World’s easiest egg salad

When my husband and I were first married, he requested an egg salad sandwich one night for dinner. Never having made egg salad, I began searching for a recipe. “No,” he explained. “Make it like my mama does. Here, I’ll show you.” I sat back and watched as he boiled and peeled eggs. He then put the peeled hardboiled eggs in the middle of a plate and squeezed a pile of butter on top of them.


Next, he put a spoonful of mayonnaise on top of the eggs and butter. He then used his spoon to mash the eggs and mix it all together.

The result? Some really yummy, really simple egg salad.


I enjoy this served hot on sandwich bread, but it’s just as good by itself. Enjoy! 🙂
