In my mind, egg salad is seriously underrated. What could be more satisfying than a still warm, creamy egg salad sandwich stuffed with pickles and fat slices of avocado? It works for breakfast, lunch or dinner and will leave you satisfied all day long.

Egg Salad

My ingredient list is simple: just hard-boiled eggs, real mayonnaise (no Miracle Whip here!), dry mustard, salt and pepper. I’m lucky enough to buy my eggs straight from a local farm, resulting in the utmost yellow and creamy yolks. If you have access to a farm, I suggest you do the same! You’ll be able to taste the difference, I promise you.

I serve my egg salad sandwiches with avocado, bread & butter pickles, lettuce and hot sauce. If you’ve never tried this combination, you’re missing out!

I hope you guys enjoy my favorite egg salad sandwich!
