Budget Friendly Lunch: Egg Salad Sandwich

This creamy egg salad is an easy and cost effective lunch that will last you multiple meals! Add a simple side for a complete plate!

I have been obsessed with egg salad over the last couple of weeks!  It’s a source of protein for me and it’s filling.  I like that I can make a big batch and eat it throughout the week and it’s easy on the bank account.

This creamy egg salad is an easy and cost effective lunch that will last you multiple meals! Add a simple side for a complete plate!

Egg Salad Ingredients: mashed hard boiled eggs, mayo, pink himalayan salt, black pepper, mustard, and rice vinegar.  I go pretty heavy on the mayo which makes it creamy and you only need a little splash of the rice vinegar for some acidity.  My grandma puts this in her deviled eggs and it is a complete game changer.

Cost Breakdown of the Egg Salad Sandwich

Half Dozen Organic, Cage Free Eggs: $2.49 (high end)

OR

Dozen Eggs (not organic): $1.99

Sourdough Bread, 9 Slices: $3.00 (high end)

OR

Market Pantry Loaf of Bread, 20 Slices: $1.59 (low end)

Mayo, Mustard, Salt, Pepper, and Rice Vinegar: Less than $1.00?  More than likely you already have these ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator and they last a long time!

Egg salad sandwiches are an easy meal to throw together and one sandwich breaks down to about $1.53 (what you use specifically will of course change this number), but that is a cheap meal if you ask me!  Add some frozen cooked vegetables or potato chips to complete the meal and keep it at a low cost.
