Egg Salad BLT’s

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.

Egg Salad BLT’s


These classic egg salad BLTs are delicious any time of the year, but they are an especially fantastic way to use up extra hard boiled eggs around Easter!


1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
3 tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
8 hard boiled eggs
4 Rolls, (or 8 slices peasant bread/firm sandwich bread), toasted
8 bacon slices, cooked
8 slices tomato
4 large lettuce leaves

*if you like it extra tangy, add a teaspoon of vinegar, too


Combine mayo, sour cream, green onions, Dijon, salt, pepper, and lemon in a medium bowl. Stir to combine well.

Coarsely chop eggs and add to mayo mixture. Stir gently to combine.

Arrange rolls or bread on work surface. Top each bread slice with about 1/2 cup egg mixture, 2 bacon slices, 2 tomato slices, a lettuce leaf, and top half of roll. Serve sandwich immediately.

  1. 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 🙂

  2. Sara, I love this blog! I blog stalked you through Erika’s blog. I’ve been bad about cooking since having the baby but your blog is motivating me and giving me ideas.
