This is also a delicious recipe to make for those busy family days. You can make up a large batch of hard boiled eggs and store them in your refrigerator for 1 week. Keep the eggs in their shell, which keeps them the freshest. 
Egg Salad is such a comfort food . It makes a yummy quick lunch on crusty bread with a green salad. Just pair with some potato chips to finish it up!
large eggs
minced chives
minced dill
dijon mustard
salt & pepper
minced onions
butter lettuce
HOW many eggs should I boil, consider how many sandwiches you'll be making. Plan 2 eggs per person (for each sandwich).
(TIP) Make sure your eggs are fresh for this recipe! Expired eggs will float to the top of the water when you try to cook them, but a fresh egg will sit neatly at the bottom of the pan on its side.
This here is a basic recipe your Grandma would be proud of!
