Shortcut Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe

An egg salad sandwich makes a great lunch, but most of the time it’s not something I have all mixed up and ready to go. I do, however, keep hard-boiled eggs on hand most often. Turns out, you don’t need to create a complicated mixture to enjoy a delicious egg salad sandwich. This post is sponsored by Lunchbox, but all opinions are my own.

Egg and mayo on toast.

Mike requested an egg salad sandwich the other day. I didn’t have the time to make my normal egg salad recipe, so I thought I’d try a shortcut. Using hard-boiled eggs that were already in the refrigerator, I made him a sandwich in minutes. Using the new Hellmann’s Mayo squeeze bottle, I drew him a little heart on the bread. (It’s the little things, after all.)

Steps to make a shortcut egg salad sandwich.

Shortcut to make an Egg Salad Sandwich


Makes 1 sandwich

  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 slices of bread
  • Mustard
  • Hellmann’s Mayo in the new squeeze bottle
  • Pepper
  • Paprika


  1. Slice your hard boiled eggs.
  2. Lightly toast the bread.
  3. Place egg white rings on one slice of bread.
  4. Top with crumbled yolks (you don’t have to use all the yolks).
  5. Sprinkle with mustard to taste.
  6. Add mayo to taste.
  7. Top with pepper and paprika.
  8. Using the Hellmann’s Mayo squeeze bottle, draw or write something creative on the other slice of bread to make someone happy!

Normally when I make a big batch of egg salad, it doesn’t all get eaten in time. This shortcut not only saved me time, but also prevented waste. It was just as yummy, too! Total win. Try the best potato salad with eggs recipe next!
