Easy Egg Salad Recipe (without bread!)

One of our many favourite things about being at the cottage is the fresh eggs we buy at a nearby farm. This farm is just beautiful, especially in the early morning light. If the two large, loud dogs don’t scare you off (they did me once), you’ll find an unlocked shed with a refrigerator full of eggs.

This self-serve shed is incredibly quaint with its guest book, book exchange cupboard and sign warning off salesmen! For $6.25 we leave with a flat of 30 beautiful fresh white eggs (although we’ve heard people will drive for hours to get some of the brown ones).

In addition to yummy breakfast sandwiches and crepes, we love to use these eggs to make an easy egg salad that’s perfect for a nutritious and filling breakfast or lunch. Give it a try!

I love the crunchiness of the seasonal onions (sweet Vidalia onions are the best). But be sure to have some mints on hand for afterwards!

And if you prefer your meals with some bread, add on a slice of warm homemade white bread and you’re good to go.
