Every single time I tell my dad I’m eating egg salad he go on about how he can’t stand the stuff. To be fair he hates all types of mayo salad – tuna salad, chicken salad, ham salad…he hates them all. Me? I could eat my weight in any of those! They are quick to throw together, last a few days in the fridge (which means I can make them in bulk!) and taste pretty damn good.

Who’s with me?

This avocado egg salad BLT is the perfect spring time sandwich. Hard boiled eggs and creamy avocado pilled high on a croissant with bacon, lettuce and tomato.

Since I had a ton of leftover hard boiled eggs from Easter.

Ok. This is a lie. I had to make hard boiled eggs for this post. True confession time – I have never ever dyed Easter eggs. We never did that as a kid and now that I’m an adult I feel like the moment has passed. Plus I can’t be the weirdo adult trying egg dying for the first time at 33 years old. It’s like that time I tried carving my first pumpkin at 28 – it was messy and gross and felt as though maybe I was just too old.

I know. I never carved pumpkins either. Or dressed up and trick or treated for Halloween. Or was allowed to believe in Santa. Basically my childhood was just me being jealous of every other child in the neighborhood.

So because most of you probably had normal childhoods that involved dying Easter eggs I assume you have lots of hard boiled eggs just sitting around waiting to be used. Thats where this recipe comes in handy. Not only is it egg salad but it’s avocado egg salad! Hello delicious!

This baby is super creamy and uses even less mayo than the traditional stuff because avocado is pretty darn creamy on its own. Then I put it on a butter croissant and topped it with baby mixed greens, sliced tomato and super crispy bacon. This sandwich screams spring and is the perfect lunch or dinner treat!

    I react the same way your dad does when I think of Egg Salad. But I LOVE chicken salad. Egg yolks give me the willies.

    But this looks great. I’d just swap the egg salad for chicken salad!

    Now that’s a gorgeous egg salad BLT and like that you’ve used more avocado in it for the creaminess. I’m with you about the egg dying…I haven’t done it either it wasn’t something we did as kids. I didn’t really start liking hard boiled eggs until I was an adult. 🙂 Beautiful, tasty and deliciously styled BLT!

    Genius recipe – can’t wait to do this – avocado, egg salad, bacon??!!
    I did dye eggs for Easter as a child but – slacker mom of the year – totally forgot to dye eggs with my own children this year. I didn’t carve pumpkins when I was little, however, and developing that skill in your 30s seems totally weird. I am with you on that.

    I like that this egg salad is less mayo. I have a ton of dyed eggs in the fridge. This looks SO good! BLT is the icing on the cake! LOVE bacon!

    I’m totally with you when it comes to mayo based sandwich fillings. Bring it!
    I do love however that you’ve cut part of the mayo usage with the creamy avocado. This may be one of the prettiest (and tastiest) looking egg salad sandwiches that I have ever seen.

    we didn’t color eggs this year, which is strange because we have SO many eggs – but I’ll hard boil a few just to make this blt!

    I’ve never dyed eggs either, so I feel you girl! I swear I’ll do it next year, even though I may look like a fool doing it.

    Avocado egg salad…sounds SO good. You have a good trifecta sandwich going here with the croissant, bacon, and avocado egg salad!
