Description

Deviled eggs are taken to the next level with some bacon fat, sliced bacon, and pickled jalapeños to cut through all the richness, for the perfect bite.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 8 eggs, hard boiled (I like to use my instant pot to make quick and easy work of it)
  • 4 slices of bacon, cooked – fat strained and reserved
  • 1 tablespoon bacon fat (see above)
  • 34 tablespoons Paleo mayonnaise, depending on size of eggs/yolks (I use the recipe from the whole30 book)
  • Pinch or two of salt (if needed after tasting deviled egg mixture. This will depend on the saltiness of the bacon fat)

For the pickled jalapeños:

  • 12 jalapeños, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic

Instructions

  1. Make the pickled jalapeños by bringing the cup of water to a boil.  Add the garlic and simmer for a few minutes. Add the vinegar and dissolve the salt.  Pour over sliced jalapeños and set aside.
  2. Slice the hard boiled eggs in half.  Remove the yolks and add them to a mini food processor
  3. Add mayonnaise and bacon fat to the food processor and blend until smooth.  Taste and adjust seasoning as needed
  4. Scoop the yolk mixture into a plastic bag with a corner snipped off or into a piping bag (this is totally unnecessary and for appearance only. You can fill the whites however is most convenient for you). Carefully fill each egg in whatever pattern suits your fancy
  5. Break the cooked bacon pieces into 1 inch pieces and place one atop each egg.  Top with a pickled jalapeño slice
