Best Cobb Salad ever! I use a homemade roast chicken, thick cut bacon, jammy eggs, tomatoes, blue cheese, romaine lettuce and more! So good!
If there was ever a salad that satisfied everyone in my family, it’s the Cobb Salad. I mean, it has a little bit of everything in it . . roast chicken, thick cut bacon, pecans, avocado (my Phoebe’s favorite), jammy eggs (my favorite), tomatoes, blue cheese, romaine lettuce and more!!
And the dressing comes together in a flash .. it’s pretty much what I make all the time: olive oil, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar and salt and pepper.
Here’s my roast chicken recipe! I highly suggest making your own! It’s so easy!! But if you don’t have time, simply buy a rotisserie chicken from the store!
For the eggs:
I love jammy eggs, click here to see how I make them. General timing for eggs: hard boiled: 8 to 9 minutes, jammy eggs: 7 minutes, soft boiled eggs: 6 minutes.
For the Bacon:
I like to bake my bacon. Arrange long pieces of foil over a baking sheet. I like to overlap two long pieces so there’s less mess. Arrange the bacon strips on top in one even layer, do not overlap. Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 to 20 minutes (18 to 20 minutes for crispy bacon).
I hope you enjoy!
