Bacon and Blue Deviled Eggs
I’m trashing up some deviled eggs for you today! I love a classic deviled egg, perfectly balanced with acid and mustard. Every bite is perfection…
But let’s be real, everything is better with bacon and cheese.
These bacon and blue deviled eggs are exactly that – an incredibly improved version of an already delicious bite. The acid and mustard are still there, but the bacon gives you this deep umami flavor and the tangy blue cheese will have you swooning.
Since I am sure many of you are prepping hardboiled eggs for the Easter egg hunts, you’ll need something to do with them all once their found (don’t forget to make a map, we all know what happened when a map wasn’t used in Stars Hollow… #gilmoregirlsforlife). Deviled eggs are the perfect solution and come together super quick, so you can get right to the best part of the day – eating.
Thank goodness no one I know LOVES deviled eggs. I get these babies all to myself… YUM.
May the Easter Bunny bring you many treats this weekend! 🙂
