Bacon & Jalapeno Deviled Eggs

This recipe has been modified from Real HouseMoms

Ingredients:

  • 12 large eggs, hard boiled and peeled
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • ¼ tsp vinegar
  • 1 ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ to 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
  • 4 pieces bacon, cooked, crisp, and crumbled
  • paprika (optional)

Directions:

  1. Slice the hard boiled eggs in half, lengthwise
  2. Remove the yolks and put them in a mixing bowl
  3. Mash the egg yolks with a fork
  4. Add the mayo, yellow mustard, vinegar, sugar, and dash of optional paprika to the mashed egg yolks and stir until well combined
  5. Mix in the jalapeno and bacon
  6. Fill each egg hole with the mixture
  7. Sprinkle with paprika
  8. Chill until ready to serve

Here’s my suggestion for the best egg tray both for travel and for serving. What’s great is you can put ice in the lid with the tray of eggs on top when serving, so they stay cold.

Tips for Boiling Farm Fresh Eggs:

  1. Start out by getting your water boiling first, then gently put eggs into boiling water using a ladle
  2. Boil for 12 minutes
  3. Turn off heat and drain out water
  4. Immediately put eggs into a bath of ice water
  5. Allow eggs to stay in ice water bath for 10 – 15 minutes before you begin peeling, and add more ice as needed

By starting with boiling water first, and finishing the cooking process with an ice water bath the fresh eggs will be easier to peel.
