Bacon Avocado Egg Salad, not your everyday egg salad, made with egg, avocado, onion, celery, sour cream, cumin, salt, and pepper.
This bacon avocado egg salad is a change up from your typical everyday egg salad, there is no mayonnaise the avocado is added to replace the mayonnaise.
Mike and I love a good egg salad sandwich. I usually blend the eggs with salad dressing (Miracle Whip), salt, and pepper and possibly a bit of pickle relish. During Lent it is our typical go to lunch on Fridays, but during the year we will sneak in an egg sandwich here and there.
I am all for healthier recipes and I love the flavor of the eggs and the avocado, so it really was a no-brainer to change out the salad dressing/mayonnaise for the avocado. And you know what I really didn’t miss the salad dressing.
The avocado brings a refreshing new taste to my old favorite egg salad sandwich. I can bet that if you try this sandwich you will not miss the mayonnaise either.
