Bacon 'n' Egg Salad Sandwiches
Why I Love This Recipe
I forgot how much I love egg salad sandwiches. I saw this recipe and had extra eggs left over from holiday baking, so I whipped this up. I usually make a standard egg, mustard, mayo, dill salad. This adds bacon and capers to the mix too, with great results. I did use turkey bacon. Also, used more mustard and less low fat mayo to cut the fat. Always on whole grain bread. Great protien meal.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
3 tablespoons mayonnaise

4 slices sandwich bread

In a small bowl, combine the bacon, mayonnaise, mustard and capers. Add eggs; stir gently to combine. Spread over two slices of bread; top with lettuce and remaining bread. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.
