Bacon and Egg Salad


I don’t have good luck with egg salad, so decided I would try once more time when I saw this recipe in the Ultimate Southern Living cookbook. It is a little different in that it has crisp bacon crumbled up in it and horseradish added. I used some horseradish mustard I had instead of the horseradish. Taste before adding all of the horseradish it calls for if using regular horseradish. It is strong and you might not want quite that much.
  We don’t like it soupy so I made the dressing, added a little better than half to it and kept the rest and some of the bacon to add before we ate. It said the bacon would soften some when it was chilling.
  This worked quite well. The flavor is great, the bacon was good in it. I didn’t add any more dressing to it. It would depend on how soupy you like your egg salad. It made a quick and easy meal.
