Egg salad

egg salad
Making egg salad is easy. It makes a great sandwich. Be sure to first read how to make hard boiled eggs if you don't already know how. After you peel the eggs and put them in a bowl, all you do is add some mayonnaise and mix it together. Salt, and even a little pepper taste good on them. Egg salad tastes good on white bread. I also have it on a roll sometimes. One to two eggs should be enough for each person.

Hard boiled eggs

Hard boiled eggs are great for lunch. I have two shown in the picture. Two eggs is usually the right amount for each person, but I sometimes have just one. They are very easy to make. Fill a small pot with cold water. Make sure the tops of the eggs are covered with water. You don't need any more water in the pot than that. Boil them on high on the stove until the water starts bubbling. Then put them on low heat for about 20 minutes. I use #3 on my stove. Twenty minutes is the approximate time. If you like them harder, then you can cook them longer. It is important you cook them enough though. If you take them off sooner, the eggs will be too soft, making it hard to peal the shells off later on. Be sure to run the eggs a little under cold water before you peel them, because the shells are very hot. I have them here already cut. You can add a little salt to them when they are done. You can also make egg salad from hard boiled eggs.

Cheese with mustard on toast

cheese with mustard on toast
A simple sandwich to make for any time of the day or night. Cheese goes well with mustard. It is a much tastier sandwich on toast than just plain white bread.
