Picnic season is in full swing so why not have fun with bacon deviled eggs? A very easy and simple starter that will please a crowd!
Get your whoa factor up the roof with a fancy piping job and a little garnish of bacon and fresh chives. Boom, a work of art – words from my daughter.
Bacon deviled eggs :
- 6 eggs
- 3 slices of bacon
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tsp mustard
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 minced garlic clove
- 1 tsp chives
- Salt and pepper
With a sewing needle, poke a hole in each egg. Go slow so it won’t burst open. It allows air bubbles to escape and you get eggs that peel right off.
If you have a steamer, steam the eggs inside for 13 minutes.
If you don’t : add a little bit of water in a pot and add a steaming basket inside. When the water starts to simmer, add your eggs to the basket and cook for 13 minutes.
Transfer to an ice bath for 3 minutes.
Peel the eggs and slice lengthwise.
Spoon out the yolks in a bowl and set the whites aside.
In the bowl, add the rest of the ingredients (but not the chives) and mix until smooth.
Stuff your eggs with a spoon or a piping bag for a fancy version.
Fry the bacon and break into small pieces.
Garnish the eggs with a few bits of bacon and chopped chives.
