Changing Up Traditional Deviled Egg Flavors.
I don’t think I have ever been to a church potluck or a BBQ where I didn’t see a platter of deviled eggs. Maybe it is a southern thing, maybe it isn’t but these stuffed eggs are among the “must have” sides at such food events.
The traditional deviled eggs that I grew up seeing and eating were just your basic mayo and mustard combo mixed with the egg yolks and either sweet or dill pickle relish.
I honestly have never been a huge fan of the deviled eggs due to my dislike of mustard. But when my family ask to bring deviled eggs to a birthday party last summer, I knew I wanted to switch up the flavors with some of my favorite ingredients like sour cream, cheese and bacon.
I was nervous at first about changing up the eggs because my family loves them and I didn’t want to spoil one of their favorites by getting to crazy with the recipe. I ask myself how can anything be bad with bacon and cheese, and then set to work.
All that worrying for nothing as these eggs were a huge hit and now they are one of my most requested dishes at family gatherings.
What is The Easiest Way to Cook and Peel Hard Boiled Eggs?
Over the years, I hated boiling eggs simply because it was so hard to peel the darn things. I found myself wishing there was an easier way to peel the eggs without my patience being tested! Or the eggs looking like someone had ran over them when I was done!
Of course I know there are all types of tricks floating around the internet claiming to make the eggs peel perfectly but I think it is just luck because none of them ever worked for me until I got my Instant Pot.
Let me tell you, that thing is a game changer when it comes to many things including hard boiled eggs. I have been using it to do all my eggs since I got mine and I honestly wish I had gotten one sooner because the easy peel eggs is worth the purchase to me alone!
It is so nice when you are able to peel an entire batch without ending up with ugly eggs. Mine would always seem to give me trouble when I want them pretty for company or potlucks but not anything thankfully.
Thankfully I make about 20 eggs at once in my Instant Pot with not trouble at all so it is easy to make a big batch of these Bacon Cheedar Deviled Eggs without any stress these days.
Which is fantastic, so I highly recommend getting an Instant Pot if you haven’t already. You’ll never have to worry about hard to peel eggs anymore.
