Ingredients for Crab Egg Salad

Recipe Instructions

  • Boil your eggs for about 8 minutes, cool and peel the eggs then chop them up.
  • Add the chopped eggs to a mixing bowl along with remaining ingredients. Fold the mixture gently until the salad is fully combined.
  • Chill for 30 minutes before preparing sandwiches

Tips for Making Chesapeake Crab Egg Salad Recipe

  • Make this recipe ahead if possible. Give the crab egg salad and the flavors time to get happy. You can make this the night before and it will be even better the second day.
  • This Egg Salad will last up to 5 days if properly stored in the fridge. Keep the egg salad in a sealed container and its always helpful to label your containers. I use These Labels
  • Dont use expensive jumbo lump crab for this recipe. I know jumbo lump is the best but sometimes its overkill. You are going to break up the crab anyway so buying jumbo lump seems like a waste.
  • Claw meat is perfect for recipes like this because its sweeter, has more flavor and you can use a bunch of it for 1/3 of the price of jumbo lump crab. that said if you got cash coming out of your was or want to be a baller go ahead and use that jumbo lump for your crab egg salad...Just invite me over please.
  • Use good Bread, I found these croissant buns at my local Aldi and toasted them up and it really took the sandwich to another level. Use whatever bread or rolls you like or even a soft flour tortilla would be tasty.
