Why, oh why, have I never added bacon to my egg salad before this?!

I’ve added chopped bacon to deviled eggs, and to so many other breakfast and non-breakfast dishes in my lifetime. But my egg salad has never had this privilege. The only thing I can promise you now is that I’m ready to make up for lost time!

Eating in the Middle by Andie Mitchell

This breakfast recipe for egg salad with bacon comes from Andie Mitchell‘s book Eating in the Middle. I’ve had the pleasure to meet Andie in person, and it’s impossible to not be smitten by her joyful, unpretentious presence. She’s sweet as pie. 

I’m a believer in Andie’s philosophy about “eating in the middle”, where it’s all about balance. Her book includes beautiful recipes that are fresh and real and mostly wholesome, with an emphasis on big flavors.

But there’s also some splurging mixed in, like an indulgent peanut butter mousse pie with marshmallow whipped cream that I can’t stop thinking about. Because when you eat really well most of the time, a slice of peanut butter pie once in awhile is a reward worth waiting for.

If you’re not familiar with Andie’s story about her struggles with obesity, losing weight, and finding balance, be sure to check out her first book It Was Me All Along, a New York Times bestselling memoir.

Egg Salad with Bacon

Another thing that I love about Andie is that she’s not afraid to add a little bacon to her plate.

Amen.

Amen.

And Amen!!!

Those gloriously salty, smoky bites of bacon take egg salad to a whole new level. You simply must try this breakfast egg salad with bacon.

This bacon and egg salad recipe is creamy and flavorful, with a just-right mix of mayo, plain Greek yogurt, and Dijon mustard.

I added a bit of fresh arugula and tomato to my toasted breakfast sandwich, but feel free to just enjoy the egg salad with bacon all on its own. It’s really all you need.
