Best Bacon And Egg Salad Recipe

egg salad horizontal

Egg salad sandwiches have always been a staple in our house. They are the perfect lunch but I enjoy them at breakfast as well. I have updated the traditional egg salad sandwich recipe to include a favorite at my house – bacon. In addition to crispy bacon, using dijon mustard instead of regular yellow mustard really brings the flavor up a notch making this the best bacon and egg salad recipe you will ever make.

Instructions

Cut the hard boiled egg in half, remove the egg yolk. Chop the egg white into small pieces and set aside. 

  • Tip: To make boiling eggs easier (I always over boil) use an [easyazon_link identifier=”B00004UE75″ locale=”US” tag=”thinoutsthesa-20″]Norpro Egg Rite Egg Timer[/easyazon_link]. You can also make chopping easier with an [easyazon_link identifier=”B00FYL4MY0″ locale=”US” tag=”thinoutsthesa-20″]OXO Good Grips Egg Slicer, White/Black[/easyazon_link]. They take up very little room but will make you look like a pro chef. The egg slicer can also be used for other small iten such as mushrooms and strawberries. 

In a medium bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon, egg yolks and seasonings. Mix well until creamy and smooth. 

  • For even more taste variety use flavored dijons. There are lots of varieties available.

Heat a skillet over medium heat, add the bacon and cook until crispy. Drain on a paper towel. Let cool. 

Add the bacon and egg whites to the bowl.  Mix well. For a chunkier egg salad use a fork instead of a spoon to mix. 

Store in the refrigerator covered for 2-3 days.
