Ingredients

Instructions

First, start by slicing your hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise. After that, remove the egg yolk with a spoon, a teaspoon works well for this. Then, set the yolks aside, but do not discard them.

Next, break the egg yolks up into crumbles using a fork in a medium-sized bowl. The texture should be like loose coffee grounds. The egg yolks are naturally fluffy so they mix with the other ingredients very easily!

In a medium bowl, add Mayonnaise, bacon, salt, and pepper to the egg yolks and mix until smooth.

Add the pimento cheese to your mixture. Give the mixture a taste and decide if you’d like to add any of the optional/additional seasonings or ingredients.

After that, transfer your filling mixture to a pipping bag or a ziplock bag with a hole cut in the corner and squeeze the mixture back into the egg whites. The filling should overflow the spot where the egg yolks used to be. Garnish the eggs with chives or green onion.

Can I eat these warm or cold?

Serving them warm will melt the pimento cheese. For freshness, keep deviled chilled.

Notes

Storage Instructions:
You should store your bacon pimento deviled eggs in your refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days. I do not recommend freezing these deviled eggs assembled. You can freeze the deviled egg filling in an airtight container that is also freezer safe for up to 3 months, however, the egg whites do not freeze or thaw well.
