The Week After Easter: National Egg Salad Week

With all the egg-stra hard-boiled eggs left over from the Easter season, we do not want to let them go to waste. So we make egg salad sandwiches for a simple meal. We also add a bit of curry powder to an ordinary recipe to give it an egg-straordinary flavor. Make curried egg salad sandwiches during the week after Easter—they are an egg-cellent way to use up hard-boiled eggs and observe National Egg Salad Week!



  • 3 hard boiled eggs, cooled and shelled
  • 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon onion, minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons curry powder (to taste)
  • slices of bread (white or wheat)


Roughly chop or grate the boiled eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Mix in the mayonnaise and mustard until smooth.

Stir in the onion and curry powder. Spread the mixture onto a slice of bread. Press another slice of bread on top to make a sandwich. Cut into bite-sized rectangle or triangle pieces and trim the crusts off (optional).
