- 2 Hard Boiled Eggs (1)
- 1 tbsp Mayo
- 1 tsp Yellow Mustard
- 1 tsp chopped Celery (2)
- Fill a pot of water with an inch of water. Bring to a boil.
- Add a metal steamer basket and your eggs, cover, and drop heat to medium. (3)
- Cook eggs for 10 minutes, then remove into a bowl with ice and water.
- Let chill for 5-10 minutes, then peel the eggs. (4)
- Separate yolks from the whites. Chop the whites to desired thickness, and chop the celery into small pieces.
- In a bowl, smash the egg yolks with the back of a spoon. Add the mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.
- Add the chopped egg whites and celery and mix. Taste for flavor, if you need to add a little more salt and pepper now is the time.
- Serve on a piece of toast as an open faced sandwich with a sprinkle of paprika.
I made mine at home and use Kenji Lopez-Alt’s recipe. Here’s his quick video to show you how to whip it up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7kYiEB4ogY
- My eggs were closer to medium than hard boiled. It left for a yolk that was a little creamy, but not runny. You can cook your eggs to a full hard boil if you’d like.
- I like my celery chopped very small here. I like the crunch but don’t want big pieces.
- I prefer to steam my eggs, I’ve found it the most reliable way to cook them. If you don’t have a steamer basket you can cook them the traditional way.
- Peeling the eggs under a light stream of water from the sink has been the easiest way for me. It easily washes away the little shell bits, and also seems to help the peeling process.

Making this today. Never occurred to me to separate yolks from whites and mix. Thanks for the recipe Mitch. Learning so much from you!!!!!!
Thanks for reminding us of how simple and nutritious an egg salad sandwich is. Never even thought of using a steamer basket. I’ve learned a lot about cooking eggs from you, Mitch. And ribs. And brisket. And salads. ????
#71- this is an amazing side dish. We have had it at least three times, since you shared it. We love it and for O-Lineman, it has replaced potato salad for me when it’s time for BBQ.
The wife, pretty much keeps it in hand now.
Thank you CHAMP!!
Thanks for giving it a shot, glad you like it!
