Egg salad sandwiches will always be a part of me. I loved it when I was a kid, and I enjoy it even now. My mom used to make it for me when I was younger. I grew up to the classic egg salad sandwich. But today, I want an upgrade! And this deluxe egg salad recipe with boiled eggs, cream cheese, celery, and croissants is the way to go! Incredibly easy to throw together using only a few ingredients and crazy delicious, this is by far the best and my new favourite version of the classic egg salad.
I have the pickiest eaters, and they hate mashed eggs! For them, a mashed hard-boiled egg is gross. So, I never expected them to enjoy this egg salad sandwich. They never like the traditional egg salad sandwich. When I first made this, they were super hesitant to try it. But after that first bite, they never stopped! I suggest not skipping the bacon because it makes this already incredible sandwich a star!
