Classic Deviled Eggs are taken to a whole new level with the addition of bacon! They’re creamy, decedent and totally irresistible. These perfect little bites are great for brunch, Easter, baby and wedding showers or anytime you’re throwing a party!
Bacon Deviled Eggs might just be the all time favorite party food in my house. It’s no secret how much I love to entertain and deviled eggs have become a tradition when it’s time to serve up a few appetizers. They are easy to make and can be served at any event. Whether you’re throwing someone a party, entertaining friends, hosting a baby shower or celebrating a bride to be, these eggs are the ideal finger food to serve.
Even though these Bacon Deviled Eggs are considered “party food,” they tend to show up at other times, too. I love making these eggs topped with bacon on weekends when we’re taking things slow and easy. There’s nothing quite like having a lazy Saturday afternoon, enjoying a few snacks then grilling out. Let’s not forget though, deviled eggs are a MUST on any holiday table and I’ll be making a double batch for Easter and Thanksgiving and Christmas!
How To Make Bacon Deviled Eggs
I use my Instant Pot to cook the eggs and have found that they turn out perfectly every single time. They are also incredibly easy to peel, since they’re steamed. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, no worries, just cover your eggs with cold water, bring them up to a boil, cover with a lid and turn off the heat. Set your timer for 13 minutes, then drain and cover eggs with cold water. Once they’re cooled, peel and cut in half. Take out the yolks of each egg half and place in a small bowl. Add in mayonnaise, horseradish, chives, salt and pepper and blend until smooth. Now, to build the deviled eggs, I keep things simple and straightforward. I fill a Ziplock bag with the creamy yolk mixture, snip off the corner and gently squeeze it into each little while egg boat. After all the eggs are filled, I sprinkle on cooked, chopped bacon, a few extra chives and that’s it. It’s time to party!
