Bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon, ahhhhh, bacon! Bacon is one of those ingredients that can totally make a difference when added to any recipe. It’s savory flavor is like no other.
Well today is #internationalbaconday . Bacon is most definitely worthy of a day of celebration. It is wonderful by itself but great as an ingredient too!
In celebration, I have a great bacon egg salad sandwich for you all. I love egg salad but this one is “dank” (according to my oldest son). The egg salad itself is elevated by the addition of cream cheese to help with the creaminess factor.
It also incorporates fresh chives and shredded cheese. This adds to the savory flavor of the salad, but then there’s bacon. The bacon is really what takes this egg salad from great to amazing. It is best mixed in right before preparing the sandwiches so it can maintain it’s crunchy texture.
I also have 23 other amazing bacon recipes for you to add to this day of celebration. If egg salad isn’t your thing, I am positive you can find one recipe in the collection that will tempt you.
- 4 oz softened reduced fat cream cheese
- 3 Tbsp mayonnaise ( I use reduced fat)
- ½ tsp salt
- pepper to taste
- 6 hard boiled eggs, diced
- 2 Tbsp diced chives
- ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
- 4 large croissants, split
- In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mayo, salt, and pepper until combined and creamy.
- Add in the egg, chives, and cheese. Fold until combined. Store in the fridge at this point if needed.
- Just before serving fold in the bacon and serve in croissants. Makes 4.
