  • 4 slices shokupan (Japanese milk bread, also called Hokkaido bread) – if you cannot find shokupan you can make it from scratch using this recipe
  • Butter
  • 4 medium to hard boiled eggs, peeled
  • 5 tablespoons kewpie mayo – if you cannot find kewpie mayo you can make it from scratch using this recipe
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (use a little less for table salt, since the grains are smaller)
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • Ground black pepper


  1. Put the hard boiled eggs in a bowl and mash with a fork. 
  2. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt and pepper, and stir. Continue mashing until the bits of egg are all about the same size (the smaller the better).
  3. Butter each slice of bread and spread the egg salad on two slices. 
  4. Top with the other slice and cut the sandwich in half. Serve


  • Make it creamier by adding 1-2 teaspoons of milk.

Storing egg salad: Put the egg salad in an airtight storage container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
