Want to know the secret to making the world’s best deviled eggs? Don’t miss this super simple, easy-to-follow recipe for perfect deviled eggs with BACON. (Mmmmm…..bacon!)
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.
As a side note, the bacon is optional but highly recommended! If you are planning to add it, be sure to check out our instructions for quick & easy no-mess bacon!

Instant Pot recipe update: Place the steamer trivet into the pot, add 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pot, then place your eggs on the trivet. Use the egg button, or set for 5 minutes on high–make sure the vent valve is on the sealing position. Once time is up, wait 5 minutes then do a quick release, (cover the valve with a dish towel and be sure to move your hand). Remove eggs from instant pot and place them in an ice bath. When eggs are cool, peel.

I always put the cooked eggs in a bowl of ice water for a little while and the shells come right off.Thanks for delicious recipe. Yummy!
Novel and interesting twist on an ageless staple. Can’t wait to try it.
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)!
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.
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
