Bacon Deviled Eggs

So normally I post recipes and only have the opinion of my local friends to go on if they taste good.  They are the ones who get me delivering food to try before I post it so I know I won’t steer you wrong.  I don’t know if that is the safest, as I do have nice friends and they may be biased to make me feel better.  I doubt it, but just in case, I made this recipe for some of the most highly respected names in the Paleo Community as well as Best-Selling Cookbook Authors.  So know this, before you make this that The Food Lover’s Kitchen, The Fat Burning Man, Alyson Bridge, The Free-Range Human, and Pastured Kitchen all inhaled these when I made them.  They couldn’t see it, but I was doing a happy dance on the inside as it was the ultimate compliment.  So go on and make great things, like this recipe with confidence that you will love it.

So as most of you know if you read my emails or blog, I have had some significantly life changing events happen recently.  Well today I signed on the dotted line to finalize my medical separation from the United States Marine Corps.  I have sustained many injuries over the course of 12 years and they became too much to continue my service at my once highest caliber.  This is both a scary and exciting time for me and I am ready to face the road ahead.  It is crazy for me to think that my entire adult life I have been doing the same job all over the world, but the time has come for a change.  That door closed but I will be opening many more and I appreciate all your love and support as always.  This website will be my full time passion, so get ready to see even more of me.  I look forward to only getting better for you.  All I ask of you, is to just please keep visiting, sharing my photos and recipes and telling people about the amazing Banana Bread and Pulled Pork.

Hard Boiled Eggs
  1. My amazing friend and mentor Nom Nom Paleo has done an amazing series on how to boil the perfect egg, so use her reference HERE
Deviled Eggs
  1. Once your eggs are cooled, evenly cut them in half the long way and using a spoon gently remove the yolks to a large mixing bowl
  2. Set your eggs aside on a plate
  3. Add your diced avocado, bacon fat, franks red hot sauce, about 2/3's of your bacon and sea salt to the egg yolks in the bowl
  4. Mix well by hand or use a hand mixer if your lazy like me
  5. Once well blended, using a spoon, gently fill your eggs with your egg yolk avocado mixture
  6. Move to a serving plate and sprinkle with the remainder of your bacon bits and garnish with paprika
  7. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve and enjoy
Notes
You can substitute the bacon fat with duck fat, beef tallow, or any other fat of your choice.

  1. George,

    I couldn’t think of a better classic dish to include in my Labor Day picnic recipes lineup. mangiapaleo.com/15-paleo-labor-day-menu-recipes
    I mean, bacon fat? C’mon! It’s perfect. ;)

    Ps. I still make your pumpkin cookies religiously when it’s not even autumn. And I’m not ashamed. Thanks for your recipes and inspiration!

  2. This was horrible. Egg leaked out leaving pockets of air in the shell. They weren’t at all easy to peel. It was pretty well a waste. I wouldn’t recommend.

  3. I did a test run of these guys last night. So good! Since I was just testing, and only using 2 eggs instead of 6, I skipped the avocado & hot sauce, used chemical-free turkey bacon (just what I had on hand), and olive oil instead of bacon fat (because turkey bacon just doesn’t make much grease). They were really tasty, & even my picky-eater husband approved highly! Going to make a full batch next time, with the avocado added in, & hot sauce on the side. (Hubby loves it, I don’t.)

    1. I agree. I followed the recipe exactly and it is crazy salty. I had a few others try and we were all in agreement that these were too salty to eat. I think the recipe could be good if reduced. I’d just go by taste next time.

  4. These are a few of my favorite things…lala!! Thank you very much for sharing your recipes and for inspiring me to serve my family great WhOLE food!!

  5. Hrm, I’m considering making these for a potluck this weekend (you’re my secret weapon when it comes to potluck contributions), but I’m wondering how far ahead of time you can make these? Since avocados discolor so quickly, do you think the egg-yolk mixture would look brown and ugly if I made them a day ahead of time? Or is there not enough avocado for it to make a big difference?

    Thanks!
    Jo

  6. These are absolutely delicious!!!! I would probably omit the salt next time. A lil too saltywhen you eat half the batch. I think the bacon that I use(Costco) is salty enough.

  7. Well I was perusing paleo sites to find something to take to my family reunion this weekend. I’m the only Paleo-ite (??) in the family and everyone has to bring a dish to share. Naturally I wanted to bring something that I could eat (since there won’t be much there that I can) but that will also fool everyone else. Based on the drool on my chin, and all the rave reviews, I think I just found the winner!
    I may have to make a test batch tonight… you know, just to be sure they’re delicious ;)

    Thanks for everything you do! This Paleoite couldn’t survive without all of these amazing recipes!

      1. George, these are brilliant! The test run was a success. So delicious – and pretty darn easy too.
        Only change I made was adding a bit of dijon – mainly b/c I have an open jar of it and am trying to be sure it doesn’t go to waste :)
        Thank you!! Thank you!!

  8. Today is the second time I’ve made these and, once again, they did not disappoint! I didn’t have frank’s this time though so I used home made sriracha (nom nom paleo). I don’t know whether I prefer the franks but I’ve even on a bit of a sriracha binge lately. Thank you for coming up with yummy, healthy food for me and my family!

  9. Made these today as a test… my husband doesn’t like mayo (I know, right? Crazy!) so he never eats Deviled Eggs. He LOVED these. And so did my 5 year old son. And so did I. We may have a fight over who gets to eat them. :-)

  10. Just made these for our BBQ tonight and they are amazing! The best deviled eggs I’ve made and I can’t wait to serve them up. First I have to keep my husband from eating them all! Thanks for the simple, creative and delicious recipes.

  11. These are fantastic! I made them for guests last week and they loved them. I’ll make them again — and often!

  12. GEORGE! These eggs! OMG. These might be the best thing I’ve ever made from your site…but IDK. There are just too many amazing recipes.

    I made them for a party and tripled the recipe. Needless to say, they were inhaled by all of my (non-paleo) guests.

    Thank you for all of your great recipes and keep doing what you are doing. You have great talent!

  13. I have been trying all morning to order the ebooks bundle…and it is saying “out of stock”…Help please!
    Thanks,
    Claire

  14. I made these recently for a paleo potluck and everyone loved them. I would have made more but only 8/12 eggs peeled right… I’ve literally tried every method and some still stick to the shell. Oh well, I ate the mistakes :)

    1. The secret to peeling eggs is after they are boiled, pour off some of the hot water and fill pan with ice cubes and let set for about 10-15 minutes. Then peel. The shells will not stick to the egg when you do this. A home-ec teacher in high school showed us this trick and I have been using it for years.

  15. AMAZING! Served these today, everyone LOVED them! These eggs will be a regular for bringing to things for sharing! Thank you!
