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.

  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 ⅔'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
You can substitute the bacon fat with duck fat, beef tallow, or any other fat of your choice.

  1. Made these today and they are nearly perfect! Next time I will use more ripe avocados. Any idea how many calories are in these?

  2. This recipe. I can’t imagine life without it now. It’s perfect for parties, potlucks–even picky eaters like it! I was even able to make a tasty vegetarian version without the bacon and bacon fat (although it wasn’t as good as the version WITH bacon, of course!). And it’s SO EASY to boot! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. I first made these for my husband, because he hates traditional deviled eggs (the mustard, mostly) and LOVES bacon. I subbed 2 teaspoons of sriracha for the Frank’s. Once I tasted them, I made another batch for me! With far less hot sauce (I’m a spice wimp), but a little bit of mustard.

    Brilliant! I’ll definitely be bringing these to parties in the future. Thanks for sharing!

  4. George,

    I couldn’t think of a better classic dish to include in my Labor Day picnic recipes lineup.
    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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
