BACON DEVILED EGGS — Crispy bacon, green onion and a hint of cayenne pepper are added to traditional deviled eggs in this kicked up version of the classic stuffed egg appetizer.
I love deviled eggs. Love! And the crispy bacon in these Bacon Deviled Eggs only makes them better. Because, as we all know, bacon makes everything better.
These eggs are a perfect addition to a brunch buffet. They also make great appetizers, and are fantastic protein packed snacks.
Of course, I usually eat a few too many to call it a snack…..so I’m going to say they’re also great as a light lunch! Really, I can’t eat just one or two of these delicious stuffed eggs.
Maybe that’s why they’re called deviled eggs…..because they’re so tempting!
A little secret for getting your deviled eggs to sit flat on a plate or platter. Remove a tiny slice from the underside of the egg. This will create a flat bottom for the egg to rest on. No more deviled eggs tipping and sliding around your serving tray!
If you love deviled eggs as much as I do, then this bacon version is a must try. I hope you like them as much as I do. Try not to eat too many!
