I am looking forward to Labor Day weekend. Who doesn’t love a three day weekend? My plans are to stay local this year. Sometimes some relaxing time at home is just what you need! This weekend I will be taking it easy and whipping up some yummy comfort food. Like most Southerners, one of my favorite sandwiches is an egg salad sandwich. While I love a simple egg salad sandwich, a three day weekend calls for kicking it up a notch with bacon and tomatoes!

Ingredients:

  • 4 hard boiled eggs Egg Salad Sandwich | www.sweetteasweetie.com
  • 1/8 cup Mayo
  • 1/8 cup Sweet Relish
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Mustard
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 4 slices of potato bread (or your favorite bread)
  • 1 medium tomato or a handful of cherry tomatoes

Directions:

  1. Hard boil eggs and set aside to cool.Egg Salad Sandwich | www.sweetteasweetie.com
  2. Add bacon to a cold skillet. (I prefer to use a cast iron skillet.) Starting the bacon in a cold skillet will allow the fat more time to melt away, leaving you with perfect crispy bacon.
  3. Cook until crispy, approximately 8 minutes.
  4. When bacon reaches desired consistency, remove from skillet and place in paper towels to absorb extra grease.
  5. When cooled, crumble or chop up, and set aside.
  6. Peel cooled hard boiled eggs and place whole in a mixing bowl.
  7. Use a fork to mash the yolk up until there are no large pieces.
  8. Add in mayo, mustard, and relish. (Taste it at this point and add in more to suit your preference)
  9. Stir in crumbled bacon.
  10. Scoop egg mixture onto bread.
  11. Top with sliced tomatoes & serve!
