How To Make Deviled Eggs With Bacon and Jalapeno
Deviled eggs date back hundred of years, with the British coining the term ‘deviled’ to describe making food spicy. They have since been renamed as stuffed eggs, dressed eggs and even mimosa eggs with all the usual brunch associations. There’s even a site DeviledEggs.com dedicated to all the possible variations!
The bacon and jalapeño give this deviled egg recipe a nice kick! You can increase or decrease the amount of jalapeño depending on how spicy you want it, and of course you can omit for a pure bacon and egg flavor sensation.
This is a great way to use up leftover hard boiled eggs, but here are a few hacks if you’re boiling them fresh. First cover them with a good inch of water in a large pot. When they’re done after about 8 minutes, place them in a bowl of ice water and they’ll not only cool faster but be easier to peel.

- Hard boil the eggs by placing in a large pot of water and bringing to a boil for 8 minutes. You can cook your bacon at this time too.

- Remove the yolks with a spoon and add to a medium bowl. Mash the egg yolks with a fork.
- Then add in the mayo, vinegar, mustard and sugar, mixing until combined. Mix in the minced jalapenos and bacon.
