Whats a good recipe for Egg Salad?
Egg Salad is great especially during the summer when served on whole grain bread with lettuce and tomato. You will need the following ingredients.
6 large fresh eggs
Bread and butter pickle relish
Medium sauce pan
Medium Mixing bowl
Start with six large eggs, and place in a medium sauce pan fill; with water until the top of the eggs are covered. Place on high heat until the water starts to boil. Once the water boils start a 15 minute timer to ensure eggs are cooked thoroughly
When the eggs have finished boiling, place the pan containing the eggs into the sink and run cold water in until the water around the eggs is cool. Drain off the water and shell the eggs. Doing it while the eggs are still warm will help the shells come off easily. Rinse the eggs to remove any remaining membrane or shell particles.
Place the eggs in a medium bowl and using a fork mash the eggs into small pieces less than 1/8"
Add 2 tablespoons of salad dressing (Mayonnaise or a substitute of your choosing) and mix well with the eggs
Now add 2 tablespoons of bread and butter pickle relish along with two tablespoons of the pickle juice, and mix well.
