The World's Best Egg Salad (3 Ways)

Recipe by dojemi
READY IN: 30mins


  • 8
    large eggs, hard boiled
  • 4
    tablespoons mayonnaise (more, or less, to taste)
  • 12
    teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 12
    cup finely chopped onion, more if you love onions (optional)
  • 1 12
    tablespoons canola oil
  • 4
    slices freshly made crisp bacon, crumbled (optional)


  • Mash the hard-boiled eggs. Don't mash them too fine.
  • If using onions, heat the oil in a skillet and add the onions. Sautee until they turn golden brown.
  • Add the onions or bacon (or for the ultimate version, both!), mayonnaise, and salt to the chopped eggs and mix thoroughly.
  • Taste and adjust the level of salt. If you like a creamier texture, add a little more mayonnaise.
  • Serve in a bowl if using as a brunch spread. If serving as a lunch salad, surround a generous scoop with lettuce, tomato wedges, and sliced cucumbers.
  • Enjoy!
