Egg Sandwiches and Hard Boiled Eggs How-To

This is super simple, who hasn't made egg salad before? Well, if not, I know someone out there is looking for an egg salad sandwich recipe, perhaps a younger one wanting to learn to make things in the kitchen or a student out on their own for the first time, or a newlywed trying to impress their significant other? Well this isn't anything fancy, but it's good! This is a really easy simple recipe, it's how I like mine. I don't use measurements but I'll guesstimate it for you.

Egg Salad
1 dozen hard boiled eggs* (how to below)
1/4 C mayo
1 Tbl mustard
1 Tbl sour cream
2 Tbl milk
parsley (optional)
sliced bread (I used this whole wheat)

Separate the hard boiled eggs* from the yolks and white part in 2 different bowls. Using a potato smasher (easiest way for me) or chop them up with a knife, breaking up the egg whites until they are small pieces. Do the same for the egg yolks in another bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the yolks and continue to mash (or stir with a spoon) to combine all, adding more mayo or milk if needed until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Combine the egg whites to the egg yolk mixture, and gently combine. Spread on your favorite sandwich bread.

Hard Boiled Eggs*
1 dozen eggs
large sauce pan (I use my stock pot)

Place eggs in pan and cover with cold water, about 1" over the eggs. Add a little salt to the water (I do this to help it boil faster), cover and bring to a boil*. Keep an eye on it, just as it comes to a boil, set a timer for 10 minutes, and cook. Drain and rinse/soak the eggs in cold running water to stop the cooking process. When eggs are cool enough to handle, peel and use in your favorite recipes such as:
-egg sandwiches (my recipe above)
Perfect way to use your colored Easter eggs!
