Did someone say barbecue party? These delicious deviled eggs are dressed and ready to go! Beautiful? Check. Tasty? Check. Easy to make? Check. Inexpensive? Check. Will satisfy a hungry crowd? You bet. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc. to accommodate any size crowd you have.
I’m serving them the traditional way here, but you know that sometimes I like to serve my deviled eggs in egg cups. They’re so cute. The egg cups, I mean. Well, actually, so are the eggs. They’re the perfect little finger food that come with their own bite-sized containers.
Super simple ingredients. So easy to make. The chopped green onion and barbecue sauce play off each other beautifully both in taste and presentation. I love the beautiful colors in these eggs. And the taste? Out of this world!
These definitely won’t last at your next party so make lots. I’m just sayin’.
- 6 large eggs, hard cooked. I recommend the steam method to cook your eggs.
- 3 tbsp. ranch dressing
- 2 tbsp. chopped green onion
- 3 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 3 tbsp. barbecue sauce
- Fry up the bacon in a pan and drain on a paper towel. Another method is to bake it in the oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking oil if not using non-stick foil. Arrange your bacon on the cookie sheet and place on the middle rack of a cold oven. Close the oven door and set your oven to 400 degrees F. Check in about 15 minutes. If your bacon is golden brown, then it's done. If not, then give it a few more minutes. Once your bacon has cooled then crumble into small pieces.
- Peel cooked eggs and cut in half lengthwise. If serving in egg cups, leave the shell on and remove the tops with an egg topper.
- Remove yolks to a medium bowl and mash yolks.
- Add the ranch dressing, green onion and bacon. Mix until creamy. I like to use a mixer.
- Pipe or spoon the yolk mixture into the egg whites. You may want to use a large round tip if piping, rather than a star tip. Depending on how fine your bacon crumbles are, sometimes the crumbles get stuck in the tip. Not fun.
- Put your barbecue sauce in a condiment bottle and drizzle over the top of your eggs. Enjoy!
