Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs!

As we have discussed before, "Deviled Eggs" are a southern staple for holidays, parties, potlucks, cookouts....anytime people gather to eat!!!  Some people get hung up on the name with the 'devil' being in it.

The term ''Deviled' is just a food term for anything cooked with hot spices or spiced up some way.  We actually also called them 'dressed eggs' in our part of the country.

Whatever you call them, they are dang good and always a crowd pleaser and with all ages!

You know I like to change things up a bit sometimes and since I love anything with 'ranch seasoning' and 'bacon', why not put them in the deviled eggs!!!

 I played around with it and I must say it's delicious.   I actually liked these better than the original eggs and they are so easy!!!  

Here is what you will need:

10 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
12 eggs, hard boiled
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs. sour cream
1 Tbs. dry ranch dressing mix
1 tsp. mustard, yellow or Dijon
1 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
dash of salt and black pepper
dash of Tabasco sauce (optional)
paprika or Cajun seasoning for garnish

Place eggs in enough water to cover them.  Add a tsp. of vinegar and a dash of salt and they will peel much easier.  Also, if you can, don't use really fresh eggs that you just bought.  They are much harder to peel than eggs you have had in the fridge for a few days.  

Bring to a boil and boil for just a minute with cover on pan.  Turn heat off and let sit for about 12 to 15 minutes in the hot water.  Run under a couple changes of cold water and peel.  They will peel much easier.

With a sharp knife cut down the center lengthwise.  Remove the yolks and place in a bowl.  Mash with a fork.  Add half of the bacon  crumbles and all of the other ingredients and stir together until smooth.  

You can fill them with a spoon or put the filling in a piping bag and pipe it in for a very pretty presentation.  Sprinkle with just a little paprika or I like to sprinkle with just a bit of Cajun seasoning which gives them a little more spiciness. 

Finally top them off with the other half of the bacon crumbles!!!  

These are so yummy and they will disappear fast!!!  Enjoy!!!
