Egg Salad With A Twist is great to take-along to any function, school, work, or family gathering. With Easter coming up and having seven (7) grandchildren we always make dozens and dozens of colored eggs and a lot of times we have way too many boiled eggs left in the house because they forgot to take them home. What better way to use up all the boiled eggs than my Egg Salad With A Twist!

The funniest part is letting one of them smash them up with my cute little egg man! I picked it up at one of the stores that sells almost anything, and I’m so glad I did. It’s way better than using a fork to smash them and with the younger grandchildren you want to make sure they don’t use knives. It’s our favorite conversation with the kids. Whomever is using it usually peeps like a baby chick. Believe me, when you have three or more of the running around peeping you can’t help but laugh. Laughter in the kitchen is one of the best medicines around.

I love the combined flavors of my Egg Salad With A twist the eggs with mayo, yogurt, and peppers along with some other tasty ingredients kick up an regular old boring egg sandwich! I love how easy these are to make as well. Oh, and boiling the perfect egg is a cinch, all you have to do is put your eggs in a pot of water, bring it to a boil, cover and remove from heat and let set for 15 minutes. The yolks are a nice yellow and the whites are perfectly done, no fuss needed and the centers don’t have that grayish color from over cooking them. My Egg Salad With A Twist are wonderful to serve anytime and will certainly be on the top of the list for remaking. Enjoy!
