Frugal Fridays: Egg Salad Sandwiches

This is a very easy and quick recipe, not to mention cheap!

Egg Salad Sandwiches


Serves 4

6 eggs hard boiled and chopped – FREE (since we have laying hens)
2-3 tablespoons of Miracle Whip mayo (Miracle Whip can be frozen) – $.36
1 tsp. of mustard – $.02
1/4 tsp. paparika – $.06
Salt and Pepper to taste – $.02
1/2 cup green onions (if you prefer) – $.37
8 slices of bread (cost depends on your choice of bread) (I like white bread for my egg salad) – $.61

Total Cost – $1.44
Per Sandwich – $0.36

Prep Day: Make the hard boiled eggs – Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place desired number of eggs in a regular or mini muffin tin and bake for 30 minutes. Remove eggs from oven and, using a pair of tongs, immediately transfer the eggs to an ice water bath. Allow to cool down for at least 10 minutes. Chop eggs. Mix all ingredients together, adjust ingredients for taste and place in freezer container till needed.

Serve Day: Thaw egg salad and place desired amount between 2 pieces of bread.


My friend and her mom growing up used to freeze egg salad sandwiches. They would individually wrap the sandwiches and bag them before freezing. When they wanted any they would take as many as they wanted from the freezer, butter the outsides and grill them like grilled cheese sandwiches. By the time the outside was toasty looking at the inside it still had a bit of a chill. It was a nice combo.

I usually serve fruit and green salad with these sandwiches.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine.
