Lutu-lutuan #3: Egg Salad Sandwich Spread

It’s Sunday and I promised that I would try my best to update this blog with posts at least once a week. I don’t actually cook during weekdays and I usually spend my Saturdays fan-girling and watching the TV series (Korean TV series and variety shows at that). Yesterday, I actually posted series of KPop stuff on my personal IG story when one of my close friends (Em babes) sent me a message, “Asan na ang bagong lutu-lutuan?!” I told her that I’ll post something today. So, who’s present to post something today? Me! πŸ˜€

I prepared 2 meals so far today (I think I already used my stored sipag for the day, so that’s it. :p). For breakfast, we had pandesal with egg salad sandwich spread. I love egg sandwich. It’s creamy and yummy and it’s easy to prepare. Just mix hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, onions, salt, pepper, sugar and cheese… and you’re done!

But how do you prepare hard-boiled eggs? I swear, it’s almost always just luck if I have perfect hard-boiled eggs that’s also easy to peel. But somehow, this is the most consistent way that I tried:

If your eggs are from the ref, take it out minutes before you start cooking it. In a pot, bring water (enough to submerge the eggs in it) to a boil. Place your eggs, cover and let it simmer for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove pot from heat then drain the hot water. Shake it that the eggs bump each other and make small cracks on its shell. Put water and let it sit still for 10-15 minutes before peeling it.


  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1/2 small (approx. 1 tbsp) onion, minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 3/8 cup mayonnaise (I originally put 1/4 cup mayonnaise but added 1/8 cup more, doing some math, 3/8 cup in total)
  • 1 inch cube grated cheese


  1. Roughly smash the eggs using fork.
  2. Combine all ingredients into the eggs and mix well.



That’s it! Spread it into your favorite bread right after or put it in the refrigerator and chill it for later use. πŸ™‚
