TMTT: Deviled Eggs

Note:    Deviled eggs just seem to be one of those things that you have to have at Easter.      Probably because so many people are dying them and they don't know what else to do but make salads and such so they won't go to waste!   ha!     I grew up eating deviled eggs, but I didn't really love deviled eggs until I started making them this way. 

Deviled Eggs

5 eggs
1/2 cup Mayo
1 Tbsp. Mustard
1 Tbsp. Vinegar
Tabasco, to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 slices bacon, fried crispy and crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Boil your eggs.   Don't be intimidated... just place those eggs in cold water, pop them on the stove and turn on the eye.    After about 15 minutes, turn off the stove, cover the pan and let them sit while you make your filling!      Mix together your mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, tobasco, salt and pepper.    Rinse your eggs under cool water, peel them and slice in half lengthwise.     Remove the yolk and place in a small bowl and put the whites on a plate.   Dump one of the "white" halves in with your yolks.    Mash up the yolk mixture.      Mix your mayo mixture in with your mashed eggs.     Mix well.     Fold in bacon and shredded cheese.    Spoon into the egg whites.     No deviled egg is complete without a sprinkle of paprika on top!      Refrigerate until ready to serve.      What am I talking about?    Why wait... just eat those delicious babies!

I need some recipe inspiration.   I am headed over to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!    Come on, let's go!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've seen and tried dozens of deviled egg recipes, this one is in the surprisingly small percentage of recipes that remembered the old adage... "Everything is better with bacon." OK, so maybe it's not an adage but it should be. I'm pretty obsessed with deviled eggs... check this out: Deviled Egg Obsessed
