Impress your guests this holiday season with the most perfect deviled eggs with Black Forest bacon!
As the story goes, I have never liked deviled eggs for the good portion of my life. I’d cringe each time they were on the Easter or Thanksgiving dinner table, and I’d skip that platter altogether, leaving plenty of room for other good foods.
I could have lived the rest of my life deviled egg-free. But that story changed while eating brunch at La Grande Orange Café in Pasadena. It’s safe to say there’s a different ending to my story.
I am now a huge fan of deviled eggs! You guys — Is it weird that I might have a small obsession with these? Nah, it’s fine. I’m fine.
You know, they should really rename these to angel eggs because they taste so heavenly. They are literally to die for!
These perfect deviled eggs are so yummy and easy to make, that I’m positive they’ll turn any deviled egg hater into a deviled egg lover ♡.
Anyway, I made it a high priority to recreate these little angels at home and I’m so glad I did. Now I can eat this deliciousness whenever!
Since I now love deviled eggs, I try to find any reason to serve them as a side dish. They’re absolutely perfect to make for brunches and Easter.
Deviled eggs require a good hard-boiled egg. I get it — sometimes it can be difficult to get that perfect hard-boiled egg. Follow these directions and you’ll be on your way.
How to cook perfect hard-boiled eggs:
- Place desired amount of eggs in a saucepan, but do not overcrowd the pan.
- Cover the eggs with cold water.
- Bring the eggs to a boil.
- Turn off the heat and let sit for 10 minutes.
- Place the eggs in an ice bath for 1-2 minutes to cool.
- Carefully crack the eggs on a hard surface, rotating the egg so that the whole surface area is cracked.
- Run the egg under cold water while you peel the shell off the egg.
- Store the eggs in an airtight container in the fridge.
What do you like to put hard-boiled eggs on? While they’re not quite the same as a deviled egg, I do enjoy a hard-boiled egg in potato salad, cobb salad, and egg salad sandwiches.

- Using your piping bag, fill each egg with filling.

Hard Boiled Eggs On Stovetop:
Place eggs in a pot and cover completely with cold water. Place over medium high heat. Bring to a boil cook for 9 minutes.
Place the eggs in a large bowl off ice water and chill for at least 10 minutes. This makes the eggs easier to peel. Peel and use for deviled eggs.
Hard Boiled Eggs In Instant Pot:
Place 1 cup of COLD water in the Instant Pot for a 6 quart instant pot and 1.5 cups COLD water for an 8-quart Instant pot.
Add in an egg or steam rack and place your desired amount of eggs on the rack.
Seal the lid and make sure the valve is set to sealing. Cook on manual high pressure for 5 minutes.
Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes. Then place the eggs immediately in an ice water bath for 5 minutes. Peel and use for deviled eggs.
