You didn’t think a long time would pass without me singing the praises of the glorious white orb (or brown orb depending on your preference) did you? I think not.
Eggs are a big part of my diet. Not only do I love their flavor, but they are just so accommodating in the recipe department. Don’t you love it when your ingredients cooperate with you?Take today’s recipe for example. I love deviled eggs. I’ve posted about them. I’ve read your posts about them. Is there such a thing as a bad deviled egg? Not in my house, there isn’t. Okay, okay so my kids won’t touch them. Hubbyman and I more than make up for the non-eggers' lack of enthusiasm.
Actually, the yummy stuffed egg recipe I’m sharing with you today is a good one to serve to those a little shy about eating deviled eggs. This recipe does NOT have any vinegar in it, so it’s milder than traditional deviled eggs. Plus it contains cheese and bacon. I mean, come on, who doesn’t like cheese and bacon? Um, besides my children, that is. Oh, they like cheese and bacon and eggs, they just prefer that all parties remain in their respective, designated, separated areas on a plate. *sigh*Anywhooo, these are super simple, and really do taste great. These little stuffed gems are a fun twist on the traditional omelet. They would be perfect at a tailgate party, football buffet, or holiday gathering.
Bacon and Cheddar Deviled Eggs
6 Hard boiled eggs, peeled and split in half
3 Tablespoons Mayo
1 heaping teaspoon grainy, Dijon, or regular mustard
2 Tablespoons grated Cheddar cheese (grate it yourself!)
4 strips bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1 teaspoon dried parsley
Salt to taste
2 green onions, sliced both white and green parts
Separate the hard boiled yolks from the eggs,
and place the yolks in a large mixing bowl. Place the egg whites, cut side up on a plate. I usually put a paper towel down on the plate first ~ it keeps the whites from sliding around while you stuff them.Mash the yolks with a fork. Add the mayo and mustard, and stir well.I like this kind of mustard, but Dijon would work great, too. Regular mustard would be just fine as well. Stir in the cheese, parsley, salt, white pepper, and most of the bacon. Keep a bit of bacon to garnish with later. Using a small spoon, fill each half of the egg whites, really mounding it high. A spoon works better than a pastry bag because the bacon would clog the tip. Garnish with the reserved bacon and the green onions.Eat. Devour. Make yummy noises. Protect your portion from your egg stealing hubby. So, what great eggs-pectations have you created lately?
