Egg SaladWhen I need my hard-boiled eggs finely chopped for recipes such as Cobb Salads, I peel them and run them through one of those netted bags that holds garlic. Just push through over your bowl!

Next time you are cooking scrambled eggs, cook a double quantity and leave half to cool. These can then be mashed with your preferred mayonnaise and freshly ground black pepper to taste.


It saves all the palaver of shelling boiled eggs, and is easier to mix into the bargain.

When making egg salad we all know to boil the water, add your eggs and cover. Turn the heat off and let sit for 20 minutes. No gray ring around the yolk and perfectly done.

Put the egg salad in a bowl, and put paper towels on top. Press in the paper towels to squeeze out some moisture.

You can also add some cubed cooked potatoes to absorb some liquid.

Some suggestions:
Adding more eggs is the best choice.
Refrigerate for an hour to see if it thickens some.
But if way too much liquid you could try adding chopped up boiled potatoes.


Some suggest using celery and chopped potatoes.
Some add crushed Saltine crackers (but not much!).
Even a tablespoon or so of nice bread crumbs.
Others recommend straining off some of the liquid or using paper towels to soak up excess.
