Bacon Deviled Eggs

18 May

Very few things please me as much as the egg.

Well, my dogs. My dogs make me happy. Then there’s John of course but whatever, easy answer. BACON makes me endlessly happy, as we all know. Though I am not loving the BACON EVERYTHING hipster train. EXCUSE ME THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT LOVED BACON BEFORE IT WAS COOL. Ew actually that is something a hipster would say isn’t it. Okay I am the hipster and I do not appreciate people loving bacon because loving bacon is “cool”. Loving bacon is a serious thing!! You feel it in your soul. And later, your heart, when it inevitably explodes and shit.

Anyhow, since it’s not socially acceptable to make your dogs into deviled eggs (oh you’re soooo proper, america) I guess bacon deviled eggs are the next best thing.

And I’m not kidding about the “best thing” part. THESE ARE LITTLE EGGY BITES OF SAVORY DELICIOUSNESS. So easy, so quick. Soooo pleasing. Unless you have those TERRIBLE friends that are always like, “ewww I just can doooo mayonnaise it’s sooo bad for you wahhhh it’s sooo gross the texture freaks me outttttt wahhhhh wahhhh klhsdglkhsdlgkdshglkdshglsdkhgsdlkghsdlgkhsdg”. Like get over it. Or not. More for me and you.

Whoa egg pictures are pretty boring.

Random dog photo? That’s better.

Bacon Deviled Eggs 

(From June/July Issue of Fine Cooking)

  • 4 peeled hard-cooked large eggs
  • 3 Tbs. mayo
  • 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • Paprika for garnish

Slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks, transfer them to a small bowl, and mash them with the back of a spoon. Add the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard,  the parsley and hot sauce. Mash until smooth. Stir in the chopped/cooked bacon and season to taste with salt and pepper. Fill the egg whites (I use a pastry bag because I am so fucking fancy like that). Sprinkle with little pinches of paprika — smoked paprika if you can find it!

Double the recipe and pop the leftovers into your mouth for breakfast all week. Not that I did that. That’s gross.

    Love the bacon deviled eggs blog! Great observations of us bacon lovers!
    I am picking up my pork belly today and making my own Cherrywood smoked bacon. Going to take a week to make. I can’t wait! It tastes better by far and I can cut that shit as thick as I want 😉

    Have a great weekend!

    Chrissy these look awesome. Next time try curry instead of the mustard, I bet it’s ten times better. That’s what I use for my deviled eggs and it’s a hit everytime. Now can we have your potato salad recipe!?! 🙂

  6. Lauren May 18, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

    You are hysterical! Love the pups!

  7. Alexis May 18, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    THANK YOUUU. I’m so sick of the mayo haters! Get over it!! Cannot wait to make these! You’re my hero.

    DAMN, girl! My question is 100% serious – no snark behind it – but did you hardboil the eggs yourself?! Mine are never that perfect!! The yolk hole is all off center and they don’t fill up so pretty. I’ve followed all sorts of tips on-line, but they never looks this good. Share your secrets, please!!!!

    CHRISSY!! I have been making these bacon devils for years =) I never put the dijon in tho, I always used a dash of tarragon vinegar so I’m totally making this, this weekend for me and the fam with the mustard. awesome. thanks.

    Mmmm…I love me some deviled eggs! Serious question: what’s the difference between kosher salt and sea salt. I really don’t know and want to.


    • Sarah May 18, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

      kosher salt is sea salt blessed by a rabbi 😉

    Gorgeous photos! I’ve convinced my mom to prepare deviled eggs in celebration of all holidays, even those we do not necessarily “celebrate”

  13. Jessica May 18, 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    Next time add a little of the bacon grease into the filling too, it gives it an amazingly rich creamy texture. So incredible!

    I went to a Bacon Festival here in Atlanta last month and my best friend and I spent the entire time pointing out the people that were full of shit and bandwagon hoppers! Bastards. And I make/eat deviled eggs all the time. Why didn’t I think to add bacon? I’m slipping.

    My Mom makes a big plate of deviled eggs for Christmas and other such gatherings, and I eat all of them. Meanwhile, the rest of my family looks at them like they’re aliens.

  16. Lauren May 18, 2012 at 9:07 pm #

    God I HATE people that refuse to accept mayo. It’s delish, it’s creamy, it’s fatty and WHO CARES?! Love it! just glad you mentioned how annoying those people are and the eggs look amazing

    I am so with you on deviled eggs and potato salad! 2 of my favorite comfort foods when done right (usually by my Mom). But these recipes look to die for. Going to give them a try. Thanks for sharing!

    That random dog photo should be submitted to the Greatest Animal Photobombers of All Time:

    Also, I’m totally going to make these with veggie bacon.

    I have never heard of bacon deviled eggs, but this sounds yum!! I usually put dill relish in my deviled eggs. I think I am going to make these eggs this morning. Thanks!

  22. Josh Rutherford May 25, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

    Try a light dusting of chipotle powder instead of paprika for a little extra smokiness and heat. Delushious!

  23. Pattee May 30, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    Can’t wait to make!! And that picture of your pups…….ADORABLE!!!

  24. Moi Contre Le Vie June 8, 2012 at 2:05 pm #
