Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

Yes, you are seeing it correctly; I am posting a recipe for egg salad sandwiches! These sandwiches have been around nearly forever. Many of you may not have had an egg salad sandwich in years. Well, it’s time to change that! The secret to that perfect egg salad sandwich is getting the mustard/mayo ratio just right. Some people like more mayo some don’t. I would suggest slowly adding the mayo and mustard to fit your tastes. You can either use yellow mustard or Dijon mustard. Some recipes use dried dill but with this recipe, I am going with relish. I feel the relish gives the sandwich great flavor. For condiments, a crisp piece of lettuce tops the sandwich off nicely. This recipe is great for lunches and picnics. Enjoy.

Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

  • Author: Bobby


  • 6 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon relish
  • pepper (to taste, optional)
  • lettuce (optional)
  • 6 slices whole wheat bread




  1. Too hard boil eggs – Gently place eggs into a single layer in a saucepan. Add just enough water to cover the eggs completely.
  2. Put on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Just as the water reaches a rapid boil remove from heat and tightly cover with a lid. Let the pan sit for 17 minutes. Transfer eggs into a bowl with cold water. Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes and peel.
  3. Finely chop hard boiled eggs.
  4. Place chopped eggs in a medium bowl. Mix in mayo, 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix in mustard, relish, and pepper.
  5. Put egg salad onto bread slices, top with lettuce.

  2. Simple and delicious! If I have onion and celery on hand I chop up some of those and toss them in as well. Now I have a craving….

  3. I am about to make this, and I hope it turns out yummy! Be back soon with results. I need quick/easy/cheap lunches and this fits the bill. :o)


  4. Just curious if you use sweet relish or dill relish? I would assume dill, but I’m not a sweet relish kind of person anyway.

  5. You should one day post how a recipe of how to take such wonderful pictures.

    Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  6. Amazing! I made this last night, though I did equal parts of mayo/mustard (a little less mayo- not a big fan), and I added paprika. Yummy, filling lunch. Thanks for sharing!

  7. My mother used to make this for Sunday night suppers. In the winter, she would serve it open faced, put a slice of cheese on top and broil it until the cheese started to melt and brown. Yum!!!
    It has been years since I had one of those. She called it her “deviled egg sandwich”.

  8. I like the way you put up preparation pics along with the final outcome pic. It makes understanding the recipe, easier.

  9. Never was a fan of the egg salad sandwich, but my boyfriend seems to have an obsession with having them for lunch so i’ll have to pass it along. Thanks!

  10. thank you for the recipe!
    One of the difficulties I face when making egg sandwich is how to not overcook the eggs. I don’t want the yolk to turn light yellow (dry, flaky texture)…your method of letting the egg sit in the hot water is great! I tried it today and got the yolk I wanted…soft and smooth 🙂

  11. WOW!!! We used your recipe for our Home Economics.My teacher was relieved by us.We told her that the sandwich was made by another person.Thank you for the recipe.Because of you we had the highest grade
