My gosh, I cannot believe we are still talking about the simple thing like egg salad. There is more to this threasd than some seriously complicated dishes we have discussed here in the past. Really funny.

Charlie, remember how long the thread was on how to hard boil an egg?

My theory on that is that a seriously complicated dish is pretty straight forward in its ingredients and preparation. Whereas a simple dish has a lot of personal changes, regional changes, and just a lot more variations where it can still be called an "egg salad sandwich".
But that's just a theory

I was successful in making egg salad with egg substitute. It worked well!

I know, I know. Every person who makes it has his/hers preferences.

Boiling the eggs is way too much work. And because you can't see exactly what's going on inside the egg, too unpredictable.

I cook my eggs in about an inch of water in a frying pan, on low-med. heat; put a lid on so the top gets steamed; and check on it once or twice. Always perfect & just how I prefer the eggs, i.e., slightly soft in the center. YUM.

No need to shout Patty. I don't care if you use a fork.
The OP was asking about Egg Salad for 30 sandwiches....most of us were giving her ideas on easy ways to chop dozens of eggs.

Like some other posters here, I smash my poached eggs with a potato masher. Works fast & works great. With a fork, it would take forever if you have a whole bunch of eggs to do!

Actually, I thought they just asked how many eggs for 30 sandwiches, not how to prepare them, but it has been interesting reading all the different methods. I never would have thought about a box grater.
