The Easiest Egg Salad

I’m not a huge egg salad fan but the bag of cage free hard-cooked peeled eggs at Trader Joe’s really got me thinking, and then experimenting. Most of the trickiest work is done for you if buy the pre-cooked eggs – you’re not fighting with shells or looking at green-hued yolks, just the flawless beauties that these eggs are. I recommend cubing these eggs rather than mashing them.

Kid Tested! Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs from a bag of Trader Joe’s cage free hard-cooked peeled eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Nayonnaise or Trader Joe’s mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon Trader Joe’s Dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper (optional)
  • I head Trader Joe’s Bibb lettuce, washed, dried, and large ribs removed
  • 4 slices Trader Joe’s whole wheat bread, toasted

Preparation:

  1. Cube eggs by slicing each egg in four lengthwise, laying flat on cutting board and slicing again lengthwise into 3 strips, then rotate knife 90 degrees and cut to form cubes. Place mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper in small bowl and mix with a spoon until well combined. Add eggs and stir gently to coat.
  2. Assemble sandwiches by spooning ½ egg salad mixture onto a slice of bread, topping with 3 or 4 lettuce leaves, and another slice of bread. Cut in half and pack with a pickle.
