How to Make Lunch Lady Egg Salad Sandwich

These sandwiches are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Peel hard-boiled eggs and finely chop. In a medium bowl, gently combine chopped eggs, onions, chopped celery, black pepper, salt, dry mustard, mayo, and sweet pickle relish until well blended. Toast bread slices. Top slices of bread with the egg salad mixture. Add lettuce and a tomato slice and enjoy!

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I cook my eggs in the Instant Pot. The instant pot makes perfect hard boiled eggs every time!
  • To cook the eggs on the stovetop: Place the eggs in a single layer in a heavy saucepan and cover with cold water by at least one inch. Add a teaspoon of salt. Leaving the pot uncovered, turn the heat to high. As soon as the water comes to a boil, turn off the heat and cover. After 10 minutes, remove the cover and run cold water over eggs for 1 minute.
  • Feel free to add some bacon, chives, or green onions to the egg salad mixture.
  • Can substitute Greek yogurt for some or all of the mayonnaise.
  • Store egg salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
    • It will keep 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
