- 4 Egg - hard-cooked, cooled, peeled and coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- Oregano - optional to taste
- Salt - optional to taste
- Black pepper - optional to taste
- 8 slices Bread - white, whole wheat, brown or multigrain
- Put the eggs in a medium saucepan and pour water till it covers the eggs. Bring it to boil over high heat and once boiling, reduce the heat and cook for 12 minutes on medium heat (12 minutes for large eggs 9 minutes for small/medium eggs; 15 minutes for extra-large).
- When the timer is up remove the eggs and transfer them directly into the ice water bath to stop cooking. Stick the bowl into the fridge and let it sit for at least a half hour.
- Let cool completely and peel the egg shells.
- Transfer the peeled eggs in a bowl and mash with a fork. Try to mash egg whites into small, same-size pieces.
- Add mayonnaise and Dijon mustard and mix until well combined. Season as desired (I just add oregano); stir gently to combine.
- Evenly distribute the egg salad on one side of each bread slice. Put the other slice of bread on top.
- Cut the sandwich in half and it’s ready to serve.
- Serve pure or with greens and or sliced tomatoes.
- Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
