This is a classic Egg Salad recipe with a twist that will take you from “Yum” to “I need another sandwich ASAP!” It is an easy, simple dish to make and perfect for taking to all your barbecues and picnics! If you haven’t had egg salad with cream cheese. Prepare yourself. It’s incredible.
Cream cheese is what makes this the best egg salad recipe in the world. Even my picky kids would agree. This is amazing. I love that easy egg salad is a cinch to make. The only cooking part is the eggs. Other than that, just mix and go.
I’ve put this egg salad on regular bread I’ve got lying around the house and on buttery croissants. It goes great with everything. And it’s very customizable. Like paprika? Don’t like relish? How about bacon? You get to pick what goes into your recipe!
