This is my go-to recipe for Egg Salad sandwiches. You can eat this all by itself in a bowl, on a sandwich, or as a wrap.

Try it with English Muffins, Bagels, or on a Sub Bun with lettuce and maybe some tomato slices or cucumber or a croissant. This is one of the sandwiches I use for a sandwich Platter along with Chicken/Turkey and Ham.

Best Eggs

The best eggs for flavor are always going to be your free-range eggs. These eggs will taste far better than store-bought and usually have an orange yolk instead of yellow. However, these are sometimes difficult to peel.

For Egg Salad you want to use older eggs, if using free-range eggs. With store-bought eggs, you don’t usually run into any issues with peeling.

How to Boil Eggs

Bring a pot of water to boil and then gently place the eggs in. Boil for 30 seconds. Cover the pot and reduce heat to low. The water should maintain a gentle simmer. Continue to cook for 11 minutes.

Remove the eggs and immediately place them in a bowl of Ice water for 15 minutes.

Peel eggs under cool running water. This helps to lift the membrane and can make peeling eggs a lot easier – especially if you have Fresh Farm Eggs which are hard to peel.

Another method that I quite like is 5 Minute Boil, 5 Minute Rest, 5 Minute Cold Bath.

How to Steam Eggs

Add 1 inch of water to a pot and bring to boil. Add Eggs to the steamer basket and place over the pot. Cover and continue to cook. 6 minutes for soft boil and 12 minutes for hard-boiled.

Immediately place eggs in ice water for 15 minutes before peeling under cold running water.

Double Decker Egg Salad Sandwich

Make the sandwich as you normally would then on top place a Chicken Salad, Ham, Deviled Ham, or Corned Beef Spread and another Bread Slice for a Double Decker Sandwich. These are seriously good and filling.
