Classic Egg Salad

March 23, 2010

We’ve never been big carnivores, but getting a toddler to eat protein is sometimes difficult so I have been cooking more meat lately.  After watching Food, Inc. this weekend, we vowed to cut back on meat.  This egg salad is a great way to get protein and iron, without eating a steak.

6 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
4 spoonfuls mayonnaise
1/2 tsp yellow mustard
1 sprig parsley, chopped
1 sprig thyme, chopped
salt
pepper

Combine eggs through thyme, and coarsely mix with a fork.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve on whole grain bread or bun.

    Also a great way to use up all the Easter eggs we’re going to have in a couple of weeks!

    When I was pregnant with Lauren I ate egg salad several times a week.. guess my body needed that iron! Love it with spanish green olives/pimentos in it too.. makes it good and salty tasting.
