BEST DEVILED EGGS – “Bacon and Eggs”

Have you tried topping your Deviled Eggs with Bacon?  It is a perfect combination.  You have to make these delicious deviled eggs.


Add the bacon just before serving these 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.

Tips For Making Hard Boiled Eggs

When making hard-boiled eggs, put all the eggs in already-boiling water, then turn the heat down to a simmer and leave them for 10 minutes.   In the pot, they boiled in, rinse the boiled eggs in cold water to cool them quickly which makes them easier to peel.  Gently shake the eggs back and forth in the pot.  The peelings will crack and start to fall off.  Peel the eggs.

Do you have an Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker? Use It for Hard Boiled Eggs

An Instant Pot makes perfect hard-boiled eggs every time using the 5, 5, 5, rule

To make 18 large eggs:

  1. Insert a steam rack in Instant Pot
  2. Place one cup water in the bottom of the Instant Pot
  3. Secure the lid
  4. Set Instant Pot to pressure cook on high 5 minutes
  5. Let the pressure cooker NATURAL RELEASE 5 minutes and then quick release any remaining pressure. 
  6. Using tongs, transfer the cooked eggs to a large bowl of ice water.
  7. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  8. Peel and serve.

Tips: Hard Boiled Eggs

  • Eggs that are closer to their expiration date will peel easier than fresher eggs.
  • Organic, brown, or farm-fresh eggs are harder to peel.

Deviled Egg Recipe – I have never used a recipe when fixing deviled eggs.  This time, I wrote down the ingredients as my daughter Carly made these deviled eggs.

    • Crystelle,

      If you add the bacon, make sure it is cooked really hard. I learned this the hard way. The bacon on the deviled eggs is Outstanding!
      Thanks for stopping by.
      Blessings and have a Great Easter too!!
