Bacon Deviled Eggs

Some of my favorite memories of summer involved backyard barbecues, pool parties and time with family. All of which, of course, included delicious food. “Everyone bring a dish to the party!” is something I have said many a time.

A summer party just isn’t a party without deviled eggs on the menu and today we are spicing up the typical deviled egg with a bit of bacon. As they say, “Everything tastes better with bacon.” It’s true.

  • 12 eggs
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
