Bacon Praline deviled eggs with BBQ rub

It only takes one ingredient to take deviled eggs to the next level, but put praline bacon on top and you have a winning appetizer recipe.


Texas is a bit of an enigma. Yeah, technically it was a part of the Confederate states, but it’s not really the South. It’s more like a Republic, a beacon of indepenent state pride holding it’s own as the largest contiguous state. However, when it’s convenient, Texans are happy to welcome some Southern traditions into the fold – like deviled eggs.

Making classic deviled eggs isn’t difficult, but making them best-damn-deviled-eggs-ever is even easier, because all you have to do is add one magical ingredient into the mix… barbecue rub! I mean, rubs are already packed so full of flavor and spice combinations, a little sprinkle is all you need to give those eggs a mega-boost.

I like to use Hardcore Carnivore Red, because it has a pop of natural color that works beautifully, but the bold pepper flavor also lends itself to my add-this-on-to-really-blow-your-eggy-mind topper – praline bacon. A couple chips of this incredible bacon sitting atop a prettily-piped yolk just made this your new favorite brunch dish. Yup, the mic done just got dropped, y’all.

  • Author: Jess Pryles



12 hard boiled eggs

2 tbsp mayonaisse

2 tbsp relish

1 tbsp mustard

12 tbsp Hardcore Carnivore Red or Amplify rub

praline bacon


  1. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and remove the yolks into a separate bowl.
  2. Mash the yolks with a fork, and if you want to pipe them at the end make sure you break them up quite finely.
  3. Stir in mayo, relish, mustard and BBQ rub.
  4. Spoon or pipe mix into empty halves and top with a chip of praline bacon.
  5. Pro tip: you can keep the eggs from sliding around on the plate by putting a little dab of filling underneath each one.
