Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 2 sandwiches


  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of sandwich bread, toasted or soft (depending on your preference) * see notes
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped chives or scallions


  • Place your eggs in a medium saucepan. Fill the pan with water going about 1 inch above the eggs. Bring to a boil and reduce heat slightly to prevent having the eggs crack. Gently boil for 7 to 8 minutes. Take the eggs out of the hot water and transfer to an ice bath. Once cooled, peel and dice your eggs, and set them aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine mayo, sour cream, mustard, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine. Add the eggs to the mayo mix and gently stir until combined.
  • Divide and spread the egg salad evenly between 2 pieces of bread. Top with chopped chives or scallions and top each sandwich with another piece of bread. Serve!


* Sandwich bread is the classic bread for egg salad sandwiches. But of course, you can use whichever bread you like best! You can use untoasted or toasted bread.
