This recipe for Spicy Bacon Deviled Eggs is so good, you’ll never want plain deviled eggs again. They are easily low carb and so full of flavor!
I love deviled eggs. Like I seriously love them. I don’t want your pretty eggs with the yolk part that was piped in like cake frosting, that you got at the giant supermarket. I want overfilled, messy, really flavor-full deviled eggs that you can eat with steak.

These spicy bacon deviled eggs are just that. Full of flavor, a little bit of crunch from the chopped up bacon and some heat from the hot sauce.
THE SNEAKY SUGAR PROBLEM
Sneaky sugar is in a lot of produce that you wouldn’t think have or need sugar. This recipe contains three of those items in my “sneaky sugar” book. Okay, I don’t have a book of sneaky sugar items, but that might be an idea. The first is mayonaise, which is a base in all my deviled eggs. It’s also in my Cucumber Basil Chicken Salad and numerous other item. I love the Sir Kensington’s Organic Mayonnaise and I am going to try the mayo from Primal Kitchen. There is a vegan mayonnaise called Just Mayo, that is not keto (but is low carb) and has no eggs in it, but it tastes fantastic.
I was so angry when I looked at the label of my beloved deli mustard AFTER I had purchased two containers of it. I love all the mustards from Beaverton Foods and the Beaver Deli Mustard was my favorite. I happened to look at the label and it contained four dreaded words…high fructose corn syrup. Why?!? I’m sure when it was created in 1929 it didn’t contain HCFS! I was so angry that I wrote them an email. Ridiculous.
So I’m looking for new mustards. On my radar is this Eden Foods Organic Brown Mustard. They make it with apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar. (Amazon link) I’m playing with the idea of making my own mustards and mayo. I’ve tried making my own mayo before, but I used EVOO and the olive oil flavor was way too strong. So I’m going to try with avocado oil.
The third sneaky sugar is the hot sauce. Being perfectly honest, I love sriracha. I love the garlicky kick of it. I used it in this recipe. It does list sugar on the label and every sriracha I’ve come across lists sugar on the nutrition label. I guess I could make my own, but that sounds involved. This Simple Girl Hot Sauce is sugar free and could be a good substitute.
I prepared the eggs in the pressure cooker, so they were super easy to peel. See how I did that here.
- 8 hard boiled eggs, halved
- 4 strips crispy bacon
- 2 tablespoons deli mustard
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons Sriracha or preferred hot sauce
Separate the yolks from the hard boiled egg and place in a separate bowl. Take the bacon strips and chop it up into small pieces. Add most into the bowl, reserving some bacon bits for a garnish. Stir in other ingredients and combine until the yolks are paste like. Spoon into the egg white halves. Garnish with remaining bacon bits. Keep refrigerated until served.
