You just need hard boiled eggs and simple ingredient, such as butter, sour cream, onions and seasonings. I love to sprinkle the egg salad with some Hungarian sweet paprika powder. I do not add mayonnaise to this recipe, but I like to add room temperature butter because it makes the egg salad easy to mix and spread without falling apart.

How to make hard boiled eggs?

For the perfect hard boiled eggs place the eggs in a saucepan, cover them with cold water by 1 inch. Bring water to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat and boil for 9-10 minutes over medium heat. After that place the cooked eggs into ice-water bath and let them sit for a cuple minutes, then peel them.

Egg salad is best eaten within 2 days of making it, keep it covered and refrigerated.
