Lots of eggs?! Try an Egg 'n BACON Smash + Mayonnaise Recipe

Egg 'n Bacon Smash
If you find yourself with an over abundance of eggs, what do you do?  I'll tell you what we do...

When we find ourselves in that situation we always get creative.  Egg this, egg that... this time we decided to try an Egg 'N Bacon Smash.  Actually, just a fancy name for an egg salad BLT!

Here's how:

Make your favorite egg salad.  Ours is homemade mayo (*see recipe below) mixed with hard boiled eggs, sea salt, white pepper, and a few healthy squirts of yellow mustard.  

Once you have your egg salad ready, toast some sprouted grain bread, use your egg salad as your 'mayonnaise' and 'lather up' both sides of toast, add bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes.

That's it!  These were so good, the kids went through a loaf and a half of bread making them in one meal!

We cooked up several packages of bacon for these in the oven on a shallow pan.  Extra cooked bacon can be stored in the fridge or freezer for more of these yummy sandwiches!  

Plus, if you are using a good quality nitrate-free bacon (traditionally cured), (preferably pastured), SAVE your grease.  Store this in a glass jar in the fridge and you will have some tasty, and healthy fat to add to that next dish.  (Excellent in homemade tomato sauces or soups...heck, it's bacon grease, it's good in about anything!)

*Homemade Mayo*

You will need a quart wide mouth canning jar and an immersion blender for this recipe, but it is EASY and worth it to your heart health!

Oilve oil mayonnaise, homeade in quart canning jar
 In a quart wide mouth canning jar add (in this order):

  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1.5 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon of dry mustard powder
  • fill the jar to just a little below the 2.5 cup mark with olive oil (use a GOOD quality olive oil here or you may find it too strong)  brands I like are Zoe and Toscani, extra virgin olive oils
Now, insert your immersion blender to the bottom of jar.  Turn on and hold steady in place, do not move around just yet.  You will quickly start to see white at the bottom of your jar and the mayonnaise beginning to form, when you see this in the lower portion of jar, begin to move blender from side to side then up and down.  Voila!  You will now have yummy, fluffy, heart-healthy mayonnaise!
