Years ago I made these bacon and cheese deviled eggs for Eric and he loved them. (I'm not a big deviled egg person, ironic since I love egg salad). Well, we were over at his parents for dinner and his dad meantioned something about craving deviled eggs. Eric immediately perked up and said something along the lines of, "You should try Krissy's deviled eggs." And his mom's face lit up and she suggested I make them as appetitizer for Christmas dinner.
So along with chocolate covered cranberries and spinach balls, I made these deviled eggs for Christmas and they were a hit!
Recipe from here.
12 hard boiled eggs, peeled
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used low fat)
1 tablespoon honey mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons cheddar cheese, shredded
Parsley for ganish, optional
Cut each egg in half lengthwise. Spoon out the yolks and place them in a bowl. Set the whites aside.
With a fork, mash the yolks together. Stir in mayonnaise, honey mustard, salt, and pepper. Add bacon and cheese and stir.
Divide the yolk mixture evenly between the 24 egg white halves. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
These worked great for Christmas because I could easily make them ahead of time and just store them in the fridge.
