Bacon Jalapeno Egg Salad
Couldn’t be simpler. We’re heading into the school year, and I’m in search of easy yet (of course) tasty lunch recipes that fit in with my health goals, and here’s a prime example. Lunch boxes (with cooler pack) at the ready.
BACON JALAPENO EGG SALAD
6 large eggs, hard boiled
1/2 cup mayonnaise (preferably homemade, as in here or here!)
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
3 scallions, chopped (both whites and greens)
1 teaspoon brown mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
4-5 pieces bacon, cooked and chopped or crumbled
Mash the eggs together with a fork to desired chunkiness. Stir in remaining ingredients except bacon (keep separate if you can, for texture purposes; but if you need to put it all together in advance, it’ll still be fine). Chill together at least an hour before serving. Stir in bacon right before consuming, optimally.
