All of you who have hard-boiled eggs in your fridge from Easter, this one’s for you!

This is what I call a grown-up egg salad sandwich. I used to love egg salad as a kid, but as I got older something about the heavy mayo goop just turned me off. That is until I tried this version. It’s a bit lighter than your average egg salad and it has an unexpected ingredient; lemon zest. The lemon gives it a bright, fresh, flavor you don’t expect, but it compliments everything so well. So don’t leave it out! Plus, this has bacon on it. And what meal isn’t better with bacon?? It’s easy to whip up, so give it a shot.

All you need:

Rolls, sour cream, mayo, dijon mustard, pepper, hard-boiled eggs, lettuce, bacon, tomato, onion, lemon.

    This is going to be our Easter dinner this year for sure. What could be better … using up eggs and easy!!?

    If you happen to see this … wondering if there is a difference between scallions and green onions? I've seen a few recipes lately for scallions and your egg salad reminded me I was never able to find them in the grocery store. I've always just substituted green onions but started wondering if there may be a better way? Since you are my new cooking resource I figured you gals would know if there is something to it.

    LOVE the blog … Happy Easter 🙂

    Scallions and green onions are the same thing! So if you ever see either one in a recipe it's talking about the same thing.

    This looks incredible! I had never thought to add lemon zest or a little vinegar to egg salad. I can’t wait to make these sandwiches.

    I usually just add crumbled bacon and chopped tomato right into the egg salad and serve it on toast. This is so much prettier! LOL, my family is going to wonder why I’ve turned all fancy on them when I do it this way next time. 😉

    The lemon zest in the egg salad makes it the best egg salad I’ve had. Ever. It’s amazing how something so simple makes such a difference.

    This is easily my favorite egg salad recipe! I use my mushroom press to chop the eggs, slice them one way and turn just a bit and slice again. So fast and easy.
