In my opinion, perfect egg salad starts with perfect hard boiled eggs. This is how I make mine:
Place your eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water starts boiling, cover the pot and turn off the heat and set the timer for 15 minutes.
When time is up, drain the water from the pan and run cold water over the eggs to stop the cooking. I like to throw in a few ice cubes. Once your eggs are cool, you can peel them and chop them up for egg salad.
If you’re a fan of egg salad, I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
