Ingredients

  • 6 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish drained and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pimentos drained and patted dry
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • paprika for garnish (if desired)

Instructions

  • Place the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, relish, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir to combine. Add the pimentos and stir gently until incorporated. I add the pimentos separately to avoid overmixing them. If they get stirred around too much their color will bleed into the egg salad.
  • Refrigerate or serve immediately. I like mine served open face on a piece of soft bread. Sprinkle each sandwich with paprika, if desired.
