While I was thinking about the creamy avocado dressing a few weeks ago the combination of avocados and mayonnaise got me to thinking about other things that it could be used in and the first thing that came to mind was an egg salad sandwich. Egg salads are normally made by mixing hard boiled eggs with mayonnaise to give it an addictively creamy nature and I figured that adding mashed up avocados could only make things better! Although using more traditional egg salad flavours sounded good, I could not resist once again going with the flavours of guacamole with lime juice and cilantro to brighten things up and the jalapeno chilies to add a hint of spicy heat. Adding the avocados to an egg salad sandwich like this was even more amazing than I thought it would be and I am now completely smitten with these sandwiches!
If you already have the hard boiled eggs cooked and ready to go these sandwiches are as easy to make as mixing all of the guacamole egg salad ingredients and then assembling the sandwiches.
Avocados and bacon are a match made in heaven and the addition of bacon makes this sandwich even more irresistible!
