Deluxe Egg Salad

Deluxe Egg Salad


Spring is just around the corner and Easter is almost here.  My favorite way to use all those hard-boiled eggs is to make Deluxe Egg Salad.  I have tried many recipes and nothing compares to this one.  The added cream cheese takes it to the level of A-W-E-Some!!  (I just did an old cheerleading chant in my head…..gotta love that!)


Now, I’m going to give you a tip.  Take the time to dice up two baby dill pickles rather than using relish.  It really does make a difference in the texture and taste.  Also, I slice my eggs in half and put the yolks in a bowl to mix with the other wet ingredients and I only chop the whites of the eggs.  The yolks tend to crumble and just stick to my knife and make things difficult… I changed up the process to make it easier on myself.  You.Are.Welcome 🙂

Deluxe Egg Salad


You can serve these on toast, on bread, in a tortilla, on a roll, or by the spoonful.  I LOVE LOVE having egg salad with a leaf of butter lettuce on a croissant.  WOAH!  Make these for lunch or dinner to serve with soup but don’t forget that eggs are a breakfast staple so get crazy and have one for breakfast.
