There is sometimes that last minute panic that hits you before your party starts
"Did I make enough food?"
And after I made a dozen deviled eggs I was worried there wouldn't be enough. So just to be sure I boiled another dozen in case I needed to replenish...The other side of that coin is when you don't need them you have a dozen hard boiled eggs that you need to find something to do with.
Until a couple of years ago I never liked egg salad. I never saw a version that looked appetizing enough to try. When I was working at a bed and breakfast inn, the Chef made me try his recipe and he wouldn't take no for an answer. So I tried it. It had kick from dijon mustard, was flavored with just enough salt and didn't have too much mayonnaise. It was comfort food without a doubt.
So for the last week I've been enjoying egg salad for lunch. And no eggs were wasted in the making of this blog post.
12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 - 3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup dijon mustard
1 tbsp dill
salt and pepper to taste
Dice hard boiled eggs and add remaining ingredients. Perfect for easy lunches throughout the week.
