Magnolia Egg Salad Sandwich

Even though it’s springtime, egg salad sandwich recipes are actually something I enjoy all year long. We tend to think, let’s make it after Easter, with all the leftover eggs, but eggs are so easy to boil and keep on hand (love a soft boiled egg for a snack). This recipe is super easy, and delicious. And, it reminds me a lot of my childhood.

Easy Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

How do you make egg salad sandwiches?

Start off with a good method of boiling the eggs. My method is tried and true and never disappoints.

  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Gently place the eggs, one by one with a spoon, to the bottom of the pan. Bring back to a boil and set the timer for 10 minutes.
  2. Boil the eggs for 10 minutes; pour out the water and replace with cold water. Do this 2-3 times. Let stand until completely cool. Under running cold water, peel the eggs (the peel will come off perfectly).
  3. Chop the eggs and set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mayonnaise, pickle, onion, mustard, salt and pepper.
  5. Add eggs to the mayonnaise mixture and gently fold in. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
  7. To assemble, top bread with a generous amount of egg salad, lettuce and tomatoes. Either serve open-faced or top with a second slice of bread. Optional to skip the bread and make lettuce wraps!

Tips and substitutions

Mix the ingredients together, and I love Joanna’s spin of grating the onion. So tasty.

There’s just something about good old fashioned mayo, too, that seems to hold this recipe together. Give it a whirl and see what you think!

My friend Kristy and I are huge egg salad sandwich lovers, and the more more mustard, the better.

It’s an easy recipe, quite basic actually, and it makes me think of my trip to Downton Abbey  and these Downton Abbey Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches, a few years ago.

How do you serve an egg salad sandwich?

A sandwich is great as a sandwich with two slices of bread, of course, but it can also be served open-faced, in a lettuce wrap, as a appetizer on bruschetta, or even spooned onto endive. YUM! I love it in butterleaf lettuce leaves.
