FABULOUS! I took it to a church function and it was gone!! I did two large tomatoes, 1 cucumber, green onions, 2 eggs, and 1/4 c. shredded parmesan...eveything that I had on hand. I added the crackers last and after 2 hours they were soggy but still good. SO EASY!

I used grape tomatoes and cut them in half, but otherwise made as is. I was a bit leary of this, thinking the crackers were a weird idea and would get all mushy. Well, it didn't get all mushy but it does definitely need to be eaten right away. I thought it was way too much mayo. I went ahead and put it all in because normally I think things are too dry and have too little of whatever dressing, but this was just too much. I rarely say that. It wasn't bad, but only a little was good... and I doubted it would be any good if I left the rest for later. So, I won't be making it again.

This is another comfort food for me. I first learned how to make this via Paula Deen(this is her recipe)and I make this about once a month. I usually add some Frank's and sometimes, shredded sharp cheddar. Make this right before you eat/serve it, it gets soggy easily.

Very good recipe (from Lady ahd Son's). When I saw her make it....I thought there was no way that this could be good...was I wrong. You do need to eat this right does not keep at all. Thanks for the recipe.

What a treat for my Southern family! Nice fresh, summery taste that's not spicy. Tastes like something my mom would have made when times were lean. This would have been 5 stars if not for the need for last-minute preparation. I doubled all the ingredients except the mayo, which I halved. Also added black pepper. I did assemble everything except for the crackers, then added those with each individual serving. I'd like to try this with sour cream instead of mayo, and serve as a spread for crackers of any kind.

This is phenomenal! Who knew??? I mixed everything except the crackers ahead of time. Crushed & added the crackers as we were lining up to eat. We loved it so much I'm making it for another get-together this weekend! Thank you!!!

Everyone, while they thought it was weird, loved it enough to have seconds! I think I'll add crisp bacon bits next time.

this is a good recipe, i was looking for a different egg salad recipe that i could make with not a lot of ingredients (its the night before my husband and i usually go grocery shopping so we were running low) & i liked the idea of putting crackers into it before serving. i normally eat egg salad with plain potato chips, but didnt have any and the crackers were a nice substitute. i didn't have any tomato, & i used a white onion rather than green. i also added in some bacon bits & used light miracle whip to taste. it was very, very good! thank you
