Very best Deviled Eggs

Dish: Picnic
Dish Type: Eggs
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Prep Time:
Cook Time:


This recipe is for 1 dozen eggs which of course makes 24 deviled eggs.

While you boil your eggs, fry about 5 or 6 slices of bacon until they are very crisp.  Drain them well on paper towels.  When you slice the eggs and place the yolks in a bowl, smash well with a fork.  Then add some Hellmans mayo. (Believe me Hellmans works best. Do not use Miracle Whip ! )  Add just enough mayo to make a nice smooth mixture. A little dry is better than too wet.  Add abt. a tsp. of yellow mustard and whip well with the fork. Then crumble the bacon and mix it into the egg mixture.  Stuff your eggs and sprinkle with a little paprika.

Every get together that I am invited to, I am asked to make these eggs!

This sounds great. I'm going to a dance party and we have to bring a dish. This sound simple to make and easy to carry. Thanks for the recipe.
