8 eggs

Ingredients

  • 6 Cups cold water
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 Cup mayonnaise, preferable Duke's
  • 1 Teaspoon whole grain mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon rendered bacon fat
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Combine the water and vinegar in a medium saucepan.

Add the eggs and bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it sit for 10 minutes.

Transfer the eggs to an ice bath and let them chill for 5 minutes then peel them. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and then scoop out the yolks.

Combine the egg yolks with the mayonnaise, mustard, Sriracha, and rendered bacon fat in a medium bowl. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and whisk it until it is smooth.

Using a piping bag, fill the egg whites with the mixture. 

Deviled Eggs Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Deviled Eggs Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
