Pro tips for the best bacon deviled egg results
How can you modify a classic deviled egg recipe?
The best thing about our deviled eggs and bacon recipe is how easy it is to switch it up! The options are practically endless, whether you want to substitute pickle relish with vinegar or add hot sauce to give it an added kick. Feel free to alter the ingredients or introduce more in your egg yolk mixture, or simply change the garnishes to give it a personal touch or customize it to your loved ones’ preferences.
How do you make hard-boiled eggs easy to peel?
When bringing your bacon deviled eggs recipe to life, there are a few tips and tricks that can quickly make the egg peeling process fast and easy. First, it’s best practice to wait for the water to start boiling before putting in your eggs, instead of boiling them along with the cold water. What’s more, ensure there’s enough water for the eggs to be fully submerged and your heat is lowered once you’ve added them to the pot.
Keep in mind that you don’t need to add baking soda, vinegar or salt at this point. These ingredients are often said to be useful for creating easy-peel eggs, but that’s an old wive’s tale.
Can you make a deviled egg and bacon recipe ahead of time?
The short answer is, yes! Deviled eggs are a great make-ahead appetizer when you won’t have time to prepare the dish on the day of your next occasion. After making your egg yolk mixture, you can cover your dish or put it in an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator. It will stay good for up to two days. Make sure to wait before garnishing your eggs with smoked paprika, chives and, best of all, crumbled bacon until right before you plan to serve them for the best results!
