Last weekend for my mom’s birthday, I made these Deviled Eggs with Bacon. I made two dozen and they were devoured in minutes! Guess who will be making the deviled eggs for Easter this year?

If you are the one making the deviled eggs, you have to try this recipe! I was so thrilled with how delicious they were. My deviled eggs don’t usually turn out and are too plain.

For this recipe, I turned to my grandma’s cookbook again. It rarely fails me. The bacon and pickles make the flavor stand out. They also add a lot of volume so you will definitely have leftover filling!

What is the Best Way to Hard Boil Eggs?

Over the years, I have tried several methods for hard boiling eggs. Here is the method that works for me every time:

  • Use the freshest eggs.
  • Put the eggs in the pan before adding water from the tap.
  • Use about 6 cups of water.
  • Turn on the stove after putting the pan on the burner.
  • Once the water comes to a rolling boil, turn off the stove and cover the pan.
  • Leave the pan on the hot burner (after turning it off) for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and place eggs in a bowl of ice water for 5 minutes.

I have found that this method makes the eggs easy to peel and the yolk is perfectly yellow, without turning grey. Do you have a different way that works for you?
