DIRECTIONS

STEP 1

Hard boil eggs: Place eggs in a medium saucepan. Fill a saucepan with water; cover the eggs with ½"-1" water. Turn stove to medium/high heat and bring water to a boil. Once boiling, turn off heat, remove saucepan from burner and place lid on saucepan for 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon to remove eggs, immediately transfer eggs to a bowl filled with ice and water and ¼ tsp. baking soda. Removing one egg at a time from the cold water bath, roll eggs on a hard surface to begin breaking shell. If you need a bit of help while peeling the egg, place the egg under a bit of water to help remove the shell.

STEP 2

Slice the eggs lengthwise.

STEP 3

Using a small spoon, carefully remove egg yolks from egg white.

STEP 4

Place egg yolks in a medium mixing bowl, place egg whites on a serving plate.

STEP 5

In the medium mixing bowl, thoroughly mix together ¾ of the finely chopped bacon, bacon fat, mayonnaise, dijon mustard, garlic powder, and sea salt. Mash with a fork until creamy and combined.

STEP 6

Using a plastic bag with the corner cut off (or a pastry bag), place egg yolk mixture in a bag and fill egg whites.

STEP 7

Garnish with bacon pieces and paprika.
