Everything is Better with Bacon. Deviled Eggs just got kicked up a notch. How to make them got easier too. It's almost Easter so many of us will be coloring eggs. I know my family loves to color the eggs but not so hot on eating hard boiled eggs for the next 10 days. They like deviled eggs and these little guys have bacon in them. I let the girls taste test one. They gave it a thumbs up. They probably would have told me how awesome they were but since they had food in their mouths a thumbs up worked well.
Bacon Deviled Eggs
- 6 eggs
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon mayonaise
- 1 Tablespoon mustard
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 3-4 slices of cooked bacon (about 1/4 cup chopped)
Hard boil the eggs, let them cool completely before peeling. Then cut them in half, scoop out the yolk. Add the yolks with the mayo, mustard, salt and pepper along with 1/8 teaspoon of paprika. Mix until the mixture is smooth. Then add in half of the bacon. Spoon this into each 1/2 egg white shell. Garnish with the remainder of the bacon and sprinkle with more paprika.
Two thumbs up.
That is not the end of the story. Dan from 6:15am, not to be confused with Danno from 6:15am. introduced me to an egg cooker. In fact he presented me with a gift of one last week. Dean already tried it out but I wanted to use it too. It is the fastest and easiest way to make hard boiled eggs. I know some love the traditional method. Others love the instant pot for hard boiled eggs. I haven't had much luck especially peeling them to look deviled egg quality. The Egg Cooker works! I don't get a kick back for saying I like this kitchen tool. I can't even tell you where to find it because mine was a gift. I can tell you it works. I'm going to try poached eggs in it next.
No matter how you get all those eggs hard boiled for Easter, this recipe will make quick use of the eggs after they've been colored.
Enjoy good food,
