I love egg salad but I have never loved mayo. I can eat small amounts in recipes or a little on a sandwich but I can't handle a lot of it. So this recipe is light on mayo, to me it's just right but if you love mayo feel free to add more :).
6 hard boiled eggs (only use half of the yolks)
1 Tbs. mayo made with olive oil (1/2 fat of regular and I think it taste better then reduced fat or fat free)
sea salt, fresh ground pepper, paprika, mrs.dash garlic and herbs to taste
bread (My favorite is honey wheat)
*Tip on hard boiling your eggs *
Place your eggs in a single layer at the bottom of your pot
cover with cold water & sprinkle with a little salt, let come to
a rolling boil & then turn off the heat & let sit with lid on for
15-18 minutes depending on the size of your eggs. Poor off
hot water and cover with cold water take eggs out and crack
the top, bottom and then gently roll of the counter top & place
back into the cold water. This makes them SO easy to peel!
Let sit in cold water for a good 10 minutes and then go ahead
& peel - You can let them sit longer if you need to.
Once your eggs are boiled chop three of the eggs up with the yolks in them & three of the eggs without the yolks. Chop your avocado and throw into your eggs then add mayo and season to your liking. I like just a dash of paprika and a couple of dashes of the garlic and herbs seasoning. But taste as you season. Then another tip to save some calories, I spray my bread with cooking spray & sprinkle with garlic salt and then place in a frying pan that has cooking spray on it for a couple of minutes to lightly toast my bread. This is optional, but it really adds a lot of flavor & no calories.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
