Stand UP Deviled Egg
A beautiful presentation of deviled egg
12 extra large Eggs
1 Cup crumbled cooked bacon
1 Cup very small diced cheddar
1 Cup very small diced sweet onion
1 Cup small diced kosher baby dill pickles
Best foods Mayo
salt to taste
Garish with paprika and chives or parsley
In a large pot, gently place 12 eggs. Fill pot until water covers eggs about 1 1/2 inches. Bring to a boil. Cover, turn heat off and let stand 10-12 minutes.
Peel under running cold water.
Cut eggs in half scoop out yolks into a bowl.
Mash with a fork and add other ingredients. Mix. Add enough Mayo to have a nice creamy mixture. Taste, adjust salt. Fill the eggs and chill.
Garnish with paprika and chives or Italian parsley right before serving.
*If you want to serve them whole and standing up, like in the photo above, cut the tops off at the narrow end and cut off a tiny sliver of the bottom so they have a platform to stand on. Either scoop out the yokes with a small spoon, or gently squeeze the side of the egg, and the yokes should pop out.
You could pipe the filing into the egg whites, using a piping bag or a zip lock bag ( cut a small opening into the corner).
