We loved this! My little boy (who is normally only interested in hot dogs and pb&j) said the "salad and bread" was delicious! BIG compliment from my little man! Plus, it was the perfect way to use up all those extra Easter eggs! I did as a PP suggested and used the smaller croissants, and they were just the right size. Thanks for a quick, simple, and delicious recipe!
Nice and basic. We followed the recipe as written and took a picture. I'd probably use small croissants as the large ones are a bit overwhelming.
I had some bacon to use up and did a search on this site and found this gem of a recipe. I served it as posted. I served it on croissants and also on low-carb tortilla shells as a wrap. I will use this as my egg salad recipe from now on. I served this along with Creamy Corn Salad, together it reminded me of summer time. Thank you for posting a wonderful recipe.
