Bacon makes these off the charts irresistible!!!
These deviled eggs are one of my most requested low carb recipes and my go-to for foolproof, healthy recipes! People will want to know your deviled egg secrets! Let’s dive in…
My top reasons for LOVING these deviled eggs are:
- They’re rich, creamy perfection with a satisfyingly salty topping. It’s a flavor bomb that no one can resist!
- In under 40 minutes, you can hard boil these babies, whip up the filling and pop one of these sweet deviled eggs with bacon into your mouth! It can be even faster if you already have boiled eggs ready to go!
- Insanely eaaaaaaaaaasy to make!
- Switch up the flavors to your liking or to cater to special dietary or lifestyle needs for you and others! These are currently low carb and keto friendly!
Get that water boiling and read up on everything you need to know to make these deviled eggs with bacon!
A classic traditional deviled egg is usually made with mayo — If you choose to make my recipe with mayonnaise, just know that one tablespoon of mayo has a decent amount of calories (and fat).
To lighten things up a bit (if you’re interested)… sub the mayo calories for Greek yogurt (plain, nonfat), there are only 80 total calories and 6 carbs in an entire container! Not only are you getting a deeeelish treat that’s low in calories and carbs but you’re also getting a healthy dose of calcium, potassium and vitamin A!
(I can’t taste the difference!!)
If you can’t store them all in your belly (hah), you can store any leftovers in the fridge. They’ll be good in there for a couple of days but they’re best when made fresh.
Can You Freeze them?
I wouldn’t recommend freezing your hard boil eggs.
If you have leftover deviled eggs with bacon that you want to use up, you have options! Here are my favorite ways to use up the leftovers:
- Chop them up to make a deviled eggs with bacon sandwich. Add lettuce, extra dill and your fave quality bread or a croissant if you’re feeling fancy! If you’re not in the mood for bread (or carbs), simply spread a heaping dollop or two into lettuce cups! Ahh, so refreshing for summertime!
- Toss them in a potato salad or into your favorite pasta salad to jazz it up!
- Add them into a salad to make a spin-off Cobb salad or any salad for that matter. Pro tip: they would be extra delicious in a salad with low carb ranch dressing!
- Mix them into a breakfast casserole with potatoes, cheddar cheese, and milk to create a better, easy breakfast or brunch!
- Slice them onto avocado toast for some extra flavor! Add arugula and tomatoes!
Meal Prepping Tips
You can prep the eggs ahead of time by hard boiling them in advance.
Just don’t mix the filling and eggs too far in advance. Store them in separate, airtight Tupperware until you are ready to serve (and devour) these high protein low carb snacks.
