Bacon Deviled Eggs with White Truffle Oil

Ok, this is getting ridiculous, this whole blogging thing. 3 posts in 3 days? Did someone slip me a roofie? Quite possibly so.
Make these for the super bowl. Everyone will be sure to have a farting good time!
This is my jazzed up version of the plain ol deviled egg.
I was invited by the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council to do a live cooking demonstration at the Commodity Classic convention in March and had to come up with some egg and poultry recipes.
Anyway, the original version of these were much fancier. The had shrimp in them. Mmmmm. bacon and shrimp deviled eggs. UH-MAZING! I wrote the recipe and whipped up a batch. They were delicious.
My sister was going to a party the next day so I thought I would send them with her so her friends could be my guinea pigs. She called me the day after the party. She said, “I have bad news about the eggs,
not ONE person liked them.” WHHAAAAA??? I didn’t know how that could be possible. I literally licked the bowl clean and sucked it right from the piping bag(don’t judge), they were that divine.
What could have gone wrong? She said they were WAAYYYY to fishy. Ahhh-haaaa. I figured it out. After sitting for a day, the shrimp flavor overwhelmed the delicate egg flavor. Damn it. So if you want, you can still make these with shrimp(about 6 large shrimp, chopped) but they must be eaten within a few hours. So for the convention, I am playing it safe and cutting the shrimp out.

 
BACON DEVILED EGGS
Makes 24
12 large eggs
8 pieces of bacon cooked until crisp and crumbled
5 Tbsp Mayonnaise
3 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
1/2 Tsp White Truffle Oil (optional if you can not find it)
2 Tbsp Chives, finely chopped
Large pinch salt
Small pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Chives cut into 1/2 inch pieces for garnish
Place the eggs on the counter and bring to room temperature, about 45 minutes.
In a medium pot cover the eggs with cold water going about 1” above the eggs.
Over high heat, bring the eggs to a rolling boil.
Cover the eggs and remove from heat.
Allow them to sit covered for 13 minutes.
Remove the eggs and submerge in an ice bath for 10 minutes.
Peel the eggs and slice them in half lengthwise .
Place the egg yolks in a medium bowl and put the egg white halves on a flat surface or  preferably a deviled egg tray.
Mash the egg yolks and add the bacon,mayo,mustard, truffle oil, chives, salt and cayenne pepper. Mix until nicely incorporated.
Place the egg mixture in a large zip top baggie. Snip a hole in the bottom and pipe the mixture into the egg whites. Garnish with the chives and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper if you wish.

    What is it about a deviled egg that gets everyone excited?! I served some at my son's 3rd birthday party this year, along with so many other incredibly complex and tasty treats and the eggs were the first thing to go! (Yours sound great, by the way!)

    I'm glad you shared this story! Thanks for "Keep'n it real". I love deviled eggs, but I have kept to the traditional since I had a more adventurous recipe backfire on me too. These look delicious!

    I love deviled eggs and with bacon is even better honey, I would be more than happy to fart up a storm while watching the game with you and these eggs.

  12. 12

    Sheesh, you ARE a blog posting maniac. ;)
    Everything looks yum-me!

  13. 13

    The bacon alone would make these deviled eggs rock! Good advice about the shrimp-better with friends telling you than at the convention. Enjoy your time!

    Wow, 3 posts, three days? Totally impressive.

    Cheers.

    sometimes i sit and think, 'how can i make this better?' the answer is usually the same–add bacon. :)

    Well, bacon makes everything better, doesn't it? But I've never tried white truffle oil. Will have to find some and check it out!

    farting good time bahaha. Perfect! Just when I need – a room full of man farts. I'll be sure to make these and then exit the room, go to the kitchen, and make myself some of my own. I forgot how much I love deviled eggs. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Oh my gosh- I am in LOVE with these! I can actually taste them by just looking at the photo. Now I'm hungry…grrr…

    Hey Leslie! How's the weather in Tampa? I would love to be relaxing on a boat with a mojito in hand right about now!

    Great looking deviled eggs! Love the addition of bacon and white truffle oil. Takes you typical deviled egg to the next level.

  24. 24

    You can't go wrong with bacon and eggs!! and I think the shrimp version sounds great, but I can see how the flavor would intensify after sitting for a day.

  25. 25

    At least you found out BEFORE something like that happened at the convention, right?

    That's the downside about my love of grilling. So many things I cook have to be served just at the immediate time after resting.

    Hope you guys are having a rocking weekend.

    That's terrible! Those awful little eggs, letting you down. But, bacon with deviled eggs? You certainly would have livened up my family reunion, can you guess that side is Irish? It was 15 kinds of potato salad and devilled eggs and not one in the lot had bacon.

    Best of luck at the convention unless it's already happened (I didn't check the date).. then, enjoy a celebratory glass of wine!

    Eggs and bacon in deviled form – love it!

  29. 29

    I love deviled eggs with bacon! These look fabulous!

  30. 30

    This is just another reason I should splurge and buy some truffle oil! They look awesome.

  31. 31

    Oooo. I like the bacon in those! I know deviled eggs are still the fastest disappearing appetizer on the table. It is a perennial favorite.
    One of our newest restaurants in Miami (Michael's Genuine) which is VERY cutting edge, offers them as an appetizer. And while good, they aren't as good as yours!

  32. 32

    They look nice :) I like stuffed eggs, but I didnt have them for so long :)

  33. 33

    These look so delicious! I would probably eat way more than I should.
