It’s not the weekend if I’m not posting something with smoked salmon 👌🏼👌🏼 definitely been on a real kick recently! This is a twist on a typical egg salad and is mayo-free. To make this egg salad you’ll start by boiling your eggs. Make sure they’re more on the cooked side so they’re firm for when you grate them. I usually cook them for about 8 minutes. Once cooked you’ll make your egg salad! Instead of mayo, I used creme fraiche! You can also use Greek yogurt as an alternative. Add lots of capers, fresh dill, olive oil and lemon! You’ll grate the hard boiled egg into the mixture and combine. Once your egg salad is all set, you’ll scoop it onto a bagel with some avocado and smoked salmon. Top with everything but the bagel seasoning and enjoy. I like Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, but if you don’t have a TJ’s near you, this one from Thrive is great! I love making brunch with smoked salmon and if you’re a fan, too definitely check out my other recipes here! Full recipe below and happy Saturday!!
