I love hard boiled eggs but seeing as how I am the only one in my family that does, Easter presents an overload for us. So today I thought I’d make this loaded keto egg salad.
To be honest this is the first time I’ve made and eaten egg salad and it’s awesome! I wanted to make something just a step up from the classic egg salad recipe so I added my favorite “loaded” ingredients which were crunchy bacon, cheese and green onions.
It turned out great but one of the things I did that I think added to the taste was to grate the eggs. It was much easier than chopping them and insured equals sized pieces.
The 5 ingredients I used.
I used simple ingredients that I would use in any “loaded” recipe such as crumbled crispy bacon slices, green onion, mayonnaise, sharp cheddar cheese and of course hard boiled eggs.
As I’m writing this I’m thinking I could also use sour cream instead of mayo for the full loaded experience but mayo worked well so maybe next time I’ll try that.
How to make loaded keto egg salad.
Step 1: Peel your hard boiled eggs and gather the ingredients. Chop the green onions very finely, crumble the bacon and shred the cheddar cheese.
Step 2: Using a hand grater, grate the eggs into a medium sized mixing bowl. The grating makes sure the yolk and white of the egg gets cut into equal pieces and makes for a creamy egg salad.
Step 3: Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Taste it and if you think it needs a bit of salt add a bit and the refrigerate for 20 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days. (Please scroll down to view the printable recipe card.)
