  2. Peel and chop the eggs:
    • Peel the hard-boiled eggs and chop them into small pieces.
  3. Make the egg salad:
    • In a bowl, combine the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, and mustard (if using).
    • Mix well until the ingredients are evenly combined.
    • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Assemble the sandwich:
    • Toast the bread slices if desired.
    • Place a generous amount of the egg salad onto one slice of bread.
    • If you like, add lettuce leaves and tomato slices on top of the egg salad.
    • Top with another slice of bread to complete the sandwich.
  5. Serve and enjoy:
    • Slice the sandwich if desired and serve immediately.
