Tips and tricks for the best deviled egg salad

  • Do not over chop the eggs; make sure you have small, but not to small pieces. If the pieces are too small, during the stirring process they can easily be mashed.
  • Do not over mix this salad.
  • You can toss in some chopped olives instead of chopped pickles for a recipe variation.

Picking the right eggs for low carb deviled egg salad

The age – The age of the eggs only matters if you are using eggs that were just laid or you are plucking the eggs from the coop within a few days. The eggs from the store are most likely two weeks old and that is not a big deal. Look for the eggs with the longest date.

Cold vs. room temperature – The starting temperature of the egg doesn’t really mater. You don’t need to bring your eggs to room temperature before boiling them so I wouldn’t stress about it. If you are doing a “cold start” boil, the eggs will warm up as the water heats up.

If you are doing a “hot start” and placing your eggs directly in boiling water, they will also heat up so feel free to add them straight from your fridge to the water without waiting.

Brown vs. white eggs – the color here does not matter. You can choose any you like or have available.

 

How to cook perfect hard boiled eggs

  • Put the eggs in a large pot with a lid. Pour cool water over the eggs until fully submerged and add baking soda to the water. This will prevent the egg shell from cracking. If you do not have baking soda, you can add a pinch of salt too.
  • Put the pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Once the water is at a rolling boil, turn off the heat and cover the pot with the lid.
  • Allow the eggs to sit in the hot water for 12 minutes for hard boiled.
  • Prepare a bowl of ice water. Transfer the cooked eggs to the ice water to cool completely before peeling.

Can you freeze egg salad?

Technically you can freeze egg salad but if you’re concerned about the taste and texture then I would say you shouldn’t freeze it at all. The egg salad has two components that do not freeze well at all – eggs and mayo. Hardboiled eggs in particular have a shorter shelf life than raw eggs. Also plain mayonnaise is also a bad food to freeze. While this popular dressing can hold its original form while in the freezer, its emulsion will break as it thaws. You can expect the oil and vinegar or lemon juice to separate as well. Simply put, when you put egg salad in a freezer, you will end up with a rubbery and watery dish that I am sure no one would want to eat.
