Who doesn't love deviled eggs?? Anytime we have them at a family gathering, they are the first thing to be gone! For Christmas at my Mom's house yesterday, I decided to try this variation for something new and they turned out to be pretty good!!
What you need:
5 strips cooked bacon
1/3 c. mayo
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
paprika for garnish
4 green onions, chopped for garnish
Place eggs into a saucepan in a single layer. Cover the eggs with hot water. Cook on high heat and once the eggs start to boil, continue boiling for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool the eggs down by rinsing a few times with cold water until eggs are completely cooled. Peel or store in fridge if using eggs at a later time.
Halve the eggs lengthwise and scoop egg yolks into a bowl. Mash yolks with a fork. Stir in bacon, mayo, garlic powder, basil, cayenne pepper and black pepper. Mix until combined. Scoop egg yolk mixture into a ziploc bag, snip off the corner. Pipe egg mixture into the egg whites. Garnish with paprika and green onions!!
