Chef notes

This dressed up deviled egg recipe from chef Ryan Scott — which calls for bacon and smoky paprika — will definitely be a hit for holidays like Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve, Easter, picnics and parties.


  • 16 hard-boiled eggs
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons caper juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 3-4 strips crispy bacon (turkey or regular)
  • paprika, for garnish


Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add eggs. Cook eggs at a boil for 6 minutes and turn down heat. Cover pot and let eggs sit for 6 minutes. Drain water and submerge eggs in ice and let stand for 6 minutes. Peel and slice each egg in half. Scoop out the egg yolks.

Combine reserved eggs yolks with all remaining ingredients, except egg whites, chives and bacon, in a food processor. Pulse until mixture becomes smooth. Pass egg mixture through a sieve to remove any lumps.

Place egg mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a small round or star tip and pipe into each halved egg white.
Garnish with crumble of turkey bacon, chopped chives, and a sprinkle of paprika.
