Deviled Eggs with Candied Bacon

Deviled Eggs with Candied Bacon

I am so deliriously happy warmer weather is right around the corner, I can’t even begin to express myself… except maybe by talking incessantly about picnics.  Yes, I am definitely on a picnic kick.  And whether you are packing up for a picnic or a road trip this summer, Deviled Eggs are the way to go.  Check out the video:

This recipe in particular is excellent because it’s a little salty, a little sweet, and if you want to kick it up a notch, it can be spicy too.  There are no crumbs and minimal mess.

The hardest part about this particular recipe it is not eating all the Millionare’s Bacon as soon as it’s cool enough to handle.  It’s also known as Pig Candy or Candied Bacon.  Usually I don’t call it anything, because I’m too busy stuffing it into my mouth to talk.

Think about reserving a piece or two of the Millionaire Bacon for your next Bloody Mary.  The sweet, salty, spicy combo is a trifecta that’s hard to beat.

A little shake of Tajin is mighty nice too.  This is a chili lime spice that is a great replacement for salt.  YUM!

Recipe Notes

*To make hard boiled eggs: Bring water to a boil, gently place eggs into water, cook for 30 seconds, add 12 ice cubes, bring water to almost boiling and cook eggs for 13 minutes.  Place hot eggs in a ice water and peel under cold running water.

If you can find Beau Monde seasoning, this is a nice alternative to paprika.  Simply replace the paprika with 1/2 teaspoon of the Beau Monde.  This is a spice blend by Island Spices of powdered onion, garlic, and celery seed.

My favorite toppings for deviled eggs is a combination of Millionaire Bacon and Valentina.  These two together give the eggs a sweet, salty, spicy kick that is hard to beat.
