefer dill but sweet work just as well
  • Finely diced onions
  • Chopped celery – for added crunch
  • Diced herbs – dill, basil, tarragon, chives – whatever you prefer
  • Peppers – sweet, hot, flakes even a shot of hot sauce for you heat lovers.
  • Switch the mayo with yogurt or that sweeter brand if you like it.

Most of the time I leave it as is but I do enjoy a few crunchy dill snacking pickles on the side.

So, here it is! A super simple, super versatile, and super, super delicious keto egg salad recipe. You might have made a similar version in the past, but I just had to share mine.

Classic Egg Salad Recipe FAQs

Is egg salad keto friendly?

Yes, most egg salads are naturally keto-friendly, but it all depends on what goes into them.

This recipe has just 2 grams net carbs per serving, which I think makes it the best classic egg salad!

Are egg salad sandwiches healthy?

There are many different types of egg salad sandwiches and they span the “healthy” spectrum. If you are trying to reduce carbs or even just refined flours, wheat bread is not the best choice.

Instead, try swapping your white bread for my keto white bread recipe. It’s fluffy but made with nutritious ingredients. (See more ideas for how to serve egg salad below!)

Why does egg salad get runny?

Sometimes, egg salad gets a little runny after the veggies release moisture and it warms up a bit if it’s sitting on the counter. To thicken it back up, simply refrigerate and/or stir in an additional hard boiled egg.

How to make egg salad

I think the simplest dishes are often the hardest to get right, and egg salad is a perfect example. Most egg salads are boring, bland, mayo-laden affairs. But when made properly, egg salad can be so delicious! For starters, it’s important to begin with properly cooked hard-boiled eggs; the whites should be tender and the yolks creamy. And then you have to really amp up the seasoning.

Mayonnaise is a must for creaminess (and be sure to use a good one) but you also need a squeeze of lemon, a spoonful of Dijon mustard, and a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce to brighten the flavor. Celery and fresh parsley add crunch and color. And, finally, scallions add a lovely, subtle onion flavor. The result is an egg salad that’s creamy and rich, yet also vibrant and fresh.

How To Make Classic Egg Salad

How to make egg salad

Begin by hard boiling the eggs. Place the eggs in a saucepan in a single layer, and fill the pan with enough cold water so that it covers the eggs by about an inch. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat, then remove the pan from the heat, cover, and let stand for 10 minutes.

How to make egg salad

Carefully pour out the hot water; place the pan in the sink and run cold water over the eggs until the pan is lukewarm, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and refill with cold water; let stand until the eggs are room temperature, about 10 minutes.

How to make egg salad

Gently crack the eggs all over and peel under running water. Then dry the eggs and chop into 1/4-inch pieces.

How to make egg salad

Meanwhile, finely chop the herbs, celery, and scallions.

How to make egg salad

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and sugar.

How to make egg salad

Add the chopped eggs, celery, scallions, and parsley.

How to make egg salad

Using a rubber spatula, fold to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary, then serve or refrigerate until ready to use.

How to make egg salad

If you refrigerate the egg salad, be sure to taste it again before serving and adjust the seasoning; I find the flavors mellow out a bit after some time in the fridge.

Old Fashioned Egg Salad Recipe

This recipe takes the basic egg salad recipe up a few notches. There is mayonnaise, mustard, green onion, paprika and salt and pepper mixed together into perfection.

One of the memories I have of my grandmother is her packing lunch for our annual road trip to the Jersey shore. We would rent a house big enough to accommodate our whole family and spend the week in Ocean City, New Jersey.

My grandmother would fill her big blue cooler with sandwiches wrapped in waxed paper, assorted fruits and a big batch of her famous brownies. Nestled next to the cooler in the trunk of the car would be her plaid drink cooler filled with iced tea.

Every summer would be the same. We’d stop at a rest area along the way, unpack the cooler and eat at a picnic table somewhere between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. It was a lot like the scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation (minus the dog mishap).

How to make egg salad

There would always be a variety of sandwiches – one of which was egg salad. As a kid it was not my favorite. I would always go for the balony and cheese but as an adult…it would have been my first choice!

I still think of my grandmother every time I make egg salad. It’s one of those recipes that reminds me of her and makes me smile. We still go to the Jersey Shore every year for vacation.

Every time we pass a rest area along the way, I think of those childhood trips. The memories are priceless.

