Easy Egg Salad

Fast, easy and delicious. An egg salad to use anywhere, anytime.

My kids are back at school.

Let’s just let this sink in…

The kids have gone back to school.

I vacuumed my rug without screams of “Hoover Monster!” echoing in my ears. Afterwards, I cleaned and organised my mess of a washroom without needing to accommodate any unhelpful help.

I made a start on my Teach English as a Foreign Language Course, which will, hopefully, be my new career in a few months.

I went to a shop, and very leisurely browsed the offerings. I didn’t have to divert to the chocolate section due to “Chocolate, Mummy!”. I didn’t have to hustle outside before a tantrum entered into full swing. I didn’t have to fight on the front lines of an epic battle to pick and choose what I needed. I got what I desired for my Easy Egg Salad and nothing more.

I made this for my husband, so he had a keto lunch to take to work and shift those extra ‘lock-down’ pounds, but it’s paleo-ish as well. The only non-paleo ingredient is the Dijon mustard, so it depends how strict you are.

Now, I am wondering whether I can go and get the kids back home a bit early from the after-school club because I am missing them. In fact, I think I will.

  • 8 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup Easy Homemade Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill


To hard boil the Eggs

  • Place the eggs in a pan and cover them with water.
  • Place the pan on the hob, turn the hob up to the highest heat.
  • When the water is boiling. Set a timer for 6 mins.
  • When the time is done take the pan off the hob, pour out the hot water from the pan and replace with cold water until all the eggs are cool to the touch – you might have to replace the water a few times until this happens.

Making the Salad

  • Peel the eggs.
  • Add the Easy Homemade Mayonnaise (or the store-bought mayonnaise if you didn't feel like making it).
  • Add the Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, paprika and dill.
  • Use a fork to mix everything together, break up the boiled eggs into small pieces as you go.
  • Serve.
