egg salad sandwiches

Hello Spring!

Hello sunshine and 70 degree weather!

Hello bike rides and long walks...we have missed you. :)

My husband brought home two dozen farm fresh eggs a few days ago.

I guess the chickens are enjoying this weather too and are producing eggs like crazy!!

Anyway, I have been trying to think of things I can make with eggs and yesterday I made this:

Egg Salad Sandwiches

6 hard boiled eggs (peeled and chopped)
1/4 c. mayo
1/4 c. chopped dill pickles
1 tsp. honey mustard
1/2 tsp. sea salt
fresh ground pepper
paprika to taste

I don't like a lot of flavors fighting for dominance in my egg salad.  I generally like to keeps things simple which is usually a fight with Spencer who's motto is more is better!

This made a perfectly delicious sandwich that the whole family loved.

Question of the Day:
What should I do with all of the eggs?  Anyone have any good recipes?

  1. Mmm that looks delicious! I love farm fresh eggs--did yours come in all different colors (speckled, green, blue, brown)...I love when I find eggs in a rainbow of natural colors :)

    Maybe make bread pudding or a custard that calls for lots of eggs?!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  5. My hubby will thank you for this Egg Salad recipe!
    You're so lucky you have farm-fresh eggs nearby. Omelettes? Chocolate torte? Quiche? Those are my eggy ideas for this morning.
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend!!!!
