The Best Egg Mayonnaise Sandwiches

This recipe for egg mayo is quick and easy to make.

Adding the mayonnaise to the eggs makes a very tasty creamy filling.

Step by step instructions with photos.

The ingredients are for a full tray, but can be adjusted to make just one egg mayonnaise sandwich or only a few.


  • Ten large eggs
  • Twenty pieces of sliced bread; white or brown
  • Parsley
  • Mayonnaise
  • Salt

Step 1

  1. Put the eggs gently into cold water and boil for seven minutes.
  2. The water should cover the tops of the eggs.
  3. Add a couple of pinches of salt to the water as this will stop the eggs from cracking in the hot water.

Step 2

  1. When boiled for seven minutes leave in hot water for a further two minutes.
  2. Pour out the hot water and add the cooked eggs to a bowl of cold water.
  3. Remove the shells from the eggs.
  4. If this is sometimes difficult dip the egg back into the cold water and continue to strip all the shells from the eggs.

Step 3

  1. Mash up the boiled eggs with a fork.
  2. First do this roughly into big pieces.
  3. Then continue to use the fork to make the boiled eggs into smaller pieces suitable for the egg mayo sandwiches.

Step 4

Fresh parsley straight from a parsley plant really makes a difference with the taste

You can grow them in your own garden or buy a plant at the supermarket and leave it to grow in the pot in a sunny position in your kitchen.

If you can not get fresh parsley you can use the dried packets too.

  1. Remove a bunch of the parsley from the plant and cut away the storks.
  2. Chop up the parsley into smaller pieces.
  3. The amount and size of the chopped parsley depends on your own preference.
  4. I prefer to leave the parsley large enough so that it is clearly visible in the sandwich.
  5. This also brings out the fresh taste of this wonderful herb.
  6. Mix it well into the eggs in the bowl.

Step 5

  1. Take a few large spoons of mayonnaise and put them into the bowl.
  2. The amount will again depend on your taste.
  3. The eggs should be moist and wet once everything is mixed.
  4. You can at this stage add some salt but only very little as the eggs do not really need that much to flavour it.
  5. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave in the fridge for thirty minutes.

      I've been making these for years. I always buy a 7 grain bread but last week I bought an egg sandwich at a grocery store. They use the same mayo but make the sandwiches on white bread. It was so gooshy and delicious I've decided to get a loaf of white and have available. Good eating!

      Hello Karen

      You could eat them the next day but not after that. But they would not taste very nice to be honest. It's always best to eat them the same day

      Well done! I love egg salad, and this looks like a great way to make a lot for guests. Nice hub!

      Also, as Mike and RTallonni mentioned, egg salad can be made with a dash of mustard and some pickle relish, too. I love making it. Your version sounds good, too!

      Hello Zack. To be honest I have never used sweet mayo on my egg mayo sandwiches. I always use the normal one. Maybe the next time you are making the sandwiches you could make half and half and see which one tastes better. Would be interested in the results myself too.

      Thanks everyone for reading my recipe and for your comments.

      Yes everyone has their own way of cooking and making up their unique recipes especially when it comes to sanwiches. All of the suggestions here sound just as tasty too lol.

      akintayo olubusola it is a shame you can not get any fresh parsely where you live. If you can buy dried parsely it will taste nearly as good. I have never tried egg mayo sandwich with lettuce mixed in the ingredients but I do add some lettuce leaves to the bread sometimes and that tastes fine.

      RTalloni Thanks for the comment on my Irish hub too. Yes you can link to any of my hubs if you wish.

      These do look tasty.

      Mike must be from the southern USA because he knows what an egg salad sandwich is.

      Your version is different and I hope to try it soon because I grow my own parsley.

      Our eggs salad is very similar, but has a bit of mustard, a good dose of sweet pickle relish, a nice dab of diced pimentos, with some salt and pepper to taste, the same amount of mayo as yours, no parsley. The eggs should be cooked the way you describe. :)

      Love your Irish hub! I would like to link it to my Saint Patrick hub if you have no objection.

      Looks good, I usually add some relish to my egg salad sandwiches.

      Wow. I thought everyone knew how to make an "egg salad sandwich". You should ad diced sweet pickles as well. Gives it a sweet nice crunch. I also sometimes ad a little mustard.

      Also you really shouldn't boil eggs but hard cook them. Put in pan just covered with water. Bring to rapid boil then cover and remove from heat. Let sit and cook in the water for 15 minutes then drain and put in cold water. This avoids the overcooked rubbery purple colored yolks.
