Egg Salad Recipe

      Since we have our own chickens, we have a LOT of eggs so we eat a lot of eggs too.  We have eggs for breakfast nearly every morning (scrambled, fried, poached, over easy or we make omelets).  We even freeze some of our eggs.  One way we love to have eggs for lunch is by having egg salad sandwiches (which are soooooo good).

Egg Salad
 12 boiled eggs
1 c. mayonnaise
2 T. brown mustard
2 T. dill pickle relish
1 T. parsley flakes
1 T. lemon juice
1 tsp. tarragon
1 Tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. celery powder
1/4 tsp. pepper

     Peel the eggs and chop them up into small pieces and place them in a large bowl.  Add the other ingredients and stir well.  Refrigerate one hour and then enjoy.  This is delicious by the spoonful, on a sandwich or served with crackers.  Nice & creamy too!
 So great to add in some homemade guacamole.

  4. Gotta try this! I love eggs,from my head down to my legs...lol

  5. What is brown mustard

    1. Glad you asked. Brown mustard has a higher concentration of brown mustard seeds, giving it a darker brown color and spicier taste. It's frequently used in Indian, Chinese and Japanese cuisines. We like brown mustard, for its spicy, robust flavor.

  6. My, this is a twist on egg mayo! For 40 years I've made mine with mayo, chopped cress and a little curry powder. Looks I'm ready for a seismic change! Looking forward to trying this soon, hugs x.
