Easy Creamy Egg Salad Canapes

My mom was the inspiration for this recipe. Not because I’m going to make her breakfast in bed this year for Mother’s day (but we are going out to brunch), but because she makes the best deviled eggs! This recipe for Easy Creamy Egg Salad Canapés are my riff on her deviled eggs.

The ingredient list for making Creamy Egg Salad Canapes:

Hard-boiled eggs, celery, shallot, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, yellow mustard, salt, pepper, cocktail bread, and chopped chives. Find the complete printable recipe below.

The struggle was real:

I’ve always struggled with making hard boiled eggs that are easy to peel. Maybe you have to, and if you’re the same as me, I have a few little tips for you that will make your life SO much easier. Especially for making these Easy Creamy Egg Salad Canapes.

Tip One:

Make sure that the eggs you choose for boiling are not freshly purchased from the grocery store. The best eggs for hard boiling are the slightly older ones. The ones that you’ve had in your fridge for a few weeks. It may seem counterintuitive, but those are the ones that work the best.

Tip Two:

Use the smallest pan possible to fit the number of eggs you’ve chosen to boil. This way as the water boils, the eggs don’t have room to bounce around into each other, which will lessen the chance that they’ll crack and break in the water.

Tip Three:

Fill the pan with cold water to just above the eggs. Turn on the heat and bring the eggs to a boil. As soon as the eggs start to boil, turn the heat off and cover the pan. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for only 13 minutes (longer will result in that unsightly gray ring that surrounds the yolk). Run the cooked eggs under cold water and easily peel them when you’re ready to use.

Now that you know how to make easy-peel hard boiled eggs, make the Creamy Egg Salad the night before you plan on serving the canapes.

In the morning when you’re ready to serve, assembling the Creamy Egg Salad Canapes will take only minutes making them the perfect way to surprise mom on her special day with breakfast in bed.
