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.
