  • Next cut all of the egg whites into small pieces and put the chopped egg whites back into the large bowl.
  • With a fork smash the yokes until they are all fully crumbled into tiny crumb pieces.
  • Add the mayo and the mustard to the bowl with the mashed egg yokes. Mix everything well so it is nice and creamy.
  • Add the yoke mixture to the diced egg whites and mix well.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve right away or store in the fridge.
