Ingredients
 
 

  • 6 eggs, hard-cooked and peeled
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons celery, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard, Dijon-style or brown mustard work well
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • paprika, optional - for added color

Instructions
 

  • Place the eggs in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover them. Bring the water to a boil and boil for 9 minutes. Drain the hot water from the pot. Run cold water over eggs for 1 minute to stop the cooking process and cool the eggs.
  • Slice eggs in half. Scoop out yolks and place in a small bowl. Mix mayonnaise, finely chopped celery and pickle, 1/2 teaspoon mustard, salt and pepper in with the egg yolks. If it is at all dry, add a tiny bit of the pickle juice to thin it out.
  • Carefully spoon the yolk and mayonnaise mixture into the hollows in the egg whites. Sprinkle the tops with a touch of paprika for added color. Serve.
  • Makes 12 deviled egg halves.

To Make a Mustard Egg Salad Recipe:

Use exactly the same ingredients as above. Instead of slicing the hard cooked eggs, chop the whole boiled egg finely with a fork.

Add the remaining ingredients to the chopped egg and mix well. Serve on bread.

Tips for Easy Egg Salad Recipes:

  • The simplest egg salad recipe? Just chop the egg, add Miracle Whip (instead of the mayonnaise) to achieve the texture you want, then add a touch of pepper. Voila! An easy tasty recipe for egg salad sandwiches. The Miracle Whip has a bit of tang and you won’t really need lots of extra seasonings.
  • Try adding just a pinch of dry mustard instead of the already made mustard. It gives a subtle hint of taste.
  • Omit the mustard altogether. Add a bit of sweet pickle juice to the egg/ mayonnaise mixture for added sweetness.
  • All of these variations can be used to vary the basic deviled egg recipe. And of course they all make great egg salad sandwiches.
