Deviled Ham and Egg Salad

Please share

Deviled ham and egg salad is the perfect savory sandwich filling. It is also great on crackers. You will love this easy and delicious mix of flavors.

You know longer have to choose between ham salad and egg salad, you can have them both at the same time. This mix is super simple and oh so tasty.

Of course we think to make it most frequently after our Easter celebration. We tend to have a lot of hard boiled eggs and leftover ham then.

Ingredients including ham, hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, sugar, salt, pepper, paprika, mustard, pickle relish, and vinegar ready to be made into ham and egg salad.

So this is the perfect way to use both at the same time. You can enjoy it on bread as a sandwich, on crackers as a snack, or pile it on lettuce for a green salad.

The dressing has the flavors we love from deviled eggs, hence the name deviled ham and egg salad. Then you just stir in chopped ham and eggs.

How long can you keep ham and egg salad?

You can store ham and egg salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 4 days. I do not recommend freezing this salad.

How do you serve ham and egg salad?

Ham and egg salad should be served cold. It shouldn’t sit at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

If you are serving it at a picnic, put the bowl of salad inside a larger bowl with some ice in it. Or keep it in a cooler until you are ready use it.

I love turning leftovers into another meal. It's practically the only way to get the hubby to eat leftovers, ha ha. I've never added ham to my egg salad, but it sure sounds like it would be delicious! :-)
