I’m a sucker for great deviled eggs. They’re so poppable and delicious. I’ve been obsessed with deviled eggs for a few years now, and while I love the classic recipe it’s the fun flavor combinations that really get me excited. One of my all-time flavor pairings is bacon and jalapeno. The salty bacon and spicy chilies go together so well! I can’t really believe I’ve never made them into a deviled egg before, but today is the day!
Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs Recipe Tips
- Cook your eggs the day before and let them cool in the fridge overnight. Cold hard boiled eggs are 5 million times easier to peel than eggs at are still warm. I’ve tried them peeling eggs at every temp. Warm egg shells hang onto the egg white and you won’t get a smooth peel away.
- Cook your bacon in the oven. It only takes about 15 minutes and you can spend that time prepping the rest of your ingredients and smashing the egg yolks.
- Use a piping bag or Ziploc bag to get the filling into the eggs. It’s easier than using a spoon and you’ll be able to control the amount of filling easily too.
These eggs come together really quickly once you have your ingredients prepped. Just smash your egg yolks in a bowl with a fork, add in the mayo & cream cheese for a rich flavor, add the seasonings & the jalapeno popper fixin’s and you’re in business! These eggs can be made a head of time and travel well. They’ll be the talk of your next potluck and everyone will want the recipe.
