Bacon Deviled Eggs


I asked my kids and husband if they knew what today was... they said Tuesday.  Yes, it's Tuesday, but it's also Curry and Comfort's 3rd Birthday.  It was February 25, 2011 when I shakily typed my first post to say I was going to share my recipes with the world out there. **Insert the sound of crickets chirping here **   I was officially blogging, but only my mother was coming by to check out what I had to say.  A lot has changed since that first day, so what have a learned the last three years?  I have learned so much.  First things first... I have loved getting to know so many people out there that love sharing recipes and food as much as I do.  I have enjoyed learning to improve my food photos... my first photos were down right embarrassing. I think taking the photos has become one of my favorite parts of blogging (well when it all goes as planned... and that's not always the case).  I have also grown in leaps and bounds as a cook and baker.  There is still SO much more I want to do... learn... and grow when it comes to cooking and blogging.  I am hoping for more years of success with this new found love in my life... Curry and Comfort has become like my third child. :)

Now onto the Bacon Deviled Eggs.  It's not a party without some yummy deviled eggs and I decided to make bacon the confetti on top of this egg.  These eggs were beyond delicious and my family was happy to sing Happy Birthday to my blog since they get to enjoy all the fruit of my labor.


12 large eggs boiled (see boiling instructions below)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs of Dijon Mustard
1 Tbs relish
3-4 Tbs chopped topped of green scallions
salt and pepper to taste
3-4 slices bacon fried until crispy and crumbled

Note: I highly recommend laying the finished deviled eggs on a layer of finely shredded lettuce.  It's not only a nice presentation, you and also eat the lettuce with the deviled eggs for a BLT (minus the T). 


Here are the best instructions I have seen for boiling eggs.  You will need a pan with a tight fitting lid.  Place eggs in a pan and fill with cold water.  Bring water and eggs to a rapid boil.  Then turn stove off and place a lid on top of the pan. Allow eggs to sit in the boiled water for 10 minutes. Drain away the hot water and replace with cold water and peel.

After you peel all your eggs, cut them in half and separate the white from the yolk
Then add the ingredients to the egg yolks and mash well.  Fill the egg whites with the yolk filling and sprinkle with bacon. Chill until you serve. Enjoy.
