This Bacon Ranch Egg Salad is a classic that is now loaded with cooked and crumbled bacon and shredded cheddar cheese. It’s one of my favorite recipes for lunch.
Bacon Ranch Egg Salad
I love egg salad! This was something my mom made a lot growing up. It was simple and cheap, the perfect lunch for a family on a budget. As an adult, I still love making egg salad for lunch but I love dressing it up a little. This Bacon Ranch Egg Salad is one of my favorites. It’s loaded with cooked bacon, cheddar cheese, and ranch seasoning. I do add a secret ingredient that makes the egg salad so fluffy and creamy!
Egg Salad Ingredients:
- Whipped cream cheese (this is my secret weapon and how I get my egg salad to be so fluffy!)
- Mustard (yellow)
- Ranch seasoning
- Green onions
- Cheddar Cheese
Egg Salad Instructions:
Step one: Start by boiling your eggs. Once they are done you peel them and then set them aside.
Step two: Place whipped cream cheese, mayonnaise, mustard, and ranch seasoning in a mixing bowl and mix together.
Step three: Place boiled eggs in your mixing bowl with your base. Use a fork to mash and mix together. Add green onions, cooked and crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese and mix well.
Boiling an Egg:
Knowing when your egg is ready can be tricky. I shared a post on a fool-proof way to get the perfect egg each time and how I make peeling even easier, you can find that at How to Boil an Egg. Timing depends on how cooked you want your egg. I usually will boil my water and then cover and remove from heat and allow them to sit for 10 minutes. Then add ice to the pot to stop cooking.
