Why Egg Salad Sandwiches disappear in my house?  These Egg Salad Sandwiches have the perfect combination of eggs, mayo, sweet relish, celery, and Cajun seasoning.

I am going to show you how to make this easy egg salad.  See Recipe and Video in this post. 





My family says Egg Salad Sandwiches are like eating deviled eggs but on bread.  They all love them.  I always use a dozen eggs to make this salad, and everyone complains it is never enough.  You may want to read my post on Filling Up Teenagers who have a bottomless pit for a stomach.  

Ready To Grab And Go

Having these Egg Salad sandwiches ready-made to grab and go helps to fill everyone up.  When I make them, my kids eat them for breakfast, lunch, and snacks until they are gone.  They are getting protein and filling their stomachs with something besides junk food.  My teenage son who plays sports needs extra protein.  If you are looking for a great sandwich or snack to feed your children after school, or anytime, try to make these wonderful Egg Salad Sandwiches.   I am sure you will watch them disappear as fast as they do in my family.


I doubled the recipe in the picture below and used 24 eggs.

My deviled eggs are so delicious topped with bacon.  It just hit me when I was typing this post that I need to add crumbled bacon to this salad.  See my oven fried bacon recipe.

  1. I have never heard of the seasoning out west, maybe I can find it in Ohio next week. I use the same recipe except I use celery salt but want to try yours with Paul’s seasoning.

    • Michelle,

      Thank you so much for pinning my Egg Salad. It really is so yummy! I recently redone the pictures for my egg salad and updated my post, so be sure to save the most recent pictures.
      Blessings Always,

  2. Hey Diane, shared around the universe! My family would love these, so I’ll have to make them for them very soon. I don’t do eggs, unless very well disguised, lol. Thanks for another terrific recipe. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

  3. I love egg salad for lunch. The addition of putting it on sweet rolls sounds perfect!
    Looks creamy and delicious. Have a great weekend Diane!

  4. Ok, I have to admin not an egg salad person here. As a kid, for some reason when I was in first grade the school would only serve egg salad sandwiches for the cold paid lunch. I was a picky eater to begin with much like my Lily is and wouldn’t eat the hot lunch at all, so the school tried to push the cold egg sandwiches on me. Needless to say I wouldn’t eat them and didn’t eat anything for a few weeks for lunch. My poor mom, who thought she was doing something good for me by paying for school lunch soon found out I wasn’t eating lunch at all. She felt so terrible and guilty and ended up making me whatever I wanted to take to lunch from that point on. Still to this day I remember that and that is what egg salad sandwiches remind me of for some reason. However, your version does sound great and may try for Kevin who absolutely loves deviled eggs, but I admit I won’t be trying anytime soon for me sadly, because I am still not a fan.

    • Janine,

      You sound like a mess growing up. I probably would not eat school egg salad either. It just sounds horrible. If you make some for Kevin, try a bite.

      Thank you for all your support! You will never know how much I truly appreciate your support.
