So I thought I would mix up the routine a bit and replace the standard mayo with egg salad, that's gotta be good, right? Right. The only thing I will say is that is tastes more like an egg salad sandwich with bacon, rather than a BLT with egg salad. If you're having a serious BLT hankering, you better just stick with the tried and true. This is really good though, I loved it! Justin ate his egg salad as a side so he could savor his bacon all by it's lonesome though :)
For the egg salad:
8 hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup fat free mayo
3 T thinly sliced green onions (these make it great!)
3 T fat free sour cream
2 T dijon mustard
1 t freshly ground black pepper
Cut your eggs up into small pieces and combine all other ingredients together. This is a standard egg salad recipe but very tasty!
Everyone knows how to make a BLT...cook your bacon, slice your maters, throw on some lettuce. I usually use turkey bacon but since we have this darn hog in the freezer, Justin won't settle for the better for you stuff at this moment...once it is gone though, I just don't buy real bacon and he doesn't have a problem with that.
I used Italian loaf from Wal-Mart for the bread. If you've never tried it before, Wal-Mart has surprisingly good fresh baked bread, I go there just for that sometimes. I threw it in the oven to toast and then added a layer of egg salad before throwing on my B, my L, and my T. I really thought it was a great replacement for mayo, or I guess it's an addition to mayo since there's mayo in the egg salad. This was a HUGE sandwich, I would need thinner slices of bread next time, but this is a make again for me.
I plan on throwing some tuna in the leftover egg salad so Justin has tuna salad sandwiches for lunch. I love recipes that make my life easier :)
