Perfectly simple and delicious describes this authentic recipe for The Masters Egg Salad.
Many copycat recipes add all kinds of ingredients like, vinegar, mustard, celery or seasonings but that is not how Augusta National does things. Everything is done simple and perfect just like the egg salad they serve to their Masters patrons.
To create this recipe I went right to the source, the Masters egg salad sandwich bag. They list every ingredient and surprisingly there are only a few simple ones.
The key to creating an authentic egg salad just like you would get on the course is to chop your boiled eggs very small. Then it is important to mix all the ingredients until the yellow of the eggs and the mayonnaise create a creamy smooth salad. Of course, if you have ever been to the Masters you know it’s always served on soft white bread!
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- ½ cup Dukes mayonnaise
- ⅛ teaspoon sweet paprika
- (yes, that's all there is to perfect egg salad)
