While this recipe uses an electric egg cooker, you can also make this egg salad using leftover hard-boiled eggs or simply boiling them on your stove top.
- 6 eggs
- 4 large portobello mushroom caps (about 5 inch diameter)
- 1/4 cup real mayonnaise
- 1-1/2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 rib celery, finely chopped
- 2 green onions, white and light green sections thinly sliced
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 roma tomatoes, sliced
- Pierce the bottom of each egg. Fill water in the measuring container to the “Hard” line and pour into the cooker. Place the eggs in the boiling tray bottom-side up. Cover and press the Power button. When the cooker beeps, transfer eggs to a bowl of cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel eggs under cold running water; dry with a paper towel. Coarsely chop eggs.
- Meanwhile, add portobello mushrooms, top side up, to a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with olive oil. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly softened and golden brown. Arrange mushrooms bottom side up on serving plates. Let cool slightly.
- In a medium bowl, combine eggs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, celery and green onions, mashing together with a potato masher or firm whisk, until your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper, mixing well. Fill the mushrooms with the egg salad mixture. Garnish with sliced tomatoes. Serve immediately.
* Add 1 tbsp Dijon mustard to the mixture.
* Add 2 radishes, grated to the mixture. You can grate the radishes using a box grater and grate over the larger holes.1
