“BLT” Deviled Eggs

Part of the Easter Tradition in my world means coloring of hard boiled eggs. I love this silly activity and it’s something that I do with my mom every year. This is all great… and hard boiled eggs are good, but somehow every year we go a little overboard and after a day, I am usually kind of sick of boring old hard boiled eggs. What to do?

The russetts fall apart and lend their starch to the broth, versus the waxy that hold together. I even used a few purple potatoes in mine, just for contrast.

So I had to run out and buy some yummy cheese and bread and came up with this concoction. Bacon, caramelized onions with a shot of bourbon, a really nice cheese. Lunch is served.
