Deviled Eggs with Bacon

Deviled Eggs with Bacon | The Best Deviled Egg Recipe | Easy Deviled Eggs | Deviled Eggs Party Food

My husband is not really a recipe guy, but there are a few things that he makes better than anyone else on the planet.  The first is omelets.  The second is grilled cheese sandwiches.  And the third is deviled eggs.

He says the secret is in their simplicity–less is more (especially when it comes to mustard!) In any case, they are absolutely delicious.  And I figured, since most of us will have a sudden influx of hard-boiled eggs to contend with this weekend, this would be the perfect time to share his top secret recipe.

    This looks delicious! I would have never thought to add bacon but I bet this is all kinds of amazing.

  2. You cannot go wrong with adding bacon. I will have to try it this Easter Sunday for the family. I hope it comes out looking as good as yours. Any advice on peeling the egg shells, I always have a hard time peeling it while keeping the egg intact and looking good.

      The running water helps a lot, as does shaking the pan vigorously until the shells are all really cracked–then they just slide right off! 🙂

        Also adding some baking soda to the water helps tremendously.. (I don’t measure how much, just put eggs in pan fill with water sprinkle I’d say maybe tablespoon in and let boil)

    Adding the bacon makes this a really special and appetizing dish! We’ve been looking for breakfast ideas for Easter Sunday and I think I’ve just found the perfect one! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe 🙂

    I just went to a restaurant that a similar recipe. They were awesome! The bacon was candied burbon bacon and they had hot sauce on them. The sweet and hot combo was amazing. These look great!

  5. This looks really good! And in fact, looks like he made pretty much one of Estonian traditional Easter meals 🙂 Well done!

    Love the bacon garnish. Have you ever coddled eggs? Fill the pot with enough water to cover eggs by one inch. Bring to boil. Cover pot, turn off heat, and let sit 20 minutes. The whites will be tender, not rubbery. Thanks for all your efforts to share your good ideas. They brighten my day! Cwoosley12@yahoo.com

    What a wonderful idea! I’ve put bacon on egg salad sandwiches before (oh so good), but I’ve never thought to add it to deviled eggs. Brilliant! I’ve pinned this and will be referring to the recipe quite soon.

    Looks just like my deviled eggs recipe except I add horseradish instead of cayenne. My mr. prefers the short intensity of the horseradish over the long lasting spiciness of cayenne (but he’s a baby about spicy stuff)!

    Novel and interesting twist on an ageless staple. Can’t wait to try it.
