Bourbon Candied Bacon Deviled Eggs

Bourbon Candied Bacon Deviled Eggs | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

Y’all know how much I love a deviled egg, and y’all know how much I love bacon, so putting the two of them together just makes a whole lotta sense in my crazy little world of kitchen experimenting. The texture is perhaps a bit off, due to the oil content of the bacon, but who cares about that? Certainly not I, I have way too many other things to be concerned about. Like how Brenna is slowly destroying my new bed sheets because she refuses to jump on the bed anymore, using her claws instead to slowly drag her troublesome body up onto the bed in an attempt to make my life a living nightmare. Like my car not having had an oil change since Bob bought it for me, as well as it having several recalls that need to be addressed; I’m just waiting for the sunroof to shatter on me any day now. Like my job slowly driving me insane with its endless meetings about nothing. What exactly is the purpose, other than to drive me absolutely bat shit crazy with boredom? So why would I ever waste time worrying about a deviled egg? Nope, not gonna happen. The only time I will waste on deviled eggs with bourbon candied bacon will be the time it takes to get one of the little yummy bites of heaven into my mouth. Then I’ll start worrying about how long I should wait to eat the second, or third, or tenth. There is no such thing as too many deviled eggs.

Suggestions:

  • See HERE for How to Hard-Boil Eggs.
  • The filling mixture will have a different texture than most deviled eggs, due to the oil in the bacon. It may look funny, but don’t worry, it will taste amazing. If you want to make the egg mixture thicker, blend everything together, except for the Bourbon Candied Bacon. Mince the Bourbon Candied Bacon with a sharp kitchen knife, and fold it gently into the egg filling mixture before filling the eggs.
  • Store the extra Bourbon Candied Bacon between sheets of parchment paper in a Ziploc bag.
