Bacon Jalapeño Egg Salad Sandwiches
Egg salad reminds me of my childhood. I pretty much hated all foods that weren’t cookies or brownies when I was younger, but if you smeared mayo on anything, I’d eat it. So I loved chicken salad, egg salad, and surprisingly even tuna salad. I remember when I was back in high school and HATED IT so much that I would leave at lunch to eat with my dad almost every day since his work was down the street. Maybe I was a bit dramatic. Ok, I still am. But my dad would pack egg salad sandwiches every day. Life was awesome. Especially with giant pieces of bread. That was the only positive that came out of my high school experience: egg salad sandwiches. Fact.
Remember when I made bacon jalapeño deviled eggs? Well these sandwiches were inspired by those little guys.
Did you know that yesterday was National Pancake Day? And Fat Tuesday. That’s ironic.
In honor of National Pancake Day, since I had eaten pancakes on Monday, I ate ice cream topped with caramel. From the caramel sauce I had made for my Caramel Apple Pancakes. Makes perfect sense to me. I want to swim in that caramel sauce. And bathe. And almost drown but then eat my way to the surface and survive. Yep. That’s what I want to do.
So I’ve had some kind of stomach bug recently. Not the kind that makes you stay in your house because you have to run to the loo every other minute, but the kind that makes you stay in your house because moving out of the fetal position is incredibly painful. It makes it challenging to do things. Like cook. Or eat. I had to make some food with cauliflower the other day and I about threw up just from the smell. So my sickness has made my senses even more intense. And please do not joke around that I’m pregnant. I’m not. And that’s not funny. People always think that answer is so clever. False. I think my sickness has also given me a bad attitude. My bad.
My mom nicknamed me loo. She still calls me that to this day. Is she implying something?Print
Bacon Jalapeño Egg Salad Sandwiches
- Yield: 2 1x
- 2 biscuits
- 4 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
- 6 eggs
- 2–3 tablespoons homemade mayo or Primal Kitchen
- 1 tablespoon minced jalapeño
- 1 teaspoon minced chives
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh dill
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
- hot sauce, to garnish (optional)
- Make biscuits. You will need two for this recipe.
- While biscuits are cooking, bring a large pot of water to boil. Once the water is boiling, place eggs in the water and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from water and place in a bowl of cold water to help cool. Once cool, remove the shell.
- While eggs cool, cook bacon in oven or on stove top. Let cool then chop into small pieces.
- In a large bowl, place chopped bacon, peeled eggs, mayo, jalapeño, chives, dill, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.
- Mix well. Add more mayo, if needed.
- Cut warm biscuits open and stuff full with egg salad. I even topped my sandwiches with hot sauce, because hot sauce is wonderful with eggs.

I want to put that in my face somewhere in the vicinity of NOWNOWNOW. Luckily, I have something equally delicious for lunch — leftover pizza spaghetti pie!
And no, “maybe you’re pregnant” is never funny. Like even if you’re actively trying to get pregnant (at least, I would imagine).
Adding bacon to egg salad…brilliant. Why didn’t I think of that?? Totally going to make this.
I call my daughter Loo, too! I have no idea why.
Man, we live strangely parallel lives. I love me some egg salad, and I lived off tuna salad my entire first year of grad school.
Egg salad was one hundred percent my childhood food too. My grandma made it for me all the time and her’s was the best. My great aunt tried once but there were egg shells in it – I don’t think egg shells are paleo …
Thx for the recipeeeee
I think it’s National Pancake Day because it’s Fat Tuesday — the English, Irish and a lot of Europeans call Fat Tuesday Pancake Tuesday and celebrate it as such 🙂 It started as a way to use up all the eggs, cream, etc. before giving those foods up for Lent. I had no idea until I lived in Ireland and everyone got so excited about Pancake Tuesday!
Oh man. Egg salad. I’m a purist when it comes to egg salad (just a little mustard and pickle relish), but this looks so good that I might need to try it. Yum!
Hope you feel better…
This looks awesome. Thank you for all the great recipes, you have made the transition to Paleo much easier than I ever thought. The spaghetti pie and sweet potato biscuits are our favorites so far.
Any substitution for mayo you can recommend? Mustard perhaps?
that would bring on a very different taste but that would work
If you’re not strict paleo, Greek yogurt often works well, too.
That sickness has been spreading like wild fire around my office! It was the weirdest bug. I felt like crap leaving work at 4pm on Monday and was nauseous and throwing up all night and most of the next day. Then by Tuesday night it was fine. Smells were so intense and nauseating. I knew I wasn’t pregnant, but I remember thinking “if this is anything like morning sickness, no thanks.” Bleck! Feel better.
….Did you ever think that maybe you’re pregnant?
I’m just kidding! I hate when people say that to me. Sorry that you’re stomach feels bad. Drinking ginger ale helps. Hope you feel better soon!
I HATE the pregnancy thing too, so lame. It’s always the first response to ANY claims of sickness, it definitely gets old! Hope you feel better.
I think being on the paleo diet in general gets me weird suspecting looks. Its like you cannot be a female and go out and eat organic and skip the alcohol without being pregnant.
I realize this is a ridiculous request but I just learned about Irish car bomb cupcakes today and really want to make them for st Patrick’s day. Would like to make them as paleo as possible though .. Would love it if u posted a recipe!! 🙂
I’ve been tricking my husband into eating paleo thanks to your recipes. THIS is going into his lunchbox tomorrow. I diffuse peppermint essential oils and rub them on my kids tummies when they have the flu. Works like a charm.
I love you!! Hope you feel better soon . Peppermint oil does wonders.
I LOVE EGG SALAD!!!! and that is THEE most beautiful egg salad sandwich I have ever laid my eyes on.
I just may make this my phone wallpaper.
Every time I look at one of your recipes and I click on a highlighted INGRED. it takes me to another YUMMY recipe and so on and so on….Thank you for all yumminess you are sharing!!!!
I make a similar egg salad but I put a few toasted, chopped pecans in mine. Yum!
This is another fantastic recipe. Just made it, and the dinner rolls from Paleospirit.com…YUMMERS! I’ve never been a fan of eggs, but I LOVE this recipe!
I made this today and it was absolutely AhMazing!!!
I feel ya on the hating high school thing (your emphasis with all caps) I left at almost every lunch to go play my guitar all by myself. I’m homeschooling my kids, cus who wants to go through that! The establishments aren’t really set up to support creative kids with alternative learning styles (you, obviously) ……glad u didn’t let the bastards get ya down! Your blog wins!
So I’m cooking all of my meals for the week and my biscuits just came out of the oven and I thought I would sneak one bite and ended up eating an entire half. Glad I doubled the recipe! Soooooo good. Juli is the shizzle.
I would really love to Pin this recipe, but it only brings up 3 pics of you, none of the food … so, while you’re lovely, I was wondering if this is a setting or something you could change? That may be why this recipe has no shares?
are you clicking the P button on the photo? because i’ve tried everything and it only pops up the photo of the recipe i’m trying to pin
