Fakin’ Bacon and Egg Spread

This recipe is one that I learned from Anelle years ago when we were living in Leicester. It makes a great spring time picnic sandwich spread, and I love it on crackers even more. Her recipe is vegetarian, and that’s usually how I do it. But this time I used real bacon bits. It’s better with fake bacon, really.

Fakin’ Bacon and Egg Spread

Eggs, hard boiled
Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
Fake bacon, such as Morning Star Farms. Or real bacon, cooked.
Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke, if you’re using real bacon.

Smash the eggs up as if you were making egg salad. I like to use my pastry blender for this. Crumble the bacon. Add mayo until you get almost the consistancy you want. You want to stop before you actually get to your preferred consistancy. Then you want to add the worcestershire sauce until you get the taste and consistancy you want. If you’re using real bacon, add the liquid smoke (oddly, real bacon isn’t as flavorful as fake bacon!) Chill in fridge. Spread on bread for a yummy sandwich or spread on crackers for a non-sandwich.

Note: I usually use aproximately five eggs and three strips of fake bacon.
