If you grew up anything like me…you had deviled eggs at every holiday, event or church potluck. They are a staple of southern society…and we ain’t changin’ it!
Those cute little yellow paprika-sprinkled eggs that cover every picnic table give a sense of stability that every get-together needs and we all know what to expect. They don’t offer much of a surprise, but whether you love them or just kinda like them, I bet you will be grabbing at least one of those bite-sized goodies…no forks or spoons required!
Well, don’t be scared my friends, but I am about to rock the deviled eggs boat a bit and throw these little cuties right at yo face.
Think traditional deviled eggs…but taken up like several notches with
CAPS always necessary when BACON is involved.
I am not saying to break all potluck dinner code and throw out your mayo/mustard egg combo, but PLEASE give these a try! I was skeptical my self until I whipped these up and ate
2 3 5 too many!
And you just thought I was meaning to photograph three.
You guys should know me better by now…
I still kept a little familiarity in these with the addition of mayo-because nothing…NOTHING…gives the same creaminess as mayo. But also threw in some Greek yogurt.
But I am not a fan and definitely could NOT taste it a bit.
I would not steer you wrong when bitter yogurt is involved, folks. That would just be mean to you and your potluck.
Do me a favor and give these a try, mkay? You will be happy and do a kitchen dance.
Do it for me.
And the bacon.
I love you bacon. When did this turn into a bacon love letter?!
Have a great weekend guys!! <3
