Creamy Egg Salad

A creamy, delicious egg salad that's perfect alone or in a sandwich.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. To cook the eggs, place them in a single layer in a pan with enough cold water to cover them completely.
  2. Bring the water to a boil, remove from heat, cover tightly with a lid, and allow to remain in the water approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Then place under running, cold water to cool quickly. This way of cooking is also known as "coddling." It does not toughen the whites as boiling does.
  4. Peel eggs; discard 6 egg yolks (you will be using 2 whole eggs and 6 egg whites).
  5. In a medium-size bowl, chop the eggs up.
  6. Add celery, onions, mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, salt and pepper to taste; stir until well mixed.
  7. Serve immediately or refrigerate if not using right away.

Absolutely! As a salad, or on a sandwich, or with low calorie chips, what a good idea!

I was very skeptical because of the sour cream but this is an amazing egg salad, I think next time I am going to mix it all together the morning of or right before I eat it, stayed in the fridge over night, I think it lost a lot of the flavor and creaminess.. other than that it's ahhmazing!

Good. Never thought of cutting some of the calories out using the sour cream instead of the mayo. I added an extra yolk, more onion and olives...put over lettuce. Used as an evening meal and later in a.m. over a thin bagel for breakfast.

Very good. I changed it up some used tuna instead of the 6 egg whites and spicy mustard instead of yellow mustard.
