Delicious Egg Salad with Bacon

Sometimes I crave egg salad SO badly. There are a million recipes floating around but I always just throw a bunch of stuff together. My egg salad recipe is nothing revolutionary, but it's yummy. It is also super-fattening, but as long as you eat it in moderation, it's not that bad.

I'm also curious to hear how other people make egg salad...

Delicious Egg Salad with Bacon

Delicious Egg Salad with Bacon


1 dozen eggs
6 slices bacon
5 or so tbsp mayonaise (I don't know the exact measurement)
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper


Hard boil your eggs.
While the eggs are cooking, fry up the bacon. Once it is finished and has cooled off a bit, dice it into very small pieces.
Dice the onion.
When the eggs are done cooking, rinse them under cold water for five minutes. Peel them and put them into a large bowl.
Mash the eggs with the back of a fork until they are nice and smooshed into small pieces.
Add the mayo until it is at the desired consistency.
Add salt, pepper, and paprika to taste.
Add onions and bacon, stir until evenly combined.
Chill for at least an hour, then eat! I like mine on wheat toast or inside a wheat pita.

Mmmmm, I love dijonnaise. That's what I make my devilled eggs with. _________________________ "I can’t believe it." "That is why you fail." :yoda:

I love egg salad, too. I make mine a couple different ways, depending on my mood. Usually, I make it with dijonnaise, which combines the mustard and mayo in the perfect amount.

We use mayo and mustard, a little celery, and I seem to remember vinegar? for some reason. But maybe that's deviled eggs. But mayo and mustard and celery for sure. I usually go easy on the onion because I'm not a big fan of raw onions.

We use bacon bits in a pinch!

That's just a teeny bit of plain yellow mustard or a little pinch of powdered mustard.

I never measure and I make it the same except add a little mustard and no onion or bacon. Bacon does sound good though :DROOL:

Yum! Bacon sounds like a great addition to an egg salad! When making mine, i never put any onion or celery, i like my egg salad smooth.
