Egg Salad Burger

Egg Salad Burger

A heaping pile of egg salad on top of a burger with bacon, cheese, pickles, and potato chips! Is anyone obsessed with egg salad like I am right now? I can’t tell if it is having a moment or if it’s just me imagining it. It’s like eating deviled eggs with a spoon and I can’t get enough.

The inspiration for this recipe

Because of this egg salad obsession of mine, of course I started thinking, where can I put egg salad? Me being me, my first thought was on a burger! I didn’t want to do a smash burger for this one, I just made a typical medium sized patty and topped it with other things I like on burgers or with egg salad. Georgina and I made lettuce wraps with egg salad and potato chips recently, so I thought the chips would work on this burger too!

First make the egg salad

Chop up a bunch of hard boiled eggs. I boil my eggs for about 9 and a half minutes for a salad like this. There are many more eggs pictured than what you need for this recipe, I was making extra!

After all the eggs are in the bowl, add mayo, mustard, scallions, parsley, hot sauce, garlic, and lemon juice. Oh and of course, smoked paprika.

Build the egg salad burgers

I always put pickles on my burger but I don’t usually do bacon, it just made sense here to balance the egg. The brioche bun was toasted lightly and topped with a little mayo, but not much because there is so much mayo in the egg salad already! Munster is one of my favorite burger cheeses!

Serving the egg salad burger

Chips on top at the last minute so they stay crunchy! Then the top bun and serve. So good! Messy! You could put a little less egg salad on yours if you want it to be cleaner, but a burger should be messy.

All my egg salad dreams came true on this burger. So good!

Twists on this recipe

If you want the basics on making egg salad, this is an informative post and recipe. This was the post we saw about having chips on an egg salad lettuce wrap that helped inspire my burger today.

You could mix in anything to the egg salad. I almost did pickled jalapenos but decided to leave the pickles on the burger itself. I also almost put a leaf of lettuce on here to mimic the classic look of egg salad sandwiches, but I decided against it at the last moment.

egg salad

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 2 scallions minced
  • 1 clove garlic grated
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 pound ground beef 80% lean
  • 2 slices Munster cheese
  • 2 brioche buns
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 strips bacon cooked and cut in half
  • 6 pickle chips
  • 1/4 cup crushed potato chips


Egg salad

  • Bring water to a boil and add the eggs. Cook for 9 -10 minutes. While they are cooking prepare a bowl with ice and water. Transfer the eggs to the bowl with ice. I like to add them to the bowl aggressively so they slightly crack. This will make it easier to peel them later.
  • Peel the eggs and rinse off any excess shell. Chop the eggs and add them to a large bowl.
  • Add all the remaining egg salad ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine. Taste and adjust salt if needed.


  • split the grund beef in half and form two patties. Preheat a pan to high heat. Season the patties with salt and pepper and add to the pan.
  • Cook to brown on both sides and until medium in the center, about 3 – 4 minutes per side with a thin burger like this. When you flip the burger, add the cheese.
  • Broil or toast the buns for a few minutes until golden. Top with the mayo. It isnt much because there is plenty of mayo in the egg salad.
  • Add the burgers to the bottom buns, then the bacon, then the pickles, then the egg salad. Top with the chips and then the top buns and serve.
