Recipe Ingredients

Below are the ingredients you will need to make this deviled eggs recipe with bacon. Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the page to see the exact amounts for each ingredient.

  • Eggs: Hard boil the eggs then chill them before starting this recipe – you will want cooled eggs for the easiest prep! 
  • Mayonnaise: Makes the egg yolk filling rich and creamy. Use regular mayo for the best flavor or you can use a light or reduced-fat version if desired. 
  • Mustard: I recommend using Dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard as it gives the eggs the most flavor.  
  • Relish: Dill relish gives the eggs a delicious tangy, savory flavor. If you prefer a slightly sweet finish, substitute a sweet relish. 
  • Bacon: Cook the bacon extra crispy so it has a crunchy texture for the top of the eggs.
  • Chives: Finely dice the chives so you can fit more on each egg, which is best for the presentation and flavor. 

How to Make Deviled Eggs with Bacon

Below are photos and recipe steps so you can easily make this recipe at home. You will also need a knife, a cutting board, a ziplock bag for piping or a mini cookie scoop, a medium mixing bowl, and a mixing spoon. 

Prepare the egg yolk

Slice the boiled eggs in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out the yolks placing them into a medium mixing bowl. Set the egg whites aside on a serving platter. Mash the yolks into small crumbs with a fork. 

Fill the eggs

Add the mayonnaise, mustard, relish, and salt to the yolks and stir until uniform and smooth. Then fill the egg whites with the egg yolk mixture. 


Sprinkle the eggs with the bacon crumbles and fresh chives. Then you’re ready to serve cold!

Storage and Reheating Instructions

This deviled eggs with bacon recipe is best served fresh, but you can also store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Enjoy them chilled! I don’t recommend freezing this deviled eggs with bacon recipe, as the texture will change when defrosted. 

Tips and Tricks 

  • Taste-test the deviled egg filling to adjust the flavors to your liking before piping it into the egg halves. You may want a little more relish, mustard, or salt to make it just right! 
  • Pipe the filling into the egg halves by placing the yolk mixture in a large zip-lock bag and cutting the end of one corner. This makes the most even presentation. If you can’t pipe it in, use a mini cookie scoop! 
  • Don’t overcook the eggs. Doing so will turn the yolk a green color, changing the signature yellow hue of the deviled eggs.
