How Do You Make Bacon Deviled Eggs?

The first step to this bacon deviled eggs recipe is to boil eggs in a large pot. Next, peel the boiled eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Separate the whites and yolks. Place the yolks in a food processor and add mayo, cream, mustard, salt and pepper. Process the yolks until smooth. Scoop the egg yolk filling into a piping bag and pipe the mixture into each egg white. Sprinkle smoked paprika over the eggs. Top the eggs with crumbles of bacon and sliced fresh chives. Serve and enjoy!

Tips For The Perfect Eggs

  • I cook a few more eggs than necessary so if I have any issues with peeling, I’ve got some backups for my bacon deviled eggs.
  • The easiest way to fill a deviled egg is with a pastry bag. Don’t just spoon in the yolk mash, use a disposable pastry bag with a large star tip for perfect looking egg filling.
  • If you don’t have a pastry bag, simply use a gallon sized plastic bag with one corner snipped off as a makeshift pastry bag.
  • For the best deviled egg filling, use a food processor to puree everything to a silky smooth consistency.
  • I like to use a submerged, color changing egg timer that shows when the eggs are boiled.
  • For the holidays serve these eggs at parties with some of my favorite drink recipes like a pomegranate margarita, Christmas sangria, a poinsettia cocktail or a cranberry Moscow mule.

Quick Tip

Keep your bacon crumbles small so that they’ll stick to the filling better.
