First off, here's a tip for perfect hard boiled eggs (and keep in mind that older eggs peel more easily!). And if you really want to try something exciting, consider making your own mayo.

Classic Egg Salad. Make a simple recipe with egg, mayo, a bit of mustard, some salt and pepper, a sprinkling of parsley and our go to extra ingredient: a squirt of sriracha.
Tarragon Shallot Egg Salad Sandwiches. Grab some herbs and chop up some shallots for a simple, French take on the egg salad sandwich from Gourmet (pictured above).
Spicy Egg Salad Sandwiches. We love a little kick and this recipe calls for horseradish and bacon, a combo we cannot ignore. From Buttermilk Press.
Egg White Salad. A slightly lighter fare, the egg white salad from Real Simple combines egg whites with tomatoes, parsley and pepper to make a nice topping for crackers or an open face sandwich that won't weigh you down.
Curried Egg Salad. This recipe comes courtesy of Martha's daughter Alexis and uses the crunch of celery with a little kick of curry to spice up ordinary egg salad. From Martha Stewart.
Crisp Pancetta and Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe. A little bit of pancetta, some brioche bread and a solid recipe for egg salad. We're sold. Find the recipe on Chow.
Danish Egg Salad with Smoked Salmon & Dill. This recipe strikes us as a great brunch food and also a nice recipe for spring since it uses dill. We also never complain when a recipe calls for sour cream (use creme fraiche if you've got it!). From Loulies.
Egg Salad Breakfast Burrito. Try Emma's idea and incorporate those hard boiled eggs into a breakfast burrito complete with salsa and chiles to give the traditional take a kick in the pants.
