Old Fashion Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

 When I was on Summer break, as a kid, we loved having different sandwiches for lunch. Hands down my personal pick was always Egg salad. It’s one of those things that usually people are pretty picky about though. I to this day think my Mother has the best hands down but maybe I am biased.

When we had the hens popping out 4 eggs daily this was my go-to recipe to get them used up quickly! Boy, do I miss having chickens! When we build our cabin in the woods you best believe I will have another chicken coop in my garden!

 What you will need:

12 Eggs (boiled)

1/2 Miracle Whip (some use mayonnaise but I prefer this)

Mustard, to taste

Salt & pepper, to taste

Small onion, diced

 Mix all of the ingredients together. Taste and add stuff according to your taste buds. I added quite a bit of pepper this time around to off set the VERY ripe onion I used.

 I like to refrigerate overnight before I use this mixture. This is a completely optional step. The mixture should be ready to use in a bout an hour or so.

Toast your bread, spread the mixture on and enjoy!!

    egg salad was one of my childhood favorites too, and I still enjoy it even though I haven't made it in a while. I'm going to give this a try!

    Such a classic sandwich! I love that you add onions – one of my *favorite* ways to eat egg salad! And the toasted bread gives it such a great, crunchy texture! Delicious!

    I find chickens slightly terrifying but love fresh eggs. Some day I would love to get over it and have my own fresh eggs/chickens like you! The flavor is so good. Egg salad is a classic and so nice and easy!

    I want to get chickens! Hubby doesn't want to extra responsibility, but I totally want the extra egg salad!

    Nothing better then a egg salad sandwich. We all love it in my house. This recipe sounds a bit different from what I make, so I will give it a try. Looks delicious.
