What is the Lunch of Champions you ask? Egg Salad on Wheat with Grippo’s BBQ Chips, of course! Nothing better than this (except maybe bologna on wheat with a big, fresh tomato slice and mayo).
My brother raises chickens for laying and does his best to keep me in stock with eggs. It is amazing how much better fresh eggs really are. They taste and look richer. The yolk is thicker, yellower, and tastier. Want proof? Make German chocolate cake icing with fresh eggs and marvel at the distinct difference.
Eggs salad is like potato salad- the more simple, the better.
Egg Salad (For one or two)
- 2 eggs (large for two, small for one serving)
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1/4 tsp mustard
- Salt and pepper to taste
Boil the eggs until hard boiled. Remove from heat and immediately cool with cold water. Crack the eggs and remove the shells. Shells remove better when the eggs are less fresh. (Deviled eggs should NEVER be made with fresh eggs). With fork tines, mash the eggs up. Stir in the mayo, mustard, salt, and pepper. Spread on wheat bread and enjoy!!!

You are on a tear with the picnic fare. I didn’t mean to rhyme. Looks great!
I never even noticed the picnic theme. Maybe it is subtle proof how much I am longing for summer!
You are right, there isn’t any better than a really fresh egg! Well, that is unless it is a really fresh egg from one of your own hens! I read somewhere that the eggs in the store can be up to four months old! EW?
Love egg salad! ~ Lynda
According to my grandmother, if an egg floats, it is bad. Good to know for those “homegrown” eggs.
Your grandmother was correct! Of course, around here they don’t last long enough for that to ever happen! I have even been known to go out at breakfast time and get them while still warm! 🙂
The best way! I wish I had my own chickens. Maybe one day.
