Egg Salad with Bacon and Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing

Growing up, the only thing worse than finding tunafish in my lunchbox was finding egg salad there.

And the real problem was that I (and everyone else) knew it was there even before I opened my lunch. (Such is the problem of potent-smelling sandwiches when you’re a kid!)

So believe me when I tell you that egg salad is a newly acquired taste for me.

But my version of egg salad is so different from what I grew up with, it’s hard to even call it the same thing.

For starters, let’s talk about texture. I know a lot of people who like their egg salad mashed into oblivion (my mom included). I prefer mine with some texture. For the most part, I just chop the hard-boiled eggs, and mash up literally just a couple of pieces of yolk.

Now, as far as flavor goes, I like my egg salad with a super flavorful dressing. (Because let’s face it, egg salad can sometimes be bland.)

Honey mustard and a few spices liven up my version, and so does the addition of bacon for smokiness.

How to Eat Egg Salad

Of course egg salad is a classic sandwich filling, but I also enjoy eating it open-faced on a slice of good bread.

And here are a few more ideas on how to eat egg salad:

  • On a bed of lettuce
  • As a wrap
  • On toast
  • Put it in a bento box along with some cheese, nuts, pickles, and vegetables like sliced cucumber, carrots, or celery
