Zesty Bacon Jalapeño Deviled Eggs – tired of the same boring deviled eggs? This spicy twist will rekindle your love of this classic southern appetizer. Serve these modern deviled eggs at any gathering and wow your party guests!
Growing up, there wasn’t a potluck, party or tailgate that didn’t have classic, deviled eggs. You know the drill – pickle relish, mayo and mustard. Nothing too fancy. But as popular as they are, they seem to be a “love it” or “hate it” appetizer. These bad boys are outdated, tired and in need of a makeover. Enter… the Zesty Bacon Jalapeño Deviled Egg.
I first made these deviled eggs about a year ago for a football party we hosted at our house. It was an early game because the team was playing in London so I served brunch inspired finger foods. The eggs were a last minute addition to the menu; I always have eggs, bacon and mayo on hand. I’ve seen other people get creative with deviled eggs so I thought, why not? Well, they were a huge hit with our guests! I think one of my friends had about ten! Because of the overwhelming response (and because I love them), I’ve been making them ever since. I mean, who doesn’t love jalapeños and bacon?

Two things that are essential to the perfect Bacon Jalapeño Deviled Egg: crispy bacon and Duke’s Mayonnaise. Bacon gives each bite the perfect salty crunch! And, well, Dukes Mayo is so creamy, dreamy, and offers the perfect “zing”. I will never buy another brand of mayonnaise again and once you try it, I am sure you will agree. If you don’t… you crazy.
