Bacon Balsamic Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs have always been a favorite appetizer of mine. My mom made them with just mayonnaise and a little celery salt and always sprinkled them with paprika. As simple as they were, they disappeared from her serving platters with ease. I still make Mom’s simple recipe once in a while. Kids seem to like them without added crunch, etc. But for cocktail parties and other special celebrations, I whip up this Bacon Balsamic Deviled Eggs gourmet version of the classic recipe.

How to make perfect hard-boiled eggs:

I have a very easy method for making hard-boiled eggs that I learned from watching Martha Stewart a long time ago.  Place your eggs in a single layer in a large pot.  Cover the eggs with water and bring to a boil.  Cover, and then turn off the heat.  Let the eggs sit for 15 minutes.  Then rinse with cold water, and peel the eggs.

Also, now that I have an Instant Pot, I use that quite often for making deviled eggs.  It’s super easy to make them in the Instant Pot, and the shells slip off incredibly easy using this method too.  My friend Gina from SkinnyTaste.com has a good tutorial (with a video) that shows you how to make hard-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot.

What kind of eggs are best for making deviled eggs?

If you know you’re going to be making hard-boiled eggs, it’s good to note that older eggs will be easier to peel than fresh eggs when hard-boiled.  So buy your eggs a week ahead of hard-boiling them. You’ll be much less frustrated when it comes time to slipping off the peels!

How to make deviled eggs:

Make your hard-boiled eggs first.  I always make a few extra since there always seems to be a few that are hard to peel.  Those tough-to-peel rascals end up looking like rejects for using in this recipe, so I set those aside to make egg salad for egg salad sandwiches instead.  If you make a few extra, you should be good to go with 12 eggs that look nice when you peel them.

Use a sharp knife to slice the hard-boiled eggs in half. Dump the cooked yolks in a bowl and place the white halves on a platter.  While your eggs are cooking, cook four slices of bacon in a skillet until crisp.

In a medium bowl, mash the egg yolks and mix with mayo, chopped bacon, celery salt, onion, pepper, balsamic vinegar and a little sugar. Spoon the mixture into the egg halves or use a piping bag if you want it to look a little more fancy (or neat).

Take a look at my photos. Mine look pretty fancy the way the mixture is piped on. For these Bacon Balsamic Deviled Eggs, I used a piping bag with a too-small tip and it was a pain. The bacon kept getting stuck in the tip and caused quite the headache. If you wish to use a piping bag/tip, be sure to mince the bacon finely and use a tip that is large enough to push the chunks through.  When you watch the video, you’ll see that a bag without a tip is used for transferring the filling to the egg, and that method is so much easier.

I have a couple more deviled egg recipes you might like to try.  My Deviled Eggs Deluxe recipe is a bit more of a classic variety.  It has a little bit of crunch in it from added celery. And my Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs are a favorite for serving at brunch.

    Wow, I never would have thought of adding bacon to deviled eggs. I bet these would go fast at my table.

    These are beautiful deviled eggs. I’ve used prosciutto in my deviled eggs before but I never thought to use bacon. It makes perfect sense, though; bacon and eggs just go together!

    I’m sure I’ll be making these with some leftover colored eggs after Easter!
