Classic Egg Salad Sandwiches

The tip for peeling hard boiled eggs is simple – “Use eggs that are at least a week old. The fresher the egg, the more difficult they are to peel.”

Prep Time:
20 min


  • 12 hard boiled eggs, peeled
  • 12 slices whole wheat bread
  • ½ cup ( 125 mL ) mayonnaise
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp ( 1.25 mL ) each salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup ( 60 mL ) butter, softened


  1. Mash eggs with a fork. Add green onions, mayonnaise, salt and pepper; mix together until well combined.
  2. Butter each bread slice. Spread egg salad mixture on half the slices. Cap with remaining bread slices, buttered side down.
