Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mash eggs in a small bowl with a fork. Stir in celery, mayonnaise, mustard, scallion greens and pepper until combined.



Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Tip: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

Too Much Dijon I think it calls for too much Dijon mustard. You could cut it in half and be fine. I actually couldn't finish it based on the recipe. I think revising it slightly would make it a solid recipe. Cons: Too much Dijon too mushy Read More
