Every so often I like to play around with egg salad to do something a little different from the traditional mayonnaise/celery thing. This was sensationally delicious! I used full fat sour cream and mayo, green onion other than the red, and real, crumbled bacon, but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written. And I will next time too! Looking over the reviews, if you omit bacon, omit onion, omit the mustard, etc.--are you really trying or reviewing THIS recipe? I like the addition of sour cream (I do in all my mayonnaise-based salads as well) as it mellows out the tang of the mayonnaise. I've used Dijon mustard before and love it, but it was the bacon and horseradish that really were this recipe's claim to distinction! Loved it!

I liked this, but it didn't blow my mind. Definitely different - I like things with a kick to it, so thanks for submitting.

Wow! This definitely is "Awesome Egg Salad"! My husband loves egg salad as do I and he loves bacon so I thought I'd give this a try. I'm so glad I did. This stuff was really good! I love horseradish and this definitely gave a nice twist to regular 'ol egg salad. I did replace the red onion with green onion and used smoked paprika instead of regular (just because I always have it in my pantry) and it was a nice compliment to the bacon. This was great on toasted bread and crackers. I would definitely make this again!

delicious! I also added some finely chopped celery to mine for some extra crunch!

I make this all the time. I have put the bacon in before, but prefer it without. I scale up or down the horseradish, depending on who I'm serving it to. I also love to add a bit of celery and some sliced green olives with pimentos. Excellent on toasted sourdough. Always a hit. I love to see people trying to figure out what's in it. Thanks.

This is without a doubt the best egg salad recipe I've had. I wanted to try something different and this truly fit the bill. Don't let anything out, especially the bacon. I didn't measure my ingredients and it turned out great. I put a little too much mustard in but that was my fault. I didn't think that I had Dijon mustard so I put spicy brown in and then found the Dijon so added more. It was still, as the title says, awesome egg salad!

Wow! Was this ever good! I scaled it way back because it was just lunch for me, so I may not have gotten the proportions exactly right but they were close. I used a piece of real bacon and onion powder since I didn't have red onion. Ate it in a pita, and finished wishing I had more. Yum!

AWESOME! I used 8 eggs (all I had), so I scaled to 1/4 cup + 1 TBS Mayo and 1/4 cup + 1 TBS Sour Cream. I used 2 tsp dry mustard powder because I didn't have any Dijon (I'll use Dijon next time). I used yellow onion, because that's what I had. I omitted the bacon (personal preference). Added 1 tsp dried dill weed. I too, thought that 1 teaspoon (rather than 1 TBS) prepared horseradish was sufficient for my taste, but hey, I am a coward.
