Simple Chopped Egg Salad

Egg salad is usually served in sandwiches for lunch and is a very affordable one at that. Eggs are a great source of protein and are easy to prepare, and although usually made into sandwiches, there is no reason you cannot use them in appetizers. We all love deviled eggs, but they can be quite a bit of work for how fast they always seem to go. So why not capitalize on this popular appetizer and streamline the production part of the job. Look at it as a factory efficiency move, and your production time is being trimmed.

Usually, this would mean increased profits, but in our case, it means less time in the kitchen and more time with guests. This appetizer can be made before the guests even show up, so it makes a great make-ahead appetizer and is much easier than its cousin, the deviled egg, but still delivers the same great taste. It may even be better as you get the buttery richness of the crackers with each bit. The cracker serves as the delivery vehicle in this case and adds both texture and flavour to the egg salad.

Egg Salad – A Popular Choice

The egg salad sandwich is popular for a few reasons: ease of preparation, high protein count and the sheer economics of it. As a lunch item, it makes it affordable for working-class people trying to stretch their food budgets. One dietary benefit to eating eggs is they help you go longer between meals as the eggs leave you feeling full longer. Whether you chose egg salad for health or the budget, the bottom line is it just tastes good, and that is the most important reason to make a food item.
