Why Keto Deviled Eggs?
Eggs are a great source of protein, maybe even the perfect source of protein. We can easily boost the fat in deviled eggs with good ingredient choices. In this recipe, we achieve that goal with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo and Bacon. Good protein & good fat = A Keto Win.
Add to that the fact that eggs are very affordable.
Really, eggs should be a staple in any budget-sensitive keto diet. Keto Deviled Eggs are great, but you can also eat them as a keto budget-friendly staple in a dish like Keto No Potato Salad.
Keto Bacon Deviled Eggs Recipe
- Place eggs in a large pot with enough room for them to move around. Add cold water to cover the eggs by about an inch and a splash of vinegar. Cover tightly and place on stovetop. Bring to a boil on high heat, watching carefully. (It will take about 10 minutes.) As soon as it comes to a boil, turn the heat off but don’t remove the lid. Start a timer for 10 minutes.
- When the ten minutes are up, drain the hot water and rinse the eggs in a colander with cold water until they are cool enough to be handled. Return to the cooled pot or a bowl, add just enough water to cover, and add a layer ice cubes on top of the eggs. Leave for about 30 minutes. Drain off the water and they are ready to peel!
- While all this is going on, you can fry your bacon. Once crisp, remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Make sure to save the grease! Dice the cooled bacon into bits and set aside.
- Once your eggs are peeled, cut each in half lengthwise. Place the yolks in a mixing bowl and mash with the mayo and Dijon. Add the reserved bacon grease and stir until smooth. Add in bacon bits.
- Pickle relish is often a staple in deviled egg recipes, but we have omitted it due to the sugar, and we think these taste great without it! If you are really missing it, consider a sugar-free pickle relish that you can find at the grocery store next to the regular sweet relish. Or go ahead and add the conventional stuff! Just know that adding 2 tablespoons of convention sweet pickle relish is going to add about 1/2 net carb per serving.
- Place a scoop of the yolk mixture in the cavity of each egg and top with chives.
