This simple deli style egg salad requires no separating of eggs from yolks and gets its flavor from resting in the fridge before serving!
Eggs | Salt | White Pepper Brown Mustard | Whole Grain Mustard Paprika | Chives | Mayonnaise
Submerge eggs in 1 inch of boiling water. Cover, reduce heat to maintain a boil for 11 minutes. Add cool water to the pot, remove eggs, and peel immediately.
You're looking for egg yolks that are solid but still slightly dark golden and soft in the middle.
Use a cocktail muddler or potato masher to mash the hard boiled eggs.
Add mayo, both mustards, paprika, salt, and white pepper. Mash to combine.
Add the minced chives and stir them in with a spatula.
Chill the egg salad in the fridge for several hours before serving — this allows the flavors to meld, giving it that classic "deli" flavor!
Serve egg salad chilled. It will stay good in the fridge for 3-4 days.
Save any strong flavors like smoked paprika, dill, capers, etc. for garnishing so they don't overwhelming the egg salad.
