What You Need To Make Keto Deviled Eggs With Bacon
- A pot for boiling the eggs
- Bacon – use a good quality bacon
- Sour cream
- Dijon mustard
What? No Mayonnaise?
That’s right. If you’ve been reading any of my posts and recipes you’ll see that while I’m not exactly a mayo hater, I think it can be easily swapped out for much more flavorful ingredients.
In this case, sour cream. The sour cream is creamy and delicious and it adds just the right amount of tang to each deviled egg so you can skip the vinegar.
How To Perfectly Boil Eggs Every Time
When I had my restaurant, we served egg salad sandwiches and they were EXTREMELY popular. Every two days we’d boil and peel dozens of eggs for various egg recipes, and I’ve perfected the process so that you too can have amazing boiled eggs every time.
- Add the cold, raw eggs to a pot with water that comes up over the top of the eggs. Put the pot on to boil and boil it without the lid for 5-6 minutes. No more!
- Turn the heat off and pop a lid on the pot immediately. Leave it on the warm burner for 10-11 minutes.
- Drain the eggs and chill them in cold water. Then peel them and voila – perfectly boiled eggs!
What is The Perfect Boiled Egg?
A perfect hard-boiled egg should have a firm yolk, and when you cut into it, there should be no gray ring around the egg yolk. That gray ring means the egg has been cooked too long.
Sure, you can still eat them if you have a gray ring around the egg, but hard boiled egg purists like myself pride ourselves on creating a beautiful boiled egg.
Are Hard Boiled Eggs Keto?
You bet they are! Avoid recipes with sugars in them (yes, they do exist) and with all keto-friendly ingredients, these protein-rich keto snacks are a tasty addition to your day.
How To Make This Keto Deviled Eggs Recipe
- Prepare the eggs – scroll up a bit for my fail-proof method for creating perfect hard boiled eggs.
- Fry the bacon and crumble it.
- Scoop out the filling and mix it with the dill, sour cream, Dijon, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
- Garnish your low carb deveiled eggs with crumbled bacon and a sprinkle of paprika.
Snacking, Sharing, or A Tasty Lunch!
These delish bacon deviled eggs are the perfect keto snack recipe. I’ll make up a dozen or so of them and keep them in the fridge just for a quick protein-packed snack. They’ll keep in the fridge, covered, for a few days.
This is also a great low carb appetizer recipe – start a meal with a few of these and you’re all set!
Or, add them to a charcuterie board.
Another fun idea is to build a keto snack board. Perfect for parties, gatherings, or just because, you can pair these keto devilled eggs with stuffed mushrooms, a creamy seafood dip, and zucchini pizza bites.
You can boil the eggs 3-4 days in advance, prepare the filling up to 2 days in advance, and fill them hours before you want to serve them. In my chef career, we made a gazillion deviled eggs and they almost always start to discolor around the edges of the filling if you fill them too soon. My professional advice: get everything ready up to 2 days in advance, including the yolk mixture, and fill them as soon as you can before eating. They’ll be the prettiest that way.
I’m convinced that the freshest eggs peel the most easy. I must have peeled a thousand dozen eggs over my professional career, and older eggs are more difficult to separate from the membrane inside the shell. Get eggs as fresh as you can and see if I’m right!
It of course depends on the recipe and what you put into them, but these keto Deviled Eggs with Bacon have 0 net carbs per two halves – the perfect keto snack!
