Loaded Avocado Egg Salad

One of the classics from my childhood is egg salad. I was mayo-obsessed as a kid… ok kinda still am. and The idea of a loaded up egg situation with mayo was always up my alley.
As I was brainstorming some Easter recipes to get out there for you guys, I couldn’t help but go back to that classic egg salad. What if I put my own spin on it, loaded it up with tons of flavor, and re-made it into an epic egg salad that makes all the egg salads kinda jealous.
So, I took it upon myself to experiment and do just that. People, we have an egg salad with mashed avocado, sweet bits of dried cranberries, salty bits of bacon, some herby additions, oh and some onion for good measure.
I took one bite and made a bunch of yummy noises. Delicious, I tell you. Delicious! Whether you make this as an addition to your Easter table, or are just casually making it for your workday lunches, it’s one of those elevated recipes that brings a smile to your face.
It has all the nostalgia. All the charm and ease of traditional egg salad. Yet, it’s got a little something extra. Because sometimes extra is exactly what everyone needs.
Place the eggs in a pot filled with water and bring to a boil. Boil for 8 minutes and then drain. Place the eggs right into a bowl filled with cold water and ice. Keep the fridge filled until
Use a knife or egg cutter to cut the eggs into small cubes. Place them in a large bowl along with the avocado, dried cranberries, cut bacon, red onion, chives, mayo (if using), salt and pepper.
Use two butter knifes to criss-cross cut the avocado and mix up the ingredients. Use a rubber spatula to fold everything together. Scoop it onto your toast, your salad, or just into a small bowl. Top with additional chopped chives and enjoy!
