Elisabeth's Egg Salad

Elisabeth loves to help in the kitchen and every now and then she will decide that she needs to make a meal by herself. She has her own kids' cookbook and I told her that if she found a recipe with ingredients we already had in the house, she could make us lunch. She found an egg salad recipe and she wanted to share it on here with you. :)

6 eggs; pickles; mayonnaise; pepper; salt.

First you must dress like a hip hop dancer. Then, fill a pot up with some water for boiling the eggs.
Once the water is boiling, carefully add the eggs to the water. Boil the eggs for 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes of boiling, carefully take the eggs out of the water and let them cool down.
Once they've cooled, de-shell them.

Elisabeth kept referring to her cookbook after each step. :)
Place the eggs in a medium bowl.
Cut up some pickles. See that giant knife? Yeah, I didn't let her handle it, so don't worry. We cut up 2 pickles.
Take a potato masher and mash the eggs into smithereens. Just be careful they don't get too mushy.

Add 1/3 C. of mayonnaise.
Pepper to taste.
And 1/4 tsp. of salt.
Don't forget the pickles!
Then stir it all together.
Spread it on a piece of bread or get out some of your favorite crackers.
And what did the hip hop chef think of her lunch?
