This Egg Salad Sandwich Recipe (with Bacon) combines filling, tasty boiled eggs with creamy mayo, tangy mustard, zesty onion, crunchy celery, crispy bacon, and spices for a delicious combination that makes a perfect sandwich.
I can’t think of a more classic and tasty lunch than an egg salad sandwich or chicken salad sandwich.
This classic egg salad recipe is creamy, tangy, and has the added crispness and smokey flavor of bacon.
I may be biased, but this recipe makes the best sandwich that you will ever have!
This egg salad is also super easy to prepare. Make it ahead of time and have it in the fridge and ready to go in the morning for a quick and easy lunch.

How To Make an Egg Salad Sandwich
This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below.
Step 1: Chop or mash hard-boiled eggs to your desired consistency.
Step 2: In a bowl, combine the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, green onion, celery, salt, and pepper. Stir well.
Step 3: Spoon onto a bread or a bun and top with bacon and your favorite sandwich toppings.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You won’t want to freeze this egg salad. Once boiled eggs have been frozen and then thawed, the texture becomes a little rubbery. Mayonnaise also doesn’t freeze well.
Tip: Rather than make a sandwich and place it in the fridge for the next day, prepare the egg salad ahead of time and refrigerate it. Then assemble the sandwich hen ready to enjoy. Otherwise, you will have cold, soggy bread!
- Toast & butter your bread for an extra crunch and a pop of flavor.
- Add sliced tomato for an egg salad BLT.
- If you are a fan of dill add a bit to your egg salad. So yummy!
- Want to give your egg salad a little “kick”? Add a bit of horseradish, red pepper flakes, or your favorite hot sauce.
- For some extra creaminess, add in a few scoops of mashed avocado. This also gives you some healthy fats!
What to Serve/Pair with Your Egg Salad Sandwich
This Egg Salad Sandwich pairs with almost any side that you would eat with a sandwich. I like to pair mine with Kettle Cooked Chips or crunchy, fresh veggies.
You can also enjoy this egg salad on saltine crackers or ritz instead of bread. Sometimes I like to switch things up and eat mine on Wheat Thins.
If you want something fresh and healthy with your sandwich, try this Heirloom Tomato Salad on the side. It’s full of incredible flavors!
If you want something sweet to go with your sandwich, these Cherry Almond Granola Bars are sweet and tasty, and they’ll also help you stay full!
Sure! You can use prepared store bought eggs to save some time, or you can even boil yours in advance and have them in the fridge and ready to go.
To hard-boil your eggs at home, put your eggs into a large pot. Cover with water and put on the stove. Bring to a boil. Put the lid on the pot and turn off the heat. Cook for 15 minutes, then place eggs into an ice water bath to stop cooking and make the eggs easier to peel.
If you completely cool your eggs before using them, this eliminates a lot of the water, and your egg salad should not be watery.
