This Deluxe Egg Salad, which has become crazy popular on Facebook and Pinterest, thanks to you!
If you love egg salad, then I highly recommend you try it based on no just my opinion, but a slew of others who have left great reviews on it.
What I love most about egg salad, is that it’s a year round food.
However, this Deluxe Egg Salad isn’t like all the other’s you’ve tried, it has cream cheese in it.
Why is that?
I have found that the cream cheese adds a tasty flavor as well as helps to hold the egg salad together so it’s not so squishy drippy.
It also has grated onions which really add flavor without big chunks of onions!
Sure we all eat Egg Salad A LOT around Easter, but it’s also makes for a fantastic lunch or dinner.
Just think of all the possibilities!
Egg salad is perfect for a picnic, boating, fishing, appetizer, baby shower, wedding, tail gate party or any gathering.
In my home, I am the only person who likes egg salad – sound familiar?
My husband, on the other hand, has never cared for it and my kids refuse to try it.
So if I’m going to make it for just me, I’m going to make it good and the way I like it.
This Deluxe Egg Salad recipe is my favorite.
It’s simple, easy to make and made with ingredients that I usually have on hand.
Sometimes I like to add a little dill pickle to my egg salad, and other times a little paprika.
Either way, this Deluxe Egg Salad is delicious and you should really try it.
Oh and if you don’t know a good hard boiled egg recipe, check this one out!
Update: I added two slices of bacon to the top and a slice of leafy lettuce and oh man was it good.
Just another addition to really make this egg salad really pop!
