Bacon and Olives Deviled Eggs – The most delicious mixture of egg yolks, olives and bacon with sour cream, chives, and a sprinkle of cajun seasoning. YUM!
You guys, it’s time! It’s time for all the Cadbury eggs, colorfully dyed eggs AND deviled eggs. Bring it ON!
But first, how are YOU? Happy Wednesday! This week, so far, has been a week of all-the-things happening; workin’, soccer gamin’, Real Housewives watchin’, kids entertainin’… the whole shebang, I tell you. But, at last I get to come here and have a bit of delicious fun with you. Life is good!
These past few days my cravings have been undeniable. Bacon, olives, and eggs. Go figure. BUT I couldn’t quiet the hunger… the struggle was real. I just had to move forward with it. I hope you don’t mind.
Deviled Eggs remind me of the ’80s. Is that fair to say? I can only associate them with my little self watching my Mom prepping deviled eggs for each.and.every dinner party they ever had.
Notice the glass plate up there? That’s my Mom’s. That’s also the plate she always uses for her deviled eggs. I purposely went over there and borrowed it from her just for these photos. Ain’t the plate purrrrdy? It’s also SO 1984…. if not ’74. 😉
I also remember my Mom throwing on the gobs of Mayo over the egg yolks like it was going out of style. It was 12 egg yolks + a tub of mayo. NO one ever complained.
But, here’s how this is going to go down my friends. WE are not using mayo. Lighter Sour Cream is going to be our smooth and creamy dairy-drug of choice. Crumbled, crispy bacon is going to make up for any flavor lost, and salty black olives will add the needed extra bite.
Warning: Don’t skip the cajun seasoning, please. Surprisingly, it brings everything together.
Now, let’s carry awwwwn. Let’s just boil them eggs and crisp up that bacon. Life is getting better by the minute!
