The World's Best Egg Salad (3 Ways)

The World's Best Egg Salad (3 Ways) created by Marie Nixon

I love egg salad and recently discovered this recipe. Quite different from the ordinary with the addition of fried onions and/or bacon.

Ready In:
30mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 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)

directions

  • 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!

    I made the version with onions. It was a 4-star for flavor but a 3 star for looks. Because the onions were sauteed until browned, the egg salad seemed to have a brownish tone to it when the onions got mixed in.
