Deviled eggs are another great food divisor, either you love them or you hate them, there’s not really an in-between. I suspect it has to do with the texture, as the creamy filling inside of a rather toothsome egg white will either woo you or send your lip curling upwards in distaste.

I am in the lovers camp, firmly entrenched since childhood with no plans on leaving. Deviled eggs are my favorite cold appetizer and one that you don’t see that often anymore. They have become rather passé, sadly, and ignored for other more trendy appetizers.

So what can one do except pull out your 1970’s retro carnival glass deviled egg plate and serve up those babies in style?Smoky Bacon Deviled Eggs in a retro carnival glass deviled egg plate

I love my egg plate. I love these eggs.

Yes, sadly I embrace being passé. Give me retrolicious recipes any day of the week and I’ll most likely have the glassware to serve it in.

To make really pretty deviled eggs, first you need to learn How to Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs. Then I highly suggest using an icing bag with a large tip or a heavy-duty one like I have. Mine is absolutely amazing for these fiddly little jobs, like filling eggs or piping whipped cream into pies. I bought it initially to make beautiful edgings on my pies for my cookbook photos then it slowly became something I use all the time!

When you are doing a couple dozen eggs, trust me, it’s worth using it!

These eggs by themselves are a very classic deviled egg recipe which is my favorite above all. What I have discovered is that you really need to slowly add the mayo/vinegar/mustard until you reach a certain taste that you are expecting, then stop right there. My mom never measures, she simply measures by taste a I did with this recipe. What your Mom or Grandma made might have used more or less of certain ingredients, but the three in here are the classic, retro ingredients. I prefer Dijon mustard in mine, but feel free to use plain yellow if desired.

The smoked paprika gives these eggs a flavor boost that I absolutely adore. Let’s face it, paprika by itself has never been known as a kapow spice for taste, it’s used more for coloring in dishes like these. Smoked paprika on the other hand, is one of my favorite spices to add a little flavor punch when needed.

That combined with bacon? Yes please, I’ll eat a dozen of these and call it dinner.

Happy cooking everyone!
