Tip for people who do not like the egg white part of egg salad:

Cut the whites up very small! I know, as a kid, I did not like egg salad because of the egg whites. I only ate egg yolks back then until I learned to cut the whites up smaller to gradually learn to like the flavor. Now I can eat a whole egg white!

Favorite brands to use for this easy egg salad recipe:

  • eggs-out of my chickens. Can use store bought eggs as well. The baking soda part would be optional if going that route since town eggs seem to peel better.

  • celery salt, paprika, cajun, dill weed, cardamom-McCormick
  • red pepper flakes-the sample packets from Pizza Hut seem to be working just fine!
