I love eggs. And bacon. And ranch dressing. But mostly eggs. I can eat them pretty much every day and never get tired of them. There are so many ways to eat them and you can change the flavor with just a few ingredients.
When I was little, every Easter my sister and I would color eggs. It just didn’t seem like Easter if we didn’t have colored hard boiled eggs in our baskets. We continued that tradition with the kids but now that they’re 14, I do it mainly so I can have hard boiled eggs to eat.
These deviled eggs are a favorite of mine because the flavor is unique. You get that unexpected bite of bacon in each bite and who doesn’t love bacon and eggs! They are perfect for Easter or a Monday.
Oh, and this method for getting pretty hard boiled eggs is now my go-to method. (click link to see video or watch below.)
Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs for Two
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp ranch dressing mix
1/4 tsp vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp green onions, chopped (Optional)
3 pieces bacon, cooked crisp and divided
Add enough water to a pot to cover eggs. BUT, do not put eggs in pot just yet. Bring water to a boil. Gently add eggs to boiling water. Cover pot and turn off heat. Let eggs sit for 12 minutes.
Remove water and place eggs under cold running water for a couple of minutes. Remove most of water only leaving about an inch in the pan with the eggs.
Cover the pot, and holding down the lid shake pot vigorously to crack eggs. Slosh water around to get water into eggs. Peel eggs. Voila.
Cut eggs in half and remove yolk into a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, mustard, dressing mix, and vinegar to eggs. Mash together to mix well. Add a tiny dash of salt and black pepper. If using green onions, add now. Add in about 2 pieces of bacon, chopped finely. Mix together.
Place egg mixture in a Ziploc bag and seal. Cut a hole out of the corner of the bag and fill the egg whites. Garnish with remaining bacon pieces.
