Hard boiled eggs – Use fresh eggs for this recipe, as older eggs tend to lose their flavor.
Bacon – I personally like smoky bacon, but you can use the bacon of your choice.
Mayonnaise – Swap with greek yogurt, cream cheese, or sour cream as necessary.
Sriracha – I love Sriracha for hot sauce, but if the grocery stores are out, use any that you like.
Chopped chives – You can also use fresh dill or green onion if needed.
How To Make Deviled Eggs With Bacon
FIRST: Begin by slice eggs in halves lengthwise. Remove egg yolks and place in a small bowl. Using a fork, smash into small pieces.
SECOND: Mix in mayonnaise and sriracha to yolks. Use a fork to combine until smooth. Add chopped chives to egg yolk mixture.
THIRD: Fill the small hole in each of the egg white halves with egg yolk filling using a small spoon or piping bag.
FOURTH: Garnish with cooked bacon bits and more chives. Place eggs on a serving dish and enjoy!

What should I serve with them?
There are a ton of options for side sauces when it comes to deviled eggs, so feel free to experiment!
Some of my personal favorites are extra hot sauce, dijon mustard, or yellow mustard, but you can serve with anything that you like.
Can I make them in advance?
Hard boil and make the filling up to 3 days in advance. Keep the filling, egg halves, and crispy bacon separate until ready to serve for best results.
To save your deviled eggs for another day, simply place your egg whites in an airtight container or plastic bag and stick in the fridge. If you have them on a serving tray, you can cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Pro Tip – try serving your crumbled bacon bits on the side of the dish rather than topping them yourself, so that the bacon can be stored separately from the leftover eggs.
This will ensure that the salty bacon can be reheated again and doesn’t lose any of its crispiness when serving a second time.
How Do I Make The Best Hard-Boiled Eggs?
Making hard-boiled eggs is an art, and I’ve been working on perfecting it for years. To start, fill a large saucepan with cold water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil on the stovetop over medium-high heat, before placing your eggs into the hot water.
I recommend doing this with a slotted spoon or using a steamer basket. Cook your eggs for a total time of around 10 minutes.
While your eggs are cooking, create an ice bath in a medium-size bowl using cold water and ice cubes.
Once you reach the end of your cooking time, use the slotted spoon to scoop out the eggs and place them into the medium bowl filled with ice water.
Leave them in for about 5 minutes before you remove and pat egg shells dry with paper towels before peeling.
If you want, you can also use an instant pot for this step. Just fill the instant pot with water and cook, before you drain water and peel your eggs.

Tapas Tips & Tricks
- Get the best tips for making easy to peel hard-cooked eggs.
- If you want to pack in the flavor, you can also try adding different spices to your egg yolk mixture. Some of my favorites are garlic powder, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, or just black pepper with a pinch of salt.
- To get the smoothest consistency possible for your filling, put all of the ingredients into a food processor and mix.
- For your bacon crumbles, I’ve found that using a frying pan to get a crispy exterior on your bacon works best.
- Using a piping bag for your filling? Try leaving your mayonnaise out for around 15 minutes before creating your mixture, so that it comes closer to room temperature. This will make it easier to not only fill the bag itself but also to pipe it into your egg whites.
