Not all of my family members like egg salad sandwiches, but for the ones that do, this recipe has been a hit!

It’s super easy to make and is perfect for picnics, easy school lunches or a protein-packed lunch for busy days.

Here’s my hard-boiled egg method: I get the water boiling, add the eggs and set the timer for about 8 1/2 minutes, continuing to boil them during that time. Then I drain the hot water, add cold water directly to pan and peel each individual egg under running cold water for quick and easy peeling!

The “secret” ingredients are SUGAR (just a teaspoon) and turmeric. I’ve been reading a lot about the incredible spice that turmeric is. You can read more about it here: “600 Reasons Turmeric May Be the World’s Most Important Herb”.



6 hard-boiled eggs

1-2 Tbsp finely chopped white/yellow onion

1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon homemade or organic mayonnaise

1/2 Tbsp mustard

1/2 tsp dried dill

1/4 tsp paprika

1 tsp organic cane sugar

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 tsp turmeric  *optional, just added for it’s super-healing benefits!



1. Hard-boil your eggs.

2. Place peeled eggs in bowl and use fork and knife to slice into small pieces.

3. Add other ingredients and mix well.

4. Taste, adjust ingredients as needed – then spoon onto bread.
