Egg Salad

I went for many, many, many years hating egg salad.

One day I woke up...and...well, I liked it.

Makes me feel like a classic case of parenting book advice "it can take 200+ times of tasting an item for a child to develop a taste for it".

Yeah, that's me.

Truly, it never occurred to me to "write down" a recipe for my egg salad! The girl child wanted some one day....and just stood there staring at me.
When I asked what she was waiting for, I got a big "well, either you have to make it for me, or at least tell me what goes in it!"

That's when light dawned. What seems so everyday and simple to's a mystery to others!

3 Hard boiled eggs (peeled)
1 ½ Tbsp mayonnaise
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Chop up eggs
2. Add mayo, salt, and pepper
3. Mash egg with fork while mixing


Come party with me HERE!


  1. I know this is a simple dish to prepare, but when I saw this at My Flagstaff Home, it reminded me how much I love it and I haven't made it in years. Thank you.

  4. Although I will probably always hate egg salad, due to my hatred of eggs, my hubby LOVES egg salad! I haven't made it in a while, so I think I'll surrpise him this week for his lunch! Thanks for the recipe and idea! and for linking up with us over at Country Fair Blog Party, I can't wait to have you join us in December again!

  8. I think a lot of recipes are like that - simple to some, but hard to others. My parents favorite quantity of something to add to a recipe is usually "until it looks right" - great if you know, but not so helpful if you don't. :) Thanks for sharing with us on Five Friday Finds! :)

    1. OMGosh! I do that to the girl child ALL THE TIME! "just until it looks right, ok?"
      I get the eye roll every time LOL
