Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are the perfect appetizer for any BBQ, Game Day, or party!

Here's what you'll need:

Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard boiled eggs can be quite frustrating to work with, but this method always gives me an egg with a perfectly yellow yolk and an easy to peel shell.

Start by bringing a pot of water to a boil. Once the water reaches a boil, carefully lower the eggs into the pot. Once all the eggs are in, set a timer for 13 minutes. Once the eggs have boiled for 13 minutes, remove them from the pot and place them directly into a bowl filled with ice and water. The ice bath will stop the eggs from cooking and cool them down, making them easy to peel.

I like to peel the eggs by tapping the egg against the counter or by gently pressing between my fingers until the shell is cracked on all sides. Then, just peel the shell away. However, with this method, the eggs can be so easy to peel, all it takes is a crack around the center and the shell comes off in two pieces. I like to keep the bowl of ice water nearby to rinse any excess pieces of shell.

The Process

Start by dicing 4 slices of thin bacon and cook them in a pan until browned and crisp. I usually do this while the eggs are boiling. Also, finely dice 1 tablespoon of pickled jalapeño slices. Jalapeños are optional in this recipe if you do not like a little spice, but even as someone who cannot handle a lot of spice, I found this ratio to be the perfect amount without being too much.

After the eggs have been boiled and peeled, cut them in half. Remove the yolks from the eggs and place them in a bowl.

Mash the yolks with a fork. Mix in 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of mustard. Then, stir in 2 tablespoons of dill relish, 1 tablespoon of diced pickled jalapeños, the diced bacon, 1/4 teaspoon Southern Hospitality BBQ Seasoning, and a pinch of salt. Deviled eggs are not a perfect science. You can always adjust the ingredients depending on what you like!

Fill the eggs using a spoon or piping bag. Sprinkle the tops with a little Southern Hospitality and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat. These deviled eggs are creamy, tangy, salty, spicy, and balanced perfectly by the sweet, smoky flavor of our Southern Hospitality BBQ Seasoning!
