Hayden’s Egg Salad


My friend Jackie Ludlage, the brilliant, funny, super wonderful Editor of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine was looking for a good egg salad for her son…. it’s his favourite, and she doesn’t make a good one.  She wanted a recipe, a real recipe with measurements.   So, though I usually don’t measure, I decided, just for her, because she’s so amazing, that I would MEASURE and show her.   Jackie, this video is for you!

Once you’ve tried this egg salad, you’re going to be making it often and in large quantities.  I’ve taken to using my Instant Pot Egg Salad Hack to make the job so much easier.

Instant Pot Egg Loaf, it’s sounds kinda weird, but it’s a game changing hack.

The perfect Egg Salad Sandwich, or so my family tells me.  It's a little savoury, and a little sweet from the relish.... this is not just eggs and mayo!

  • 6 Extra large eggs hard boiled and peeled
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise not Miracle Whip
  • 1/4 cup sweet relish
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 pinch dried minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • salt to taste


  • In a medium bowl place the boiled eggs, and with a pastry cutter (yes a pastry cutter - trust me), chop your eggs.   Add in all remaining ingredients, mix well.  Taste.. add more pepper or salt.  Taste again.  ENJOY!


I don't use Miracle whip as I find it makes it too sweet.  If that's all you have on hand, or what you prefer, I would suggest leaving out the relish.
