Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs

by

I have to give our friend Lisa J. credit for this recipe.  She posted it on her Facebook page and I couldn’t wait to try it.  I made them last night and sent them to work with Mark so I could use his co-workers as guinea pigs.  Evidently they were a big hit.

So I want to give you a little history about my deviled eggs.  I make awesome deviled eggs.  Every holiday my family expects to see deviled eggs as part of the meal, and what my kids want they normally get.  Many, many times during the process there are many cuss words and some extreme anger.  And sometimes even a thowing of the eggs, and yes I do have an anger issue.  Every time I have a problem with the eggs not peeling right and they end up being mutilated. They look like Freddy Krueger just got a hold of them.  So after the last holiday I got to thinking, I just didn’t understand why they do that.  I have tried every trick on the internet and it didn’t help.  Every other time when I make a hard boiled egg, like for sandwiches, they turn out perfect.  So I got to experimenting and I have come to the conclusion that I am putting too many eggs in my pan.  I tried boiling them in smaller quantities in two different pans last night and they turned out perfect…..So, on with the recipe.  See notes below

Ingredients
  • 12 large eggs, hard boiled and peeled
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1½ tsp rice vinegar
  • ¾ tsp ground mustard
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
  • 6 pieces bacon, cooked, crisp, and crumbled
  • paprika
Instructions
  1. Slice the hard boiled eggs in half, lengthwise
  2. Remove the yolks and put them in a mixing bowl
  3. Mash the egg yolks with a fork
  4. Add the mayonnaise, rice vinegar, ground mustard, and sugar to the mashed egg yolks and stir until well combined
  5. Mix in the jalapenos and bacon
  6. Put the mixture in a ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the corner of the bag
  7. Fill each egg hole with the mixture
  8. Sprinkle with paprika
  9. Chill until ready to serve

Notes:

  • I did not use the vinegar or sugar.  Normally I make a recipe exactly by the recipe instructions the first time and then modify it later.  Besides that, rice vinegar isn’t something you normally have on hand in the kitchen.  I just couldn’t add these ingredients to my eggs.  So if anyone tries the rice vinegar and it turns out good, let me know and I will try it also.
  • I always use regular French’s mustard for my deviled eggs, not the ground.
  • Next time I will use more jalapeno, there just wasn’t enough heat for our taste.

    I made these last night. I used 3 parts apple cider vinegar and 1 part water as a substitute for the rice vinegar. I also used yellow prepared mustard. I also added some chopped purple onion. They were good last night, but incredible today!
