I love Egg Salad!
Boiled eggs really are the perfect little sack: full of protein and good fats. (Plus they contain almost every essential vitamin and mineral our bodies need!) While I love my boiled eggs cut in half with just a bit of salt and pepper; Egg Salad has always been one of my favorite ways to use boiled eggs.
I was raised on Miracle Whip and sweet relish in my egg salad, (chicken salad too) but since I’ve been limiting my added sugars, I’ve had to come up with a new recipe using mayonnaise to enjoy my favorite egg salad.
Egg Salad Recipe (w/ a kick)
Actually, this is a pretty basic egg salad recipe: mayo, dill relish, a bit of mustard, salt and pepper, but what makes it so good and gives it that special “kick” is the addition of sriracha.
The addition of the sriracha really adds something to the flavor of the mayo/egg salad and makes the recipe oh-so-yummy. You definitely need to give it a try!
Of course, I’m not the only one in the family who loves boiled eggs- when my kiddos spot them in the fridge, they will not stay out of the eggs! (That’s a good thing I guess… Boiled eggs are definitely at the top of the list for healthy snacks. )
To keep up with our boiled egg obsession, I like to use my pressure cooker and hard cook about 18 eggs at a time.
Sounds like a lot, I know, but we will go through this amount of eggs in just a few days. (If you haven’t tried it, pressure cooking eggs is the way to go- they cook in about 6 minutes and peel like a dream. I think the pressure makes the egg more “compact”, so if you peel them while still warm, the eggshell just slides off.)
