Bacon and Deviled Eggs | Taste and Tell

It’s a holiday weekend.  It’s the end of spring break for many of you, and the beginning of spring break for others.  So I’m going to keep this short, because really – the last thing you want to do on a holiday weekend is to sit and read a lengthy blog post.

But I do want to tell you to make these.  Especially if you are a deviled egg fan.  And a bacon fan.

One of my favorite parts about Easter – food wise – are the deviled eggs.  And yet another reason that I love Rachael Ray so much is because of her love of deviled eggs.  Seriously – this lady knows her deviled eggs.  Last year, I made 3 of her versions, and this year I am adding another.  It’s hard to go wrong when adding bacon, so I knew these would be a winner.  And they were.  This is definitely a recipe I’ll be making again next week with our leftover boiled eggs!  Happy Easter!

Bacon and Deviled Eggs
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
What is better than a deviled egg? Bacon in a deviled egg!!
Serves: 12 eggs
  • 12 eggs
  • 6 pieces thick cut bacon
  • 3 tablespooons yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons paprika, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons relish
  • 3 tablespoons grated onion
  • a few dashes hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper
  1. Put the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Set the pan over high heat. When the water boils, remove the pan from the heat and cover. Let sit for 10 minutes, then drain and run cold water over the eggs until cold. When the eggs are completely cool, remove, crack the eggshells, and carefully peel off the eggshells.
  2. While the eggs are cooking, dice the bacon. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat then add the bacon and cook until crisp. Remove to a paper towel to cool.
  3. When the eggs have been peeled, cut a quarter of the fat, rounded end of the egg. The yolk should be exposed. Remove the yolk and place it in a bowl. Cut a small bit off of the pointed end so that the egg will stand up.
  4. Once all of the eggs have been cut and the yolks have been removed, break the yolks up with a fork. Add in the mustard, paprika, relish, onion, hot sauce, mayonnaise and bacon, reserving a few small pieces for garnish. Season with salt and pepper. Mix completely.
  5. Put the yolk mixture into a large ziptop bag. Cut off one corner, and using the bag like a pastry bag, fill each of the eggs with the mixture. Dust each of the eggs with paprika and garnish with the reserved bacon. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve.

  5. Joanne says:

    So…awkward. But I’ve never actually had deviled eggs. I KNOW.

    These sound fabulous though!

  6. Chels R. says:

    Okay, so I have yet to ever make deviled eggs, but, if I were to ever get around to making deviled eggs, I would make these deviled eggs, for the main reason being that there is bacon in them. Oh yes!!!

    I used to have a similar recipe, usig ground ham (also a favorite Easter leftover) that is very tasty when substituting some sour cream or crem cheese (can’t remember which or if both) for mayonnaise which I prefer since I am not fond of mayonnaise.

    LOVE these eggs!

    I should have just boiled the eggs the way I normally do bc when I followed these directions they were undercooked and the shell pulled off most of the white. I had to trash that dozen and boil a whole new dozen the way I normally do. Live and learn.
