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.
