I am kind of a sucker for deviled eggs. Eggs in general I love, but I especially like the possibilities for flavoring and filling the yolks. Deviled eggs are little bites of bliss and a great party food. These Bacon Horseradish Deviled Eggs from TK member Carrie were spectacular. The smokiness from the bacon combined with the sharpness from the horseradish was really otherworldly.
To make these you will need: 3 strips of crispy bacon, 6 hard boiled eggs, pickle juice, horseradish, mustard, mayonnaise, paprika, salt and pepper.
Start by slicing all of your eggs in half with a sharp knife.
Separate the yolks from the whites and place all of the yolks in a bowl.
Add your mayo …
Then your mustard …
And a drizzle of pickle juice …
Along with a nice dollop of horseradish. Yum.
Mash it all together well until it is creamy.
Break up two pieces of the bacon and mix well.
Add spoonfuls of the yolk mixture back into the egg whites and sprinkle the tops with paprika.
Finish by breaking up the last piece of bacon and garnishing the tops with it. These are crunchy, creamy, salty and delicious. You will adore them. Thank you to Carrie for this delicious treat. Visit her website Kiss My Whisk for other great recipes!
