Egg Salad and Bacon Sandwich Recipe

Egg Salad and Bacon Sandwich Recipe

On days I don’t have much time to cook, egg salad on croissants hits the spot. It's also nice made with toasted bread or English muffins. Our family loves egg dishes of any kind. Luckily, my mom owns 30 chickens and keeps me supplied with farm-fresh ingredients.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 10 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  • 8 lettuce leaves
  • 8 croissants, split


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Add eggs and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve on lettuce-lined croissants. Yield: 8 servings.

"Halved the recipe and made with fat free sour cream, turkey bacon, and fresh garlic chives. Served on homemade bread. Tastes like my mom's Fake-Eggs' Benedict in a salad form. Quite tasty."

"Making egg salad sandwiches for a light supper tonight; husband down with **flu**, and these sound good to him. Serving soup alongside. He generally has a hearty appetite and loves most everything. Am blessed with a man who is not **picky**. Growing up, my older brother was as picky as they come and my Mom had hard time satisfying him sometimes."
