In addition to the popular pimento cheese sandwiches and other simple food faves, the Masters is known for their famous Egg Salad Sandwiches! Served up in green plastic baggies for $1.50, the egg salad is as iconic as the green grass, blooming azaleas, and the tournament’s famous green jackets!

Tips for Making Masters Egg Salad Sandwiches
Back to this Masters egg salad recipe, it’s simply delicious; a creamy combination of hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise (use Duke’s mayonnaise for that true Southern experience), mustard (you can leave this out but I like the extra oomph it adds), paprika, onion powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper! That’s it! It’s a super simple classic egg salad recipe.
You want your hard boiled eggs to be diced, so you can either use a sharp knife, a food processor or an electric mixer to chop them finely. Don’t worry if there are still pieces of hard boiled egg, it gives it texture and tastes delicious! That’s how I like my egg salad sandwiches!
If you want that true Masters sandwich experience, then fluffy white bread cut on the diagonal is the only way to go with your egg salad sandwiches! You’ll have as close to the real thing as you can get!
Now you can enjoy a traditional unlike any other… right in your living room! Homemade Famous Masters Egg Salad Sandwiches!
