3 to 4 bacon slices (1⁄2 cup when chopped, depending on thickness)
1 1⁄2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon mustard
1⁄2 teaspoon paprika, divided
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
DirectionsPreparing:5 minCooking:15 min
STEP 1Bring a large pot half filled with water to a boil. Gently place the eggs in the water, being careful not to crack the shells. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove the pot from the water. Set aside to cool.
STEP 2While the eggs cook, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more, or until crisp. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain.
STEP 3Once the eggs cool, gently crack the shells and peel them. Cut the peeled eggs in half lengthwise.
STEP 4Scoop the yolks into a medium bowl. Add the mayonnaise, mustard, 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
STEP 5Chop the bacon into small pieces. Divide into two equal amounts (about 1⁄4 cup each). Add 1⁄4 cup of bacon to the yolks. Mix well to combine.
STEP 6Place the egg whites cut-side up on a plate. Spoon an equal amount of the yolk mixture into each.
STEP 7Use the remaining 1⁄4 cup of bacon and 1⁄4 teaspoon of paprika to garnish the eggs, and serve.
