This deviled egg recipe gets leveled up with the addition of bacon!
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Lower the cold eggs into the water carefully with a spoon. Cover the pot and set a timer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out the water, and run cold water over the eggs until the water remains cool. Let sit for 10 minutes. Peel the eggs, making sure to rinse off any bits of shell.
Slice the eggs in half. Scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Mash the yolks lightly with a potato masher or fork.
Add the mayonnaise, mustard, black pepper, and paprika. Mash until smooth. Stir in the bacon. Taste and add salt as needed.
Fill the egg whites with the yolk mixture. Serve immediately.
