  • stockpot
  • Cutting board
  • knife
  • mixing bowl with a lid
  • egg slicer


  • 12 large hard boiled eggs peeled, and cooled
  • ½ cup mayonnaise *add a little more if the salad seems dry
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup celery diced into small pieces
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill chopped


  • Add your eggs to a saucepan large enough to hold them all and cover them with one inch of cold water. Over high heat, bring water to a rolling boil. Reduce the temperature to medium-high heat, and cook eggs for an additional 8 minutes. Once done, run hot eggs under cold water until they are cool to the touch and can be peeled. Peel eggs, and set them into a large bowl.
    Using a potato masher or egg slicer, mash/slice eggs until they are broken apart into smaller chunks.
  • Fold in the mayo, onion, mustard, celery, fresh dill, salt, pepper, and lemon juice; combine. Store egg salad in the refrigerator to chill and allow flavors to meld. Serve chilled.
