I twisted this recipe last night as I felt the mayo would disrupt the bacon flavor. So I scoured the kitchen and modified it by adding:
3 strips bacon, .5 cup cheddar cheese, 2 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tsp raspberry sugar, 2 tbsp Miracle Whip and a touch of salt and pepper. It has the consistency of cookie dough and is very pleasing taste wise. Thank you for the original idea!
These did not impress me at all! I made them the other day for my parents and sister and we were all very bummed! They looked fantastic but the texture and flavor were horrible! We are used to a smooth filling and the bacon felt weird and also got chewy or soggy since I made them and served them 2 hours later. I added the chives right in the filling instead and that resulted in an almost "puke" flavor!! I may attempt them again but use no chives at all and just garnish each egg with a big chunck of bacon on top instead of putting it in the filling so it keeps it crispness!
I tired this recipe and found it to be a hit amongst coworkers at my Thanksgiving lunch at work. The bacon was a brilliant addition to a customary recipe. Looking forward to making these at my families Thanksgiving dinner!
I made this at a party, and everyone loved them. I didn't have a pastry bag, which I feel hindered people from eating them, as they looked pretty sloppy. But once it was in their mouths, I heard nothing but praises. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, I will most definately use it again! :)
Easy to do and totally delicious. The combination of bacon, cheddar cheese, mustard and horeradish made for some very tasty deviled eggs. I made a few modifications from the original recipe to suit our tastes. I used smoked paprika in place of plain, and instead of garnishing the eggs with chives, used extra bacon. After frying up 6 pieces of thick-cut bacon, I broke two slices into largish pieces to use as a garnish and chopped the remaining bacon into very small pieces for the filling. The smoked paprika not only added visual appeal but also enhanced the smokiness of the bacon in the filling. The crispiness of the bacon garnish added an extra crunch. Basically, a very good deviled eggs recipe that we'll use again.
