Sriracha Deviled Eggs with Bacon

When was the last time you had a deviled egg?

Maybe, like me, it never crosses your mind to make them. I’ve had some that I really enjoyed, but there have been to many times that they’ve been an unwelcome guest at some outdoor summer gatherings. I can see them now in my mind’s eye, looking sun scorched and forlorn or soupy and slimy, among much more appetizing dishes.

But then came the happy hour menu at a local restaurant.

Listed on the menu with the typical appetizer selections were spicy deviled eggs. It struck me as odd,” hmmmmm…. I wonder what those would taste like?”…..so I ordered them. Wow. No longer will I think of deviled eggs as the black sheep of hors d’oeuvres. YUMMO!!

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 3 strips of bacon ~ crispy
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise or veganaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or sugar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped green onions  or broccoli sprouts for garnish

Directions:

  1. Peel eggs and cut in-half lengthwise.
  2.  Scoop all yolks into a bowl and mash with a fork. Add mayonnaise, mustard, and honey (or sugar). Stir to combine or use a mixer. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Use a spoon or piping bag to fill each half of an egg with mixture. Squirt a dab of sriracha sauce on top of each egg, break bacon up into smaller pieces and put on top of eggs, sprinkle with green onion or sprouts and serve.

This is a great option if you have a sweet tooth in the morning. The muffins are super moist due to the zucchini and sweetened with pure maple syrup. You can make a batch of these muffins ahead of time and freeze them until you need them. These are very low in calories ( around 100 cals per muffin) so you can have two! 🙂

Bake for 7-8 minutes or until the tops are set up. insert a knife and if it comes out clean they are done. Allow muffins to cool for 5-7 minutes or until they are cool enough to handle. Remove from muffin tin and place on a cooling rack.
