My Favorite Egg Salad

I really think that a bowl of egg salad makes the perfect brunch, but it is also a nice upgrade to any sandwich. Everyone has a favorite salad, and this is mine. I know I did not invent the egg salad idea. BUT! Eggs with cream cheese?! You must try!

How To Make Egg Salad?

Step 1: Cook the eggs. Put eggs in a pan and cover them with cold water. Bring to a boil, put a lid on the pan and turn off the heat. Let eggs stand for 13 minutes. Place them in a bowl of ice water until they are cool. Crack all over and peel the eggs in the ice water.

Step 2: Chop the eggs. There are many ways to chop eggs when you’re making egg salad. You can use a knife, a grater, or dedicated gadgets.

Step 3: Mix Ingredients. Gently mix all ingredients together, and season with pepper to taste.

How Long Does Egg Salad Last?

Egg salad will last 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator. Egg salad should not be left out at room temperature for more than 1-2 hours.
