Ingredients
  

  • 6 eggs
  • 4 pieces of cooked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons chives
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 6 croissants

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, mash together cream cheese, mayo, chives, salt and pepper.
  • In a large bowl, use a pastry cutter to mash up eggs. Finely chop the bacon and add to eggs.
  • Add shredded cheddar and cream cheese mixture to eggs and bacon. Mix together until everything is mixed really well and eggs are covered in cream cheese.
  • Serve on bread with spinach.

Notes

TIP: For a different flavor experience, try adding avocado or relish to your egg salad. 
TIP: Hard-boiled eggs in their shell will last in the fridge for about a week. Peeled eggs will last about 2 days so if you are making this recipe to eat right away, you can make your eggs ahead of time to save a bit of prep time once you are ready to make your egg salad.
TIP: A potato masher works well if you don't have a pastry cutter to mash up your eggs.
TIP: For an extra yummy option, toast your bread before adding the egg mixture.
