This method for boiling eggs works to make the eggs easy to peel every time, even with farm fresh eggs. It’s the only way I boil eggs these days. I also hear that Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs are easy to peel.

Egg Salad Sandwich with pickles

Egg Salad Sandwiches are a lunchtime favorite at our house. We have chickens, so we always have plenty of eggs. 

What Goes On Egg Salad Sandwiches:

Egg salad is delicious by itself. For an epic sandwich, we like to add a bit of Miracle Whip or mayo, lettuce, red onion and sweet pickles. It’s great served on slices of Amish White Bread, wheat bread or bakery croissants. 

My Favorite Egg Recipes:

  • If you have an abundance of eggs, Sausage and Spinach Quiche is a great dish for any meal of the day. It’s really flavorful and gets rave reviews.
  • Ham and Egg Breakfast Rolls are a great breakfast or brunch that everyone will love. They are so filling and easy to make with crescent dough.
  • Breakfast Strata is a hearty casserole with ham, eggs, bread and cheese that can be made the night before and baked fresh for breakfast. A holiday favorite that is easy to feed a crowd.
