smoked bacon deviled eggs {& perfectly fail-proof bacon}

smoked bacon deviled eggs easter recipe 2
i will not be making really cute easter baskets or decor this year,
i won’t be making gifts to take to teachers {we don’t have any}
or neighbors {cause who gives easter gifts outside of family…?}
i’ll leave that to the super crafties of the world.
what i look forward to more than anything though during spring…
{besides the easter candy…}
are deviled eggs.
i freakin can’t leave them alone.
so i made a pretty big batch last night,
but we kicked em up and they were a HUGE hit
at my girl’s night last night.
{ps, i really needed that ladies. thanks so much. will post the deets on our
favorite things/craft girls night tomorrow!}
we ate them all gone, i was pretty impressed.
the real, crunchy bacon adds a hint of texture and crunch and of course…
bacon flavor… so that doesn’t hurt.
i also use smoked paprika, which with the bacon, sings it’s little seasoned heart out.
so i guess you could use the regular kind. i guess… but really. really guys…

last time i was in arizona, my brother and sister made us breakfast and my brother taught me
his absolutely fail-proof way to cook bacon perfectly….
how to cook perfect bacon no burn

you ready for this?

in the microwave.
you heard me.
don’t be afraid.
how to cook perfect bacon no burn 2
perfect, never-burn bacon
1/2 package thick cut original bacon
place on a microwavable plate, overlapping the pieces about 1/4 inch. place in microwave for 5-6 minutes. carefully flip the bacon over, placing this time on paper towel. {you could flip onto another plate to make it easy} return to the microwave for 1-2 minutes. {or more, depending on how crispy you want it}.
done. the strips will separate nice, or crumble nice.
the plate just wipes up, you didn’t have to babysit it for 20 minutes,
and the smell is just in the microwave. and very hard to burn.
thanks for that mac, i will be making bacon WAY too often now…and look how yummy it looks on my deviled eggs.
which is also a recipe i will be using for a long long time…

    I thought I left comment all ready but here it goes again. I made this and the 1 1/2 c mustard was just too much! It was overpowering and made it super runny. Are you sure it’s the correct amount? I really want to make it again but I am afraid of the outcome! Just thought I would check in with you 😀

      Try adding as you go until you like the texture. I usually just eye-ball it and make sure that the volume of mayo to mustard to yolks is about the even, but I would add the mayo and mustard as you go until you like the texture. it may be slightly less to get the thickness you like. I like it a bit thicker too. 😉
