Deviled eggs. They are like little cups of goodness surrounded by deliciousness. Am I right? Do we have deviled egg eaters out there? Or is that just dating me? Every family function we have includes deviled eggs. They're a staple - kind of like milk and oxygen.
My son loves deviled eggs. Which makes me very happy. I love it when he says "Mom, can I have some eggs with my dinner?" Seriously! Do kids do that??? My daughter always asks if she can have ice cream with dinner. Huh. But I don't like it so much when he asks me 5 minutes before dinner is served and I don't have any hard boiled eggs in the fridge. Normally I do, but there are times when I fail. Then I discovered these.
Egglands Best Hard Cooked Peeled Eggs. They are already hard boiled and peeled and so darn easy. My kids saw the bag and immediately tore into it and started eating the eggs. (Proud Mom moment.) Now when my son says "can I have eggs for dinner" at the last minute, I can say "of course".
I wanted to spruce up our deviled eggs this time so I made them a little differently. I mean, how could I resist? They had bacon in them for heaven's sake!
