Spicy Egg Salad

I should have been an egg farmer. I dreamed of having laying hens, mind you not really a barn full, only a few running around on a country yard, just enough to supply me with eggs.
Back to the salad, I love this spiced up egg salad and instead of the usual bread style sandwich it really is good with bread crisps, just right for scooping.
  • 4 eggs, hard boiled
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons canned jalapenos, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped
  • Dash or two of cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Peel and chop boiled eggs.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. If you find the mixture too dry for your liking add a bit more mayonnaise.
  3. Refrigerate in a covered container until ready to serve. I like to let the mixture sit in the fridge at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
  4. Serve on a bed of lettuce with bread crisps.


  1. I love egg salad anything! This looks delicious. Did you make the bread crisps?

    1. Yes I did Rosella. They are toasted homemade pita bread crisps.

    2. Can you share this recipe too!
      They sound yummy!

  2. I wished you live next door Betty! That looks really yummy.

  3. This looks great Betty. I love Eggs, big. little, brown, white, chicken or duck. At one time I listened to all that ho ha about not eating eggs. I don't think I ate more than two eggs a year then, and only in baking and if it snuck up on me. Now I generally eat two eggs every day, and there are some days I've eating four or six. They are the perfect food after all, everything needed to make a baby chick, and especially handy when it hurts to cook. People with arthritis and other disabling, exhausting conditions should avail themselves of eggs. Available everywhere, inexpensive, quick to cook, hunger satisfying good fat and protein. I might have two eggs for breakfast on toast, and another three in a quick omelette with salad and fruit at supper. Well this looks about perfect, a heap of spicy egg salad that can be made ahead and serve as lunch or breakfast or supper. I love eggs!


  4. i love that idea of dipping the egg mixture instead of a sandwich!
