  • Yields: 12 deviled eggs


6 large hard-boiled eggs

1/3 cup Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise, plus 1 extra tablespoon for decoration

1 yellow mustard

1 teaspoon sweet pickle juice

1 pinch table salt

5 slices bacon, finely chopped


Cut hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise.

Remove the yolks and crumble them in a bowl.

Add 1/3 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise, mustard, pickle juice and salt. Stir until smooth and creamy.

Equally divide the filling among the 12 egg halves, spreading the filling in an even layer over top of the egg. Leave about an 1/8th of an inch border around the outer edge of the egg.

Sprinkle bacon over top and use your fingers to press the bacon into a football shape.

Spoon the remaining 1 tablespoon of Miracle Whip or mayonnaise into a small zip top bag. Snip off the tip leaving a small opening.

Pipe a straight line of mayo down the center of each egg, going lengthwise.

Add 3-4 short lines of mayo going across the long line to create the football laces.

Serve and enjoy!

See the tutorial at Hungry Happenings for detailed instructions on making perfectly cooked easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs.
