Recipe: Western Egg Salad

This recipe for Western Egg salad is another one of my adaptations for Egg Salad. I like to change things up a bit to keep things interesting. I thought taking the basic ingredients of a Western Omelet and using them in an Egg Salad would taste pretty good… I’m happy to report it was more than pretty good… it was very very good.


If your hard-boiled eggs have gray ring around the yolk… see my previous post… “Making Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs” … for tips on making them without the ring around the yolk.

I also have a post on a quick and easy method of dicing eggs perfectly… Dicing Hard-Boiled Eggs Made Easy.

I decided to use pimento in the recipe instead of red pepper, since I was using green pepper, I didn’t want the pepper flavors to overpower the salad. You certainly could use diced red pepper instead but I urge you to try it my way.

I always use Hellman’s Real Mayonnaise.

The amounts are what I used, you can add more or less depending on your tastes.

This recipe makes enough for 2 sandwiches.

I hope you try this… it will give a new spin on an old favorite.
