Fancy Deli Style Egg Salad

14 comments:
an egg is just an egg 
and egg salad can be pretty ho hum
this is an adaptation of egg salad that is velvety and rich 

It can be served for brunch or packed for a picnic when you want to splurge 
....wonderful with an ice cold beer too

Hard-boil 6 eggs and cook 4 (actually 5 because I always eat a slice:) 
slices 
of good quality thick bacon

 finely mince a nice shallot, about 2 tablespoons

 combine 1/4 cup mayonnaise 
1 Tbl dijon mustard
1 Tsp dried tarragon
1 Tsp vinegar
pepper to taste...salt is optional because the bacon is salty


 dice up 6 lovely hard cooked eggs and add to your mayonnaise mixture 
along with the diced bacon bits
  add a few shots of tabasco if that sounds good
 your salad should be chunky and not overly dressed 
 this is great in a wrap
 but use what you have
 finely slice some crisp iceberg lettuce and top with about 1/2 cup of egg salad
 I topped the salad with fresh pea shoots too

 roll up and enjoy!!!!


iced coffee for me please
(I drink waaaayyyy to much caffeine)

  3. Sounds delicious. I think I need one of those egg slicers; I had one decades ago, but it is one of those "what ever happened to" mysteries.

  5. Dare I say it? I'm practically drooling @ 6:30-ish in the a.m.! And I, too, drink too many caffeinated bevs! I can quit any time I want, though! ;-)
