Keto Bacon Egg Salad Rolls are paleo, low carb, and make for a very satisfying and tasty appetizer, snack, or grab and go breakfast or lunch.
Made in the Instant Pot or on the stovetop, these snacks have creamy egg salad with chopped bacon rolled up in a ham or turkey deli slice.
I like to make these keto bacon egg salad rolls in advance and store in the fridge to have easily available for a quick snack, or a grab & go breakfast or packable lunch.
These also make a wonderful, no-fuss appetizer for guests or parties.
I made these for my son's drama theater group and they were such a hit & the whole tray was devoured in minutes.
Also, for those of you who don't enjoy ham, you can also use turkey deli slices instead. You can also omit the bacon if you must.
This recipe has two options for cooking the eggs; Instant Pot directions & stovetop directions, depending on which method you prefer.
The Instant Pot method is a little faster but the boiling on the stovetop method does not take that much more time or effort.
I used an ice bath to cool down the eggs faster and make them easier to peel the shells off. But you can also just let them cool on the counter to room temperature if you're out of ice cubes.
