The bacon, blue cheese and avocado in this egg salad make it decadent. Serve it open-face on a piece of toasted whole-grain bread.

  • 3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 hard-boiled eggs (see Tip)
  • 1 ripe avocado, cubed
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic powder, pepper and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Halve eggs and discard 4 of the yolks (or save for another use). Add whites and the remaining 4 yolks to the bowl and mash to desired consistency. Gently stir in avocado, bacon and blue cheese.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
  • Tip: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

More bacon and blue cheese? Next time, I'd add more bacon and blue cheese... I couldn't really taste them in those small quantities. =( And for a low carb meal, I placed it on a mixed salad ;)

This was DELISH I made this with 2 avocados and included all the yolks in there, not just 4. I served this on toasted buns with a side of Onion Rings. Amazing! Delicious! Pros: Easy to make

If you make ahead and cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days doesn't the avocado turn and go bad?
