bacon cheddar deviled eggs

this is a fun twist on traditional deviled eggs.  they'd be a great super bowl snack

start by hard boiling 6 eggs.  slice them in half lengthwise and remove the yolks to a bowl

mash the yolks with a masher or a fork.
this is my egg masher by the way.
his name is mashy and he'll be assisting me.

now add 1/4 cup mayo, 1tsp mustard, 1tsp vinegar, and a sprinkling of salt

combine with a whisk.  some of it may get caught in the center of the whisk, 
but you can just tap it off every so often.

now fry up 3 slices of bacon to crispiness level 8 or above. drain well on paper towels.
(i cut mine in half so it cooks faster)

now add it to a mini food processor

pulse several times

now you have bacon bits!

add them to the bowl with the yolk.  don't worry if it's clumped together.  
the bacon fat is responsible for that.  it'll work itself out later.

now add 1/4 to 1/3 cup shredded cheddar to the chopper

and pulse.

it should look something like this

add the cheese to the bowl with the yolk mixture and bacon

now fold it all together with a rubber spatula.
it's like egg yolk funfetti!

now place a lunch baggie in a glass and fold the top over.
use the spatula to spoon the mixture into the baggie.

lift the bag out and squish all the mixture towards one corner

cut a decent size hole in the corner.  remember you need enough space for the bacon and cheese bits to pass through.

now pipe it into your egg whites.

and there you have it.

this is basically the exact same as my regular deviled egg recipe, with the addition of pulverized bacon and cheese.

give it a try and see how you like it!

  1. Mashy was a great addition to this post. Also: I think I love you.

  2. I smiled and laughed all the way through this! Was wondering why Mashy was on the counter top. Great photos with Mashy. You should be a comedian. :-)
