Ingredient notes

  • Hard boiled eggs. Check out my post on hard boiled eggs for all of my tips to make them perfect. While homemade is always best in my opinion, store bought hard boiled eggs are a great time saver.
  • Mayonnaise. You can use any kind of mayo you’d like (vegan, reduced fat, etc.). Greek yogurt is a great substitute if you’re not a fan of mayo.
  • Dijon mustard. This ingredient adds savory, tangy flavor. It may be substituted with yellow mustard if you don’t have any on had.
  • Bacon. I love preparing my air fryer bacon for this recipe, but it may be cooked using your favorite method.
