There are a lot of ways to cut up a hard boiled egg. You can just use a knife to chop the cooked egg. Or you can also mash the cooked egg with a fork. An egg slicer which is shown in the photo below, makes perfect slices for sandwiches or for a garnish. You can also use the slicer to slice the egg in both directions and end up with chopped eggs for salad and dip.
If you are going to make egg salad sandwiches, three eggs will be enough for two sandwiches.
Celery and/or green olives are traditional “add-in”s to egg salad.
Be sure to mince the celery (cut it into really small bits) when you are adding it to a salad. Cut the celery length wise into thin strips, and then cut the strips into very small pieces.
Also be sure to slice the olives.
Crispy chopped bacon can add an extra zing to the taste and texture. A dash of curry powder is fantastic when you serve the salad as a dip with crackers and cut up vegetables.
Add a dash of Salt and Pepper
Add about 2 T. of mayonnaise, and give it a stir.
That’s it! The egg salad is all made, now just pick your favorite bread and you’ve got yourself a great sandwich!
