Homemade egg salad

Singlemade: Homemade egg salad

During my latter college years, I worked a job in the university’s cafeteria. I must have made hundreds if not thousands of sandwiches. It was the best job ever: my colleagues were the sweetest ladies in the world and I was allowed to take leftovers home. I made a lot of people happy with free sandwiches and cake in those days :-p. One of the students’ favourite sandwiches – after the BLT and Martino of course – was egg salad. When Singlemade-tester Caroline asked me for a recipe for a good sandwich spread, I immediately thought of egg salad. It is ridiculously easy to make but incredibly delicious! Especially when you make it with homemade mayonnaise. It just so happens that there’s a delicious homemade mayonnaise recipe on Singlemade! :-p

Homemade egg salad
Instructions
Preparation: boiling the eggs
  1. Bring some water to a boil in a pot. As soon as it boils, add a pinch of salt and the eggs. Boil the eggs for 10 minutes. ** Use a kitchen timer! Then strain the water and leave the eggs to cool in some cold water.
  2. As soon as they’ve cooled, peel the eggs. Do it underwater to avoid getting pieces of eggshell in your salad.
The egg salad
  1. Squish the peeled eggs with a fork into a bowl or chop them with a large knife.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons of yogurt and season to taste with pepper and salt. Dice some chives and add them to taste.
Recipe Notes

Homemade mayonnaise will get you the best result, but store-bought mayonnaise works too.

** If you keep your eggs in the fridge, you’ll have to boil them a bit longer! If you boil some extra eggs you can make scotch eggs or tuna salad!

Stijn didn’t have any chives but does reckon it’d be a great addition. Carine concurs, she loved the chives as an extra touch. Her tip: serve on an artisanal baguette! Caroline suggests adding crispy bacon bits!
