Bacon Topped Deviled Eggs with 2 Secret Ingredients

bacon deviled eggs

This decadent recipe for deviled eggs will help you get your bacon fix, plus it makes a great party dish, or even a lunch. There are two secret ingredients in this recipe that I use to punch up the flavor…

… bacon drippings and using smoked paprika instead of just regular! Those two ingredients plus the green onions (if you like them) really makes the recipe. Don't overdo the bacon grease though… just a drizzle will do. You don't want the fat to congeal too much on top of the eggs when they're cooled.
