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 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 😉

  4. These were sooo yummy! I also made them for dinner with left over Died Easter Eggs! We loved it and I shared it on my blog! Hope that’s ok.
    p.s. I have asked for your cookbook for Mothers Day! I’m so excited!

  5. 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.

  6. I made this tonight for dinner- super yum! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes!! I was SO sick of the same 5 or 6 things every week and I'm having fun menu planning off your blog 😀
