I probably saw this on Pinterest or something. But the idea popped into my head to make this. I love egg salad. But I am extremely picky about it and have to make it myself. Nothing is more repulsive than pre-made slimy egg salad sandwiches.
Even more importantly, nothing is more disappointing than when you send your husband to the fridge in the birthing unit’s patient kitchen to find you something to eat in the middle of the night because you are starving, exhausted, in pain, fiddling around in the dark attempting to breastfeed your one day old baby… and he comes back to report there is nothing there except a few lonely egg salad sandwiches. No thanks. I’ll starve. Thank goodness there was a grocery store nearby and for kind friends who delivered all my favourite foods to me from the other end of the city. Hospital food sucks. Especially sketchy egg salad on wonder bread. Anyhow…
The pic is kinda crappy, and no progress photos because posting this was an after thought, but make it anyway. Ok?
Avocado, egg and bacon salad – this made three servings, served on lettuce as pictured
- 5 hard boiled eggs, chopped
- 2 small avocados, chopped
- a few slices of bacon, chopped and cooked
- 1/4c of homemade mayo
- Salt and pepper
- a squirt of lime juice and chopped cilantro (optional)
Mix it all up and enjoy! If you want to save it or pack it in your lunch, put it in a sealed container and press plastic wrap right up against it. This will help reduce the browning from the avocado. Yummy.
