Start boiling eggs – my trick to boiling eggs is start with putting eggs in water right away and then turn burner on high. Keep an eye on them because once the eggs start boiling – you boil them for 12 minutes to have the perfect hard boiled egg. After 12 minutes, immediately gets eggs under cold running water and once completely cooled start peeling the eggs.

Chop up eggs into bowl and add mayo, relish, mustard, onion, tabasco, and salt/pepper to taste. Add egg salad to your bread and finish the plate with some fresh garden tomatoes.

Put on griddle/grill and give a good sear to each side of the steak.
