Egg Mayo on Good Steroids

Egg mayo sandwiches are so freaking good. And better yet, super simple to make. You either love or hate it. Here in the Bouwer household, it is a favourite.

One of our favourite grocery stores sells egg mayo sandwiches. Being the huge egg fan that I am, I highly recommended it to my husband when we were stocking up on road-trip snacks. He was not convinced. After having a taste of my sandwich and ending up eating half of it, he finally understood my obsession.

How about combining all the favourites- egg, avocado and bacon, in one dish? This filling/topping is super duper delicious! You can make this a day in advance.

It is a perfect lunch option to make on meat-free Monday – just leave out the bacon. It would also work as a topping for bruschetta appetisers to serve at your next dinner party. Make it Banting-friendly by using Banting-friendly mayonnaise and use the crispy bacon as the ‘vessel’ or serving it on or with cucumber slices.
