Keto Deviled Eggs with Bacon

Main Ingredients

  • 12 Eggs
  • 4 Slices Bacon – Crumbled
  • ½ cup Mayo – I recommend Dukes because there’s no added sugar + no carbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoon Hot Sauce
  • Paprika (Smoked or Sweet)

Step By Step

Boil the eggs. Start with cold water + a teaspoon of salt to help prevent cracks. Some people recommend adding eggs to boiling water, but both of my grandmothers told me to always start with cold water so the eggs heat evenly – which also decreases your risk of a cracked egg situation. When in doubt I always go old school:)

Boil on high heat until you start to see large bubbles surfacing every few seconds. Then, cover the pan with a lid, remove it from the heat and set a timer for 15 minutes.

Go ahead and fry 4-6 slices of bacon. Resist the urge to eat the bacon while you wait on the eggs. If you’re honest with yourself, go ahead and fry a few more pieces just to snack on. You deserve something extra for doing all of this cooking:)

Please don’t hate me for my next suggestion.

Now that we’ve boiled the eggs for 15 minutes, we are going to (carefully) move them to an ice bath for 45 minutes. If you can’t wait that long at least put them in there until they are cool enough to handle – an ice bath makes it easier to peel eggs, and when it comes to deviled eggs, it’s all about presentation. We don’t want to serve folks jacked up eggs, right?

The Easy Way To Peel An Egg

We’re going to make a crack all around the egg by gently tapping it on the side of the bowl. Then we’re going to apply a tiny amount of pressure to break the membrane between the egg and the shell by rolling it in our hands (like its a meatball) The egg should peel easily – If for whatever reason your egg isn’t cooperating try peeling it under cold running water.

Once you’ve peeled all the eggs slice each one lengthwise and carefully remove the yolks with a spoon or your fingers. Place the egg whites on a paper towel covered plate

Smash the yolks with a fork before you add in other ingredients. Once the yolks are smooth, you can start adding mayo and other ingredients – you can use a spoon, hand mixer, or immersion blender to combine.

If you’re making deviled eggs ahead, this is where your journey ends. Wrap the whites with plastic wrap and place the yolks in an airtight container or ziplock bag and store in the refrigerator for up to two days.

When you’re ready to assemble, arrange the egg whites on a deviled egg platter or tray and spoon in the yolk mixture. If you prefer a less hands-on technique, you can place the yolk mixture into a piping bag or make a piping bag by putting the yolk mixture into a freezer bag and cut a small hole in the corner – either way works

Garnish with Paprika and crumbled bacon and prepare to swoon.
