What Makes This Recipe So Good

This rich, creamy egg salad is the perfect keto meal prep, salad topping, and sandwich filling. It’s absolutely perfect for when you’re eating low carb and high fat, or just need an extra boost of protein. With a secret ingredient that helps boost the creaminess and fat content, this egg salad will become one of your favorite keto staples.


  • Hard boiled eggs – Perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs pack this salad full of protein and flavor.
  • Mayonnaise – Good quality mayo makes this salad creamy, but without a weird aftertaste.
  • Dill – Green and herbal, dill gives an extra layer of flavor to the richness of the other ingredients.
  • Mustard – Adds some tang and keeps this egg salad from being anything but bland.
  • Butter – The secret ingredient that takes this egg salad to the next level. It really helps ramp up the creaminess and richness a ton and makes this egg salad the best I’ve ever had.

How To Make It

  1. Chop the eggs. I like a combination of larger chunks and smaller ones.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Serve on keto bread, on top of a bed of lettuce, or in Bibb or butter lettuce cups.

  • Storage: Keep in fridge in airtight container up to 5 days.
  • Hard boiling eggs in air fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 300º. Add the eggs to the basket. Cook 13 minutes, then remove the eggs and place in bowl of ice water. After the eggs have cooled, drain the water. Jiggle the eggs in the bowl or a small glass to help them peel.
  • Hard boiling eggs on stovetop: Fill the saucepan with enough water to cover your eggs by about 1 inch. Place saucepan on the stove and add a glug of vinegar and a couple big pinches of salt. Bring water to a boil. Cook 12-13 minutes. When time is up, carefully remove the eggs from the boiling water and transfer to an ice water bath using a slotted spoon or small handheld strainer. Let sit until chilled, about 5 minutes. Jiggle the eggs in the bowl or a small glass to help them peel.
