Egg Salad Sandwich


It’s only Tuesday, but I already think about the weekend. One of the reasons I like weekends is because we can have time to have a slow breakfast. Usually, we eat sandwiches (open sandwiches, only now I realised that in English a sandwich is by default closed, when in Polish it’s always an open sandwich) and soft-boiled eggs, or poached eggs and tomato salad. I love this morning, weekend routine, but sometimes I need to break it and do something slightly different, but not too different. Even though the weekend means we have more time, but easy breakfast recipes are always welcome. The easiest way to upgrade the breakfast is to make a homemade spread. I already showed you smoked mackerel spread and tuna, egg and avocado spread, but let’s go back to basics, at the very beginning there was egg salad. One of easiest spreads and it has mayo, did I mentioned I love mayonnaise?

Egg Salad Sandwich

Makes 4 small sandwiches


  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp French mustard
  • 1/4 onion (or a few spring onion stalks), chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 slices of bread (4 if you make an open sandwich)


In a small bowl stir together eggs, mayonnaise, mustard and onions.
Season it well with salt and pepper. I like to season my salad also with winter savory (Pol. czubrica), it’s a great spice that goes well with eggs, or sometimes I sprinkle it with smoked paprika.
Stir until everything is well combined.
To assemble a sandwich spread a thick layer of the salad on a slice of bread and press another slice on top.

  1. I was just in a store today and saw an eggs salad which triggered my thoughts; that I LOVE eggs salad but I seldom make it…. and there was your post, how appropriate! I am making it over the weekend. thank you.


    • Hi Joanna,
      I don’t make it too often, but it is such a nice, simple idea, actually all the spreads are great way of introducing something different to breakfast menu and they are so much better than the bought ones. I hope you will like it. Have a great weekend.


    • Hi Monika. It’s nice to hear that somebody enjoys my scribbles.
      I always forget such a treat good potato salad can be, and it’s so easy to make, so thank you for reminding me that too 🙂


  2. Hi Magda
    I made this for my fiancé and I today I have to say it was delicious as I was hesitant about eating egg salad and not big fan of raw onions but they worked. We also added a tablespoon of sweet relish. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
