I really love deviled eggs, and what is better than the addition of Jalapeno and Bacon to make Jalapeno Bacon Deviled Eggs? I’ve been on a hiatus of making them though for the past 5 years or so because my husband is so weird about eggs. However, we had a party over Christmas and I knew these would be a hit. I got the idea from a friend who brought these to a party a while ago so I can’t take total credit for them.
if you love bacon (who doesn’t) and a little heat, then these are the deviled eggs for you! I finished them with a little smoked paprika to add a little smokiness and color to the plate- these are as yummy as they are pretty on the plate. Another bonus is they are no carb and #Paleo and #Keto diet friendly! Surprisingly enough, my husband who supposedly “hates eggs” LOVED these deviled eggs! I’ll take this as a victory!
This recipe originally appeared on the blog and then made it in my cookbook, Healthy Electric Smoker, (you can purchase a signed copy of my cookbook here) as Smoked Deviled Eggs. If you love these Jalapeno Bacon Deviled Eggs, then take it a step further and smoke the eggs first. I promise you it will blow your mind!
And, if you want to take this recipe a step further, then consider first smoking your deviled eggs! Here is the complete guide (and it’s super easy!) to making a smoked Deviled Egg even if you don’t own a smoker!

The addition of jalapenos and bacon will forever change the way you think of deviled eggs. This is guaranteed to be an epic addition at any gathering or tailgate.
- 12 large eggs
- 1/4 cup mayo (I use mayo with no seed oils such as Kensingtons or Better Body Foods)
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp dill relish
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- smoked paprika- just a pinch for sprinkling over the eggs at the finish line
To make these jalapeno bacon deviled eggs, you will need in addition:
- 3 slices nitrate free bacon
- 2 jalapenos, deseeded and thinly sliced
To Make Buffalo Deviled Eggs, you will need:
Buffalo Sauce (my go to version is my Florida Orange Buffalo sauce (ingredients below). Simply melt the butter on the stove and combine with the other two ingredients.
- 1 stick butter
- 1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
- 3 tbsp of my Sunshine State of Mind Rub
- 8 oz of high quality blue cheese, crumbled.
- Chopped green onion, for garnish
After making the deviled eggs, drizzle with buffalo sauce and add blue cheese. Chopped green onions make for a nice garnish to contrast the orange. You can also add in a few tsp of the buffalo sauce to the deviled egg yolk mixture. SO YUM!
Bring your eggs to a low boil and then turn the burner off and let sit for another 10 minutes. Rinse in cold water, then crack and peel under the faucet as the water is running over them (this helps get the shell off).
Next, slice the eggs in half and remove the yolk. Mix the yolk, mayo, relish, mustard, salt and pepper together with a fork until uniform in consistency. Put the mixture in a big ziplock bag and then cut the corner off to create a “pastry bag” so you can pipe the mixture into the yolks easily. Next, add a small piece of bacon to each egg, and then a slice of jalapeno.
These are a great appetizer to bring to a party, I will be making these for Superbowl this year!
