How to Boil Eggs:
Like deviled eggs, everyone has their own way of boiling eggs. Feel free to prepare how you prefer. Boiled eggs can be prepared on the stove top with running water, instant pot and the oven. Allow them to dry on paper towels before storing.
We recommend preparing your eggs in the oven. We give you all the tips and tricks how to get the perfectly boiled eggs here.
When you are ready to make these deviled, prepare by removing the hard peels.
The Best Way to Peel Eggs:
Peeling eggs can get tricky and can cause your eggs to not look very pleasing. Here are some helpful tips to peel the eggs so your deviled eggs look appetizing.
- Older Eggs – I find that using older eggs make it easy to peel them when hard boiled.
- Chill Eggs – Everyone has their own method to boiling eggs. But I like to place them in a ice bath after baking. This usually causes the shell to peel right off.
- Roll the Egg – After you egg has cooled, gently roll the egg on the counter. This helps to crack the shell making it easy to peel.
- Peel at the Bottom – On the bottom of the egg there is a air pocket. I simply hit the bottom of the egg on the counter which makes it crack. Then start peeling from that air pocket. The shell will come right off.
What are Deviled Eggs?
Deviled eggs are usually made with all of our holiday dinners. Hard boiled eggs are sliced and the egg yolks are mashed and seasoned.
Then the egg yolk filling is then added back to the egg white for the ultimate appetizer. These are the perfect deviled eggs as the recipe is written, but can always be changed.
- Hard Boiled Eggs (cooled and peeled)
- Real Mayonnaise
- Dijon Mustard
- Pickle Relish
- Salt and Pepper (to taste)

- Chives (finely chopped)
How to Make Bacon Deviled Eggs:
- Step 1 – Slice Boiled Eggs – Slice the cooled hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks from the eggs and place them in a mixing bowl.
- Step 2 – Mash and Combine Ingredients – Gently mash the yolks with a fork. Then stir in the mayonnaise, dijon mustard, pickle relish, salt and pepper until it’s well combined.
- Step 3 – Add Filling into Eggs – Carefully spoon or pipe the mixture into the center of each egg half. Garnish with the paprika, chopped bacon and chives.
Can you Make Deviled Eggs with Bacon in Advance?
Yes, these deviled eggs with bacon can be prepared in advance. I like to prepare the hard boiled eggs up to a week in advance. Then place in the fridge.
Then about a day in advance when I am serving, I prepare the eggs. Remove the eggs from the refrigerator and peel, slice and remove the yolk. Combine the yolk with the seasoning, mayonnaise and mustard.
Then add the filling to the halved eggs and place on a serving platter. Cover the stuffed eggs with a plastic wrap and store in the fridge.
This is the perfect appetizer to have already done for your holiday dinner.
Deviled Egg Recipe with Bacon Recipe Tips:
- Prepare Eggs – Prepare the hard boiled eggs in advance. Make sure they are cooked with a soft center. Peel the eggs and store in the fridge until ready to make deviled eggs.
- Chilled Eggs – We think this recipe works best when starting with chilled eggs.
- Sharp Knife – Slice the eggs with a sharp knife so that you have a clean cut. It also prevents the egg from breaking or tearing.
- Divide Yolk Filling – You want to make sure that you are evenly adding the mixture to the egg whites.
- Combining the Filling Ingredients – This recipe has been tested and approved with the way it is written. If you are adding seasoning, you may want to taste it to make sure additional ingredients need to be added.
- Topping Eggs – We love the chopped bacon that is added. But garnishing with regular paprika always looks eye pleasing.
- Cook the Bacon – I like to prepare the bacon in advance or use leftover bacon. You can always use store bought bacon such as bacon bits to top the eggs.
- Change the Flavoring – Everyone has their own way of making deviled eggs. So feel free to tweak this recipe as you prefer. You can always substitute the pickle relish for apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
- Seasoning – We use simple seasoning to make this recipe. But you if you prefer you can add use smoked paprika, add in onion powder and more.
- Cheese – For a delicious twist add in cheddar cheese to the yolk mixture.
- Topping – When serving, you drizzle the top of the eggs with hot sauce or fresh parsley.
How to Store Leftovers:
Refrigerate the leftovers, covered, for up to 2 days.
