Frequently Asked Questions

How should I chop my eggs for egg salad?

I think egg salad should be, at its core, chunky. Leave the eggs in larger diced chunks — don’t finely dice them!

How do you chop hard-boiled eggs?

While you can chop with a knife, I recently learned that chopping hard-broiled eggs through a cooling rack with a bowl underneath is the easiest + quickest way. The best part? It’s standardized, making the cuts even with each egg.

About Duke’s Mayonnaise

Duke’s is, hands down, the mayonnaise of the American South. It’s the most commonly used ingredient in my kitchen and I always have a jar – or four – on deck. The southern legacy of Duke’s goes back to Camp Sevier in 1917 and Eugenia Duke (Greenville, SC). Her sandwiches that were sold to army canteens during WWI were so legendary that army vets wrote to Eugenia years later begging for her sandwich recipes and jars of her delectable spread. Because of this, she began bottling it as a product on its own in 1923. Duke’s is readily available in supermarkets around the US; you can also order online here.
