While traditional egg salad is always reliably delicious (and the ways Hubs prefers it), I often like to experiment with add-ins. In this variation I loved the additions of the fresh dill and chives, and bacon almost guaranteed this would be a winner. I did use mayonnaise rather than Miracle Whip (haven't had Miracle Whip since I was a kid) and I could see as I was adding the mustard (I used all Dijon) and the salt that the amounts of both were going to be too much for me. I used about half of what was called for and that was right for us - better to add little by little and taste to adjust. It wouldn't be egg salad without chopped celery for us so I added some. Rather than a sandwich, I used this for a light supper: a bed of lettuce dressed with a Lemon-Dijon vinaigrette and topped with a scoop each of this egg salad, cottage cheese and tuna salad.
Love egg salad and loved this version of it. Scaled this down to 2 servings for lunch sandwiches today. The addition of the bacon and the dill really do make this special.
I don't keep Miracle Whip in the house, I used Hellman's mayonnaise instead. I had half of one red onion to use up, I ended up throwing in the whole thing. To add a little more crunch, I threw in about a half cup of chopped fresh celery. I did not have kaiser rolls, I used whole wheat bread. Out of one recipe, I was able to get five sandwiches worth of filling. Everyone really liked it, my husband asked me if I would make this again for his lunch this morning. I made this again but omitted the honey mustard the second time--he texted me that he liked it even more today.
After Easter egg decorating, we needed to do something with all the eggs. This recipe made all those eggs disappear in two days!Everyone loved it, and I only made slight adjustments. We are not purple onion fans, so that was left out. We also didn't have the exact mustard the recipe calls for, so I substituted a horseradish dijon for the regular dijon and added honey to the little regular dijon we had left...still turned out great. Definitely worth trying and adding your own flair!
It was pretty good but I am not a mustard person and this is very mustardy. I think next time I will use less mustard
I didn't have dijon or honey mustard. I subbed Russian mustard. Very good!'
