Recipe: Bacon Jalapeño Deviled Eggs

DSC_4814

When I have guests over for an outdoor picnic or another wonderful family gathering, I love to make these bacon jalapeños deviled eggs – to add a spicy kick!  As Memorial Day is coming up, these will be sure to be a crowd favorite! Watch out though - they’ll be gone before you know it and you’ll be making more. They’re so simple to make, since they’re basically just regular deviled eggs with chopped jalapeños and bacon mixed in, it won’t be too much of a problem when you have to make another batch!
