At our house, it doesn’t get any better than deviled eggs with bacon—bourbon candied bacon, that is. See if you can resist them. We can’t. —Colleen Delawder, Herndon, Virginia

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons bourbon, optional
  • 4 thick-sliced bacon strips
  • EGGS:
  • 12 hard-boiled large eggs
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • Minced fresh chives


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon syrup and salt. If desired, stir in bourbon. Coat bacon with brown sugar mixture. Place on a rack in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until crisp. Cool completely.
  2. Cut eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks, reserving whites. In a small bowl, mash yolks. Add mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon syrup, 1 tablespoon mustard and both types of pepper; stir until smooth. Chop bacon finely; fold half into egg yolk mixture. Spoon or pipe into egg whites. Sprinkle with remaining bacon and the chives. Refrigerate, covered, until serving.
