Bacon and Egg Pasta Salad ~ What to do with leftover *Hard boiled Eggs* ? This Bacon & Egg Pasta Salad is perfect and makes a delicious lunch or light dinner - on the table in under 30 minutes !

If you have been cooking like me over the Easter weekend, you most probably sit with a bunch of hard boiled eggs and are not really in the mood for yet another, deviled egg.

I am usually also very lazy after a holiday, whether it is one day or a whole weekend, and this Bacon and Egg Pasta Salad is the answer to both.

You can use up the Eggs in this salad and the salad itself is quick to throw together, you can make it in advance, and you should have all the ingredients on hand.

If not, you can make so many changes, add Leeks or Asparagus instead of Celery. Plain white Onion can be used in place of the Red Onion, and you can use just about any Pasta imaginable.

This is also the perfect salad to take with on picnics or to any gathering. Keep it in a cooler box though as the Mayonnaise will go bad if left without chilling too long.

I am a leftover-brunch kind of person and will devour most leftovers during the following morning. But I have made the Bacon and Egg salad and had leftovers which kept well for two days after I made the salad. (Remember to keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.)

This is a large salad and as a side will serve 8, as a main meal 4 – 6 people, depending on ages. I always make a small appetizer when we only have the salad as a main meal (and of course a dessert! for afterwards)

Your basic egg salad, I put a little twist on it and used grilled chicken and minus the onion, simply because I did not have it and had a ton of boiled eggs from Easter! SUPER YUM! :D Thank you so much

I think this salad would be super great with grilled sandwiches this winter! Not only a summer dish! Clever idea of adding bacon!

I made today and using 1/2 cup of chopped red onion was over-powering. Next time I'll only use 1/8 cup or omit altogether.

This potato salad looks delicious and a great side for grilled dishes! I'm a fan of eggy pasta salads and potato salads.
