Egg Salad With Cheddar Cheese
There are so many different ways to make egg salad. I’ve seen recipes that use cream cheese, egg salad with cottage cheese – I’ve even seen egg salad without any mayo!
For me, I like to keep things simple and classic. I think that my combination of mayo, sour cream, and cheddar cheese, is just perfect. The sour cream gives it the perfect amount of tanginess so that it brings out the spicy from the jalapenos.
I also added some yellow mustard too! You have to try this egg salad – it is one of my favorite lunch recipes.
Egg Salad Lunch Ideas
Egg salad is an incredibly simple lunch idea that you can serve in a ton of different ways. If I’m really busy, I’ll just eat it with a fork as it is. I also like to add some of it to a large piece of lettuce and enjoy a crunchy lettuce wrap.
If I have a little extra time, I’ll make some ket0-friendly bread and have a low-carb sandwich.
There are also a lot of ways to make egg salad too. My Ceasar Egg Salad is my 2nd favorite version, after this one.
What To Make With Eggs on Keto
Eggs are one of the best types of food that you can eat on a low-carb diet. They are really high in protein and low in carbs. In fact, they are an excellent way to eat protein when you don’t want to eat meat.
Egg salad saves really well and there are a bunch of different ways you can make it. In addition to egg salad, you can also make bacon and egg casserole for breakfast or keto chicken egg foo young for dinner.
What To Do With Lots of Jalapenos
I love making things with jalapenos! If you have lots of jalapenos and need recipe ideas, you are on the perfect blog. I have a bunch of low-carb recipes that use them!
For a snack, make some jalapeno popper taquitos. They are crunchy and spicy. For something you can take with you out the door, make some cheddar jalapeno muffins. A recipe that I make for larger meals is my jalapeno popper green bean casserole. Everyone loves it!
And when I just want something salty and crunchy, I make some jalapeno chips. They are irresistible.
