Cheddar Bacon Egg Salad


This is the best egg salad recipe ever and I think you’re going to love it! It’s loaded with bacon and cheddar!

Well, we moved. From Illinois to Nebraska.

Aaaaand, I’m officially living in the middle of nowhere, you guys.
This recipe for egg salad is loaded with bacon and cheddar. It makes a great egg salad sandwich!

Nebraska is basically just a bunch of wide open spaces, which sounds all nice and stuff. Butttttt…

Do you know what this means? Do you?

It means that I must prepare myself.

For what, you ask? Well, for all the things.

For breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, most importantly.

In the past, we were really bad about hitting up the drive thru for lunch.

Not every day, but a few times a week, at least. It was quick, it was easy, it was cheap.

Also, cooking three meals a day is just too much. For serious.

My egg salad sandwich recipe has saved me at lunch time on more than one occasion!

My kids are homeschooled, which is lovely, but it also means that I am responsible for every meal, every day. It can get to be a bit much.

Also, I don’t want to be the weirdo that admits to loving fast food, but…I kind of love fast food. Those french fries get me every time.

I don’t even hate the burgers. I know. It’s totally unpopular to admit that, but I gotta be me.

Do you have a love for fast food too? Say we’re still friends.

Wondering how to make egg salad that your whole family will love? Add bacon and cheddar! This is the best egg salad recipe ever!

Now that I’m in Middle of Nowhere, Nebraska?

I’m cooking three meals a day.

Lucky me, this egg salad sandwich recipe is not only easy, but tastes phenomenal.

It’s full of flavor from the bacon and cheddar, perfectly creamy from the hit of mayonnaise, and has just the right bite from the mustard.

I even ate this for breakfast today, which was not weird, because it’s basically bacon, eggs, and toast. Winning!

And when I say that we’re eating this allllll the time, I’m not kidding. We went through FIFTY-SIX EGGS in the first 10 days of living here.

Five. Six.

That is a lot of dang eggs, my friends.

This is the best egg salad recipe you’ll ever try! I mean, how could it not be? My recipe for egg salad is full of cheese and bacon.

More of my easy lunch favorites include bacon lo mein, baked chicken legs, and ham and bean soup.

So, whether you’re living in the middle of nowhere like me, with no place to go for lunch or a long drive to a grocery store, or you really love egg salad (also like me) this egg salad recipe is the one for you! You have to give it a try and let me know what you think! It’s so darn good!

Horseradish Egg Salad on open faced bagels! We love this brunch recipe!

I also have a horseradish egg salad that’s really good too! We serve it on bagels for a fun twist, but it’s really good in a sandwich.

And, true story, I eat low carb a lot of the time. That means no bread.

I eat this egg salad with a fork and have no regrets. It’s really good in a lettuce wrap as well!

Give this one a try and report back. Curious to hear what you think.
