Classic egg salad recipe is the perfect make-ahead dish.

Great for breakfast on toast, for lunch in a wrap, or over salad or in a sandwich.

Sometimes I just eat it with a spoon right out of the container!

It’s funny how I have so many variations of egg salad recipes on my site, like this Chickpea Egg Salad and this Avocado Egg Salad.

don’t have this classic, which I eat all the time.

solved! I make a batch of Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs and make this on the weekend to have for the week.

You can easily double or triple this recipe or make this stovetop Hard Boiled Eggs method.
