Egg Mayo is truly the easiest recipe with minimal ingredients and so quick to make. It is a dish made primarily of chopped hard-boiled eggs and mayonnaise. Have you ever read my previous Egg Mayo Sandwich recipe? You will realize that this recipe is basically the same, but only made with eggs and mayonnaise only. If you are feeling creative, you can also add some mustard or seasonings in the form of herbs and spices.
I do not know if Egg Mayo topping is available at Yoshinoya in your region, but it is definitely my favorite to order with a warm gyudon beef bowl. The combination of crushed boiled eggs with mayonnaise creates a very tasty rich and creamy flavor. It can also be served as a side salad, topping, or on toast just like my Egg Mayo Sandwich recipe.
How to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs
Hard-boiled eggs are the primary ingredients in this recipe, so it is best to make them just right. To achieve sufficiently perfect hard-boiled eggs, I usually choose eggs that have been in the refrigerator the longest. The older eggs are easier to peel than the fresh one. Boil eggs in a large saucepan for 10-12 minutes. After that, strain the water and run the eggs with cold water for a few minutes to cool them quickly and stop them from cooking further. Crackle the shell all over by tapping the eggs on hard surface, then roll the egg back and forth to loosen the shell. To make things easier, you can peel the eggs under cold running water or dip them in a bowl of water to help remove the shell.
