Quick and Easy Egg Salad Recipe

My family and I love eggs and after Easter I always make Egg Salad with some of the hard boiled eggs. The best part is it is super easy, the kids can help, and it is delicious.
This year I had to make 2 batches because they ate it quicker than I expected.
(You will see some colors on our eggs such as pink, blue and green. Those colors are from where we dyed our eggs for Easter.)
We begin by getting out the number of hard boiled eggs that we will need. If you should need a larger amount just double the ingredients accordingly.
Then we begin to peel the shells off of them. This is where you can get your children to help. I have a trick. We tap it (with a little force) on our counter to break up the shell. I then place it in my hands and squeeze gently around the entire egg, so it will help loosen the egg shell. Then we begin to peel the egg shell off. If you are lucky enough it just might come off in bigger pieces.

After we get the entire shell removed, we run it under water to wash away any little pieces that may be stuck to the egg.
The next step is that we cut the eggs into chucks. We like medium size chunks but you can do any size that you would like.

The best part is you can get your children to help with this too. I use plastic knives, to ensure they do not get cut. They can then help cut the eggs up.
Once they are all cut you will place them into a large bowl.
You will then sprinkle on the salt and pepper.
Next you will add the mayo and mustard.
Then gently mix it all up and then we place it in the fridge to chill it. You can of course eat it right away if you choose. Once chilled we serve it up on a bun and enjoy.
Below are the ingredients and amounts you will need of each. Please remember if you need a larger amount you can double, triple the amount.
* 8 Hard Boiled Eggs
* 1/2 Cup of Mayonnaise
* Salt and Pepper to taste
* 1 Teaspoon of Mustard ( we use a spicy mustard)
We did not use the following but can be added if you prefer:

* 1/4 Cup of Green Onions

* 1/4 Teaspoon of Paprika
