This easy deviled eggs with bacon recipe is one of my favorite appetizers for any occasion. Potlucks, picnics, parties, holidays… you name it, these are perfect for it! (And they are always a crowd pleaser — who doesn’t like eggs and bacon?) If you like egg salad, you’ll love bacon deviled eggs!
Beyond party appetizers, this dish is also one of my favorite lunch staples. I like to pair these eggs with an easy chicken caesar salad, creamy broccoli salad, or cucumber subs for a complete meal.

Ingredients & Substitutions
This section explains how to choose the best ingredients for the best deviled egg recipe with bacon, what each one does in the recipe, and substitution options. For measurements, see the recipe card below.
- Eggs – Use my guide for easy peel boiled eggs for a frustration-free experience every time. You could also make air fryer hard boiled eggs or hard boiled eggs in the oven if you like.
- Mayonnaise – The base of the yolk filling. You can make homemade avocado mayo or buy it.
- Dijon Mustard – Adds a little spice. Feel free to use regular yellow mustard instead of the Dijon if you like, or even a flavored mustard.
- Apple Cider Vinegar – Apple cider vinegar helps to break down the egg yolk and gives the bacon deviled eggs a little tang. You can also use distilled vinegar, or pickle relish if you like that flavor.
- Garlic Powder – For flavor.
- Sea Salt
- Cooked Bacon – I cook bacon in the oven, but you could also make bacon in the air fryer or cook bacon in the microwave. For a time-saving shortcut, get precooked bacon bits. This recipe uses 4 slices bacon, which would be equivalent to about 1/4 cup bacon bits.
- Smoked Paprika – Adds smoky flavor and a bit of color. You could use regular paprika as well.
- Fresh Chives – For the garnish and they also add some delicate onion flavor. Thinly sliced green onions would also taste delicious.
How To Make Deviled Eggs With Bacon
This section shows how to make this deviled eggs bacon recipe with step-by-step photos and details about the technique, to help you visualize it. For full instructions, including amounts and temperatures, see the recipe card below.
- Boil eggs. Boil eggs according to the instructions here. Let cool in ice water, then peel.
- Mash yolks. Slice eggs in half the long way with a paring knife. Remove yolks and place into a large bowl. Mash.
- Mix filling. Add mayo, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, and sea salt to egg yolks. Stir until smooth.
- Assemble. Pipe egg yolk mixture back into egg white halves with a piping bag (or zip lock bag with the corner snipped off). You can also use a spoon in a pinch, but piping looks much better.
- Add toppings. For the best deviled eggs with bacon, add a sprinkle of smoked paprika and fresh chives on top.
Spice up your bacon deviled eggs with a twist! Try these variations for a delicious and unique flavor:
- Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs – Seed and dice two jalapenos (use gloves!). Add bacon and jalapenos to the yolk mixture and pipe into eggs. You can also use sliced jalapenos for garnish on top if you prefer.
- Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs – Add 2 tablespoons finely shredded cheddar cheese to the yolk mixture. Mix well.
- Add Spices – If you like a kick, add a sprinkle of black pepper or cayenne pepper, or a drizzle of sriracha to the filling mixture.
- Add Other Toppings – Try chopped olives, roasted red peppers, capers, diced radishes, lox, diced ham, or sliced prosciutto.
You can store deviled eggs with bacon in the fridge for 3-4 days, but they are best eaten the same day.
If you’re looking to save time, you can boil the eggs and make the filling up to a few days in advance. However, don’t fill the eggs until right before serving.

Something that the whole family loves. Just never give it a thought. I like your ingredients and love the fact that it is almost free food. thanks.
These deviled eggs were delicious. I tried the recipe yesterday for Easter and it will definitely be on the easter menu. Thanks for this recipe.
Literally everything is better with bacon… I love deviled eggs to begin with but now they are at a whole new level. Everyone loved them. Will be making again.
We loved the flavor of these deviled eggs with bacon.
Bacon makes everything taste better! Loved the salty bite paired with the creamy deviled egg, great recipe!
Why have I never thought to add bacon to deviled eggs!?? OMG! Game changer! Definitely taking these to Easter Dinner with the family.
Love it! Love the Apple Cider Vinegar! Will make this again and again!
Deviled eggs are a “staple” in the South. This recipe is EASY, COMES TOGETHER QUICKLY and IS DELICIOUS! I TOTALLY enjoyed it and will be making more for my family.
Wonderful recipe! I’ve been making these for 20-30 years, and we also add some finely shredded sharp cheese to the yolks. So delicious! Try it out!
I did a test drive of 4 servings tonight to see if they were worth taking to the Labor Day celebrations.
They were absolutely delicious and I am definitely taking them to the celebrations.
Definitely the best deviled eggs I have ever made. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
So very good. I used the spicy avocado mayo. for the mix. Just not as much (my family has not gotten used to the extreme spiciness of it), tasting as I made it. Use mayo next time 50/50.
Way way WAY to vinegarry!! Omit the vinegar all together or taste before adding!

Hi Michelle, Sorry these didn’t suit your tastes. Feel free to scale back on the amount of apple cider vinegar next time.
Absolutely agree, the vinegar was very overpowering, I would omit it altogether next time. Without that, I feel it would be a solid recipe. Thanks anyway Maya – my first time making deviled eggs!
I am so happy to see this recipe. We have deviled eggs every time our family gets together. These will be on my serving plate right beside the big Turkey. Love your recipes because I have to watch my food intake.
Good morning, Maya: I wish to apologize for my earlier note where it was mentioned that there was difficulty printing out this recipe. The computer was left on when I had to leave the room for awhile. When I returned to it, I decided to restart it. Guess what? When your site returned to the screen, it looked a little bit better, and when the “box” where it says”print” was taped, it printed out the recipe! What a nice surprise! Evidently, rebooting was the solution here. Thanks for posting this recipe. It’s sure to be a winner! Sandra W.
This looks great. Gonna make some today. Never used Cider vinegar before. However, I think the fat should be 12.5g , 1/4 cup is 12 tbsp = 1tbsp per egg half, since the recipe uses 6 eggs. Which is a bonus for Keto 😀 (13.5 with Hellman’s real mayo vs avocado oil mayo….)
Thank you for the recipe!
A 1/4 c is NOT 12TBSP

Hi Joanna, I think it’s just a typo. There are 12 teaspoons in 1/4 cup.
I’m so glad that I came across this recipe today! The eggs turned out great!
Are the fat, protein and carbs numbers for half an egg or one whole egg (2 halfs)?

Hi Sharita, The nutrition is for one half egg, or one deviled egg.
Yummy recipe! I forgot to sprinkle the bacon to top and my family still loved them. They said these deviled eggs were the best I have made yet. The recipe was delicious, definitely a keeper.
These are a great recipe! Can’t wait to make these for Easter
These eggs are delish! We will be making them all spring long!
Just made this! Thanks for the recipe..we all loved it
Deviled eggs are always a party favorite and the first to go. Thank you!!
I will definitely be making these deviled eggs with our leftover Easter eggs!
I’ve never tried deviled eggs before now I can see how easy they are I will try as soon as I can.
I love this idea but still thinking about what food to use with these eggs because normally I just eat minimum 1 egg, maybe some sandwiches or salad…
