  • Yield: 24 deviled eggs
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Total: 1 hr 
  • Active: 40 mins   

Ingredients (16)

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots covered with lemon juice and soaked till pink then drained dry
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt
  • 6 slices thin-cut bacon, cooked till very crispy
  • 4 slices aged provolone cut into 6 triangles
  • 24 slices of pickled jalapeño
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • Sea salt
  • Cracked black pepper


  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to a rapid boil. Gently lower the eggs into the water and return to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes and remove one egg to test for doneness. The yolks should be just cooked through.
  2. Remove from the water and cool under running water till cold.
  3. Peel the eggs, and remove a small slice from either end, just enough so that it will stand upright, and save the white bits in a bowl. Then cut in half through the equator. Remove the yolks and add to the bowl with the slices of whites. Use a whisk to break up the whites and and yolks with a stabbing motion. They should be the size of large peas.
  4. Depending on the exact size of the eggs you may need slightly less or more mayo. Add enough so the yolks are creamy but still hold a shape. Add the rest of the ingredients and season with the salt. Fill the egg white halves generously, the filling should rise 1/4″ to 1/2″ above the top of the whites, ( you may not have enough to fill all the whites)
  5. Top each egg with a slice of jalapeño , two inch piece of bacon, and then a slice of provolone.
  6. Warm in a 450°F oven till the cheese just starts to melt.
  7. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish all of the eggs with the remaining ingredients.
