6 egg sandwiches


  • 6 large eggs

  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and cut into thirds

  • 1 cup loosely packed baby spinach

  • 2 small tomatoes, thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup mashed avocado

  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper, plus more for garnish


  1. Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Drain and cover with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Carefully peel the eggs; cut each in half crosswise.

  2. Place 6 of the egg halves on a serving plate. Top each with 2 bacon pieces. Arrange spinach and tomato slices on top of the bacon.

  3. Combine avocado, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Spread 1 tablespoon of the avocado mayonnaise on the cut side of each of the remaining egg halves. Sandwich the eggs together; skewer each with a wooden pick to hold the fillings in place. Garnish with ground pepper.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
