Have you tried topping your Deviled Eggs with Bacon?  It is a perfect combination.  You have to make these delicious deviled eggs.  This post also includes hard-boiled egg tips for both the stove and an Instant Pot.  


Add the bacon just before serving these eggs.

“Bacon and Eggs”

I usually make devil eggs for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holidays.  If I have any leftovers, they get eaten for breakfast the next morning.  That is how much my family loves deviled eggs.

Top Your Deviled Eggs With Bacon

This time, I decided to fry some crispy bacon and top the deviled eggs with the bacon.  They were truly the best eggs I have ever eaten.  The salty, crunchy bacon with the eggs was a perfect combination.  I guess that is why a lot of people eat Bacon and Eggs for Breakfast.  When cooking for a holiday meal, my children also help.  Carly always prepares the devil eggs.  Typically, she uses a swirl tip to pipe the filling into the center of the eggs perfectly.  That is my extremely organized perfectionist!  At first, she complained about the bacon covering up her pretty eggs but quickly stopped complaining after tasting these eggs.

Boiling Hard-Boiled Eggs

  1. Place your eggs at the bottom of a large pot in a single layer.  
  2. Add enough water to cover the eggs by 1-inch. 
  3. Bring the water to a rapid boil on the stove.  
  4. Next, immediately remove the eggs from the heat.  Cooking the eggs too long will create a gray ring around the yolk.  
  5. Cover the pot and set a timer for 15 minutes.

Ice Bath For Your Eggs

  1. After 15 minutes, place the eggs in an ice bath. 
  2. Let them sit in the ice bath for five minutes. 
  3. Remove the eggs from the ice water and tap the eggs on the counter.  
  4. Give the egg a roll on the counter between the palm of your hand and the counter.  
  5. Peel your eggs and enjoy!

Instant Pot Hard-Boiled Eggs

The Instant Pot is the best way to prepare hard-cooked eggs.  Use the 5, 5, 5, rule when cooking eggs in your Instant-Pot. 

  1. Cook your eggs in the Instant Pot for five minutes on high pressure.
  2. Naturally, release the pressure in the Instant Pot for five minutes.
  3. Next, place your eggs in an ice bath for five minutes. 

Bacon and Basil Deviled Eggs

Add Chiffonade basil with the bacon to top off your eggs. 

  • Wash the basil, then stack the individual leaves on top of each other.
  • Then roll the stack into a cylinder.
  • Slice in thin strips.

Smoked Salmon Eggs

This is my husband’s favorite way to eat deviled eggs. 

Top your deviled eggs with strips of lox-style smoked salmon and chopped chives. 

For Day-Old Hard-Boiled Eggs

After the eggs sit in a cold refrigerator for a day, they can be difficult to peel.  Try this to help peel your day old eggs.

  1. Submerge the hard-cooked eggs in hot water for one minute. 
  2. Next, place the eggs in ice water for one minute.
