Who can resist some to-die-for deviled eggs with bacon? I certainly can’t! These deviled eggs were inspired by some maple bacon potato chips that I found in my local grocery store. I thought…maple? bacon? How could I go wrong? I knew I had to try them.
They didn’t disappoint. Yummmmy! I knew that I had to incorporate these flavors into my next deviled egg creation. I must say that these flavor-packed little appetizers didn’t disappoint either. You must try them and don’t skimp on the bacon either!
Don’t you just love these egg cups? The colors are quite vibrant. Unfortunately, I took these photos in the mid to late afternoon, so the lighting doesn’t quite do them justice. I will plan better the next time. The morning light is definitely better.
Just for fun, on occasion I like to serve deviled eggs in egg cups. The egg cups allow you to infuse just a little more personality into your presentation. If you have egg cups that match the theme of your gathering, then this is perfect! You can even use the egg cups as placeholders. Cut off a piece of twine long enough to tie around the base of your egg cup, create a name tag by writing your guest’s name on a piece of card stock, punch a hole in the name tag, run the string through the hole and tie it around the base of your egg cup. Voila! You have a placeholder.
Please give these maple bacon deviled eggs a try and let me know what you think.
- 6 large eggs, hard-cooked. For beautiful and frustration-free eggs, I use the steam method for hard cooking my eggs.
- 3 tbsp. mayo
- 2 tsp. pure maple syrup (adjust to taste)
- 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- If you are serving in egg cups, as pictured here, then you can leave the shell on and use an egg topper to remove the top. If serving the traditional way, peel eggs and cut them in half lengthwise.
- Remove yolks into a medium bowl. Mash yolks with a fork.
- Add mayo, maple syrup and crumbled bacon, (set some of the bacon aside to use as a garnish if desired). Mix until creamy. I like to use a mixer.
- Spoon or pipe the mixture into your egg whites. Garnish with crumbled bacon.
