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.
