  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1-2 celery sticks
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • ¼ tsp. dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lettuce

Bread in toaster oven and another slice is sitting on a white plate

  • Lightly toast the sandwich bread.

Chopped egg on plate and sliced celery in bowl

  • If you haven’t yet removed the shell from your hard-boiled eggs, do so now. Dice the celery and chop the hard-boiled eggs. Place in a bowl.

Celery and eggs in bowl topped with a dollop of mayo. Side bowls filled with paprika, dry mustard, salt, and pepper.

  • Add 1 tbsp. of mayonnaise to the bowl, along with ¼ tsp. paprika, ¼ tsp. dry mustard, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Mixed egg salad in bowl. Left over spices to the side.

  • Mix all ingredients together with a fork.

One slice of toasted bread with egg salad on top, and another slice with lettuce on top.

  • Once mixed, scoop the egg salad onto one of the toasted bread slices, top with lettuce, and then add the top piece of bread.

Finished product. Sliced egg salad sandwich.

  • Enjoy!

Note: For a healthier egg salad sandwich, swap half an avocado for the mayo and use whole wheat bread instead of white.
