THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS LINKY PARTY #24 (Egg Recipes) and Bacon & Cheese Deviled Eggs

The Theme is: Incredible Edible Egg Recipes 
(Bring out your best Egg Dish!)

Not another Deviled Egg recipe? Yep, but this one is oohh so different and very unique. I have to admit (I do NOT eat these, not today, not in the past and there is no plan in the future either!) I HATE Hard Boil Eggs, I HATE Over-Easy Eggs and I HATE Egg Salad! But, my family LOVES them all! I don't know how that happened, but it just did. So, let me just say I make a lot of egg recipes, I just don't eat a lot of egg recipes. I do like eggs but only 2 ways; scrambled or over hard!

When I saw this recipe over at Sparkle Pants Girl, I just knew that my husband and kids would LOVE these, and I was soooo right! I really don't think they will ever let me make another Deviled Egg recipe besides this new one. They said the bacon and the cheese inside was just out of this world. My one daughter Kayley was like "MOM. wow these are so good. Can I have another one, and another and can't I just have one more?" and she did NOT want to share them with her dad. She told him "no, these aren't that good, you don't need to try them". Well, he did try them and then guess what. He asked if he boiled a few more eggs, could I make some more. (and yes, I did)!

Can I just tell you, I only came across the recipe like 4 days ago and I've already had to make 2 batches, okay now 3 times (made it again last night for Egg Salad Sandwiches). I would say that makes this is a winner recipe! What have you made lately with EGGS? I am excited to see all the Egg Dishes linked-up this week. I need a new Egg Casserole for Church on Easter Sunday we are having a Breakfast Potluck and I am gonna be lookin' here for a scrumptious recipe!

Here it is the easiest Deviled Egg recipe in town and it's so delicious too (according to my family)!! And they are really good judges, believe me they judge ALL my food! This will for sure be on my Easter menu this year. What is your very special, one of a kind, out of this world EGG recipe? LINK IT UP!

Bacon & Cheese Deviled Eggs (or Egg Salad Sandwiches)
original recipe from Sparkle Pants Girl

6 hard boiled eggs
1/3 cup of mayonnaise (or maybe a little more if needed)
1-1/2 tsp mustard
3 or 4 strips bacon, finely chopped
¼ cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded
a few sprinkles of green onions, finely chopped
freshly ground pepper

Hard Boil Eggs first, and let cool. Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Mix together egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, cheese, bacon and green onion into a bowl. We use a potato masher and mash the ingredients together to get the right consistency. If you need too add a little more mayonnaise, go for it. Sprinkle the eggs with a little paprika and freshly ground pepper and you got yourself a tasty appetizer!

My girls saved the leftover yolk mix and made an egg salad sandwich and said "this is how we should always make our egg salad with bacon and a little bit of cheese". I think I will go boil some more eggs for Egg Salad Sandwiches this week, using this NEW recipe.

  1. These look GOOD! I love non-traditional deviled eggs. I made one last year that you dip the top of the egg white in black and white seasame seeds before you fill them. So pretty and different. Gotta find that recipe....

  2. I've been making my special deviled eggs for many years, and everyone loves them. But I think I'll be trying these out soon, they look yummy.

  3. AHHH! This is genius. I have chickens and have just started getting eggs. I have no idea what to do with all these eggs. I am so glad you are doing this. I can't wait to see what people post. :) Thanks.
    I am having a silverware garden marker giveaway right now. Please stop by and say hi!

  4. Thanks for hosting! I'm looking forward to all the ideas for eggs. Have a wonderful day!

  5. I am so sorry - I had a bunch of tabs open and got confused linked up to the wrong party! Eek! Please take mine down (#5) since it has nothing to do with eggs! :(

    Your deviled eggs look great, btw - I always make them for family get togethers and just know I'll be making them in a couple of weeks for Easter! The bacon adds such a nice touch, maybe I should surprise everyone? ;)

  6. Hi Tina,

  15. These deviled eggs sounds insane. I love the addition of bacon and cheese. I feel like Ina but ... you really turned up the volume on a classic. Yum.

  16. I think deviled eggs are an aquired taste. My dad's family loves then and serves them for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mom's side of the family hates them.

    Once in a blue moon, we have them at our house. Dad and I love them. My brother and mom still hate them. Odd how that works.

    Thanks for letting me know about your party!

  17. I am not fond of eggs either, but I can eat them if they have lots of flavor, so I might just be able to eat these deviled eggs. Thanks for sharing your recipe with the Hearth and Soul Hop!
