I must admit I went searching for a deviled egg recipe just a little different than what we generally make and found this one on the Food Network. It's from Trisha Yearwood. I cut the recipe back but followed her basic instructions. You have to have a bit of patience and not be in a hurry with this. Take the time to boil the eggs properly and cool them down properly.
- 6 large eggs
- 3 strips bacon - cooked crispy
- 1 tbsp. + 1/2 tsp. chives - chopped small + extra for garnish
- 3 tbsp. sour cream
- 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
- salt and black pepper to taste
- Place the eggs in a medium saucepan with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, cover and let the eggs stand in the water for 20 minutes.
- Pour off the hot water and fill the pan with cold water. Let the eggs sit in the cold water for 5 minutes.Then crack the eggshells and peel. Cover and chill for about an hour.
- Have your bacon cooked crispy and let drain on paper towels while you are getting the eggs cooled.
- Then use a food processor to pulse the bacon fine or chop finely with a sharp knife and set aside.
- In a medium bowl add the sour cream, the mayonnaise and chives along with some salt and black pepper to taste. Mix well.
- When the eggs cool down, slice them in half and remove the yolk. Place the yolk in a food processor and pulse until fine. Add the yolks to the bowl with the mayo and sour cream mixture. Mix well.
- Grab the bacon you have set aside and add the bacon to the eggs, reserving some for garnish.
- Add in the chives (saving some for garnish) and mix well.
- Fill each half by spoonfuls or use a piping bag. Sprinkle on remaining bacon and chives for garnish.
These eggs are creamy and I really like the tiny bits of bacon and chive running through them. I would however next time add a zip of flavor by adding in a teaspoon of mustard. Other than that I think these deviled eggs are really delicious and believe they will be a big hit with your guests. This recipe uses only 6 eggs, but you'll definitely want to make the full dozen as they won't last long! Enjoy.
