We had these for breakfast. It was a nice little treat! Ok, so no tomato on mine, but I just can't eat them. I liked the addition of sour cream to the egg salad. It added a little extra to the flavor. I liked the green onions too. I only used about 2 tablespoons. Also I used all eight eggs, yolks and all. Thanks for a great breakfast!

This was a yummy lunch!! I love blts and love egg salad, too, but had never thought of putting the two together. I used a low fat tortilla instead of bread and turkey bacon to cut down a little more on fat. :) Thanks, rickoholic83! :)
