Eva's notes for this recipe:
This recipe is one my Mom taught me years ago. Not your standard Deviled Eggs but they are a huge hit with the family. You taste more than eggs with these.

The bacon in this recipe really makes these eggs stand out! We couldn't stop going back for more!

Directions

1
Boil eggs, cool and peel. Split eggs lengthwise and put egg yolks in a large separate bowl. Place egg whites on serving dish and set aside.

Fry bacon so it is extra crispy, drain off excess grease and set aside to cool.

Mash egg yolks with a fork in large bowl.

Mince onions so they are very small pieces.

Crush bacon.
2
Add onions and bacon to egg yolks and stir well. Add wet and dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix well. Taste to see if enough salt - easier to add some than to take away.
3
Two ways to stuff the egg whites: straight from the bowl with a spoon or you can transfer the egg mixture to a zip lock bag, cut off the tip and pipe it into the egg whites. Either way, once filled, place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill before serving.

Congratulations Eva......saw that you were from Bradley Illinois and I about flipped. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado now but I grew up in Herscher and my brother lives in Bradley and my daughter is an insurance agent in Bradley. I will have to try these since we are close to the same stomping ground.

Thank you all so much! My mom would be so proud that her recipe won a blue ribbon.
@Karen - talk about a small world! My daughter lives in Fort Carson, CO and of course we are in Bradley.
Hope you all enjoy the recipe! :)