Gyeran Jjim

You can create this Korean fluffy egg banchan for a Korean barbecue meal at home or for the centerpiece of a breakfast or lunch.

Make this egg dish for an easy on-the-go breakfast. It’s packed with veggies and can be stored in the fridge for the week. Eat it hot or cold, depending on how much time you have.

Chinese Steamed Eggs

These custardy, absurdly supple steamed eggs might seem intimidating, but they are most definitely not. We added a couple of extra steps to make them absolutely foolproof: First, covering the eggs with foil guarantees that you won’t get large pools of water in your ramekins; secondly, and allowing the eggs to gently finish cooking in the steamer after the initial cooking time ensures perfectly just-set eggs every time.

Monte Cristo Omelet Sandwich

If you are a fan of Monte Cristos, you’ll love this riff on the popular Indian street food egg sandwich. It’s every bit as crisp on the outside, ooey-gooey on the inside and dusted all over with confectioners’ sugar. A square-shaped bread is ideal: It enables neater folding of the omelet. You will also want to use a nonstick skillet that is at least ten inches in diameter — the omelet won’t fit in a smaller pan.

Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon

For an elegant breakfast in a flash, Rachael Ray folds smoked salmon into her six-minute scrambled eggs. Crisp, fresh chives add bright color and a subtle onion flavor.

No-Worry Poached Eggs

Poaching eggs can give even the most experienced cook anxiety. Will the eggs stick to the bottom of the pot? Will I break a yolk? Will they all run together? How can I tell when they are done? On top of it all, because it takes a little bit of time to gently crack each egg and lower it into the simmering water, they aren’t always done at the same time. With all this in mind, we set out to crack (ha!) the code. By putting the eggs in before the hot water, they hold their shape and cook at the same time. This method works as well for 2 eggs as it does for 8, so if you are thinking of making eggs benedict for the fam this weekend, this will take the worry out.

Parmesan Eggs

Take your morning eggs to the next level by nestling them in a crispy halo of Parmesan. The eggs will cook nicely while the cheese becomes an irresistibly lacy cracker, what Italians call a “frico” or cheese crisp. These eggs are lovely eaten by themselves but even better when served on top of avocado toast, in a breakfast sandwich or perhaps on top of a bed of arugula–the possibilities are endlessly delicious!

This Homemade Egg Drop Soup Recipe is just like your favorite Chinese takeout soup. With just a few simple ingredients and about 10 minutes, you can have warm and comforting egg drop soup at home. This post has been sponsored by Eggland’s Best. All thoughts and reviews are my own

My family has a thing for Chinese takeout, we just can’t quit it. I do try to limit how often I order, though, because it’s not the healthiest dining option. A few years ago I tried making my favorite Chinese takeout entree, Egg Foo Young, and it was an incredible success— it’s not an authentic recipe, but it’s super delicious and easy to make! It also satisfies most of my takeout cravings!

That leads me to a new recipe that I made, inspired by another favorite Chinese takeout item— Egg Drop Soup.

I have no idea why it took me so long to try to make my own Egg Drop Soup because it’s the most basic recipe ever. I almost feel dumb ordering it out now that I know easy it is to prepare, and I actually think my version tastes better. Oh, and did I mention this is 10 Minute Egg Drop Soup!? Yes! It’s ready in only 10 minutes!

The great thing about homemade egg drop soup is that you can season the broth to taste before you drop the eggs in. For example, we’re big Sriracha fans, so we add a couple of drops to our broth (again, not authentic— but so good!). You can also make egg drop soup with corn, chicken, noodles, cabbage, and other veggies or additional spices. it’s totally customizable!

Can Egg Drop Soup Be Frozen?

Technically, yes, egg drop soup can be frozen— but I wouldn’t recommend it after cooking as the eggs can get rubbery. Instead, make and freeze the egg drop soup broth and then add fresh eggs after it has thawed on the stovetop.

Is Egg Drop Soup Keto?

This egg drop soup recipe is not keto as written. For keto egg drop soup, you would have to omit the cornstarch, which thickens the soup. Flavorwise, egg drop soup should taste the same with or without cornstarch.

Is Egg Drop Soup Healthy?

Good news! Egg drop soup is healthy and low in fat and calories per 1 cup portion size. If you’re watching your salt intake, choose a low-sodium chicken broth and omit garlic salt, or substitute with garlic powder.
