1. Prepare the Hard-Boiled Eggs:
Begin your culinary journey by preparing the hard-boiled eggs:
Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover them with cold water.
Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
Let the eggs simmer for 9-12 minutes.
Remove the eggs from the heat and immediately transfer them to an ice bath to cool rapidly.
Once cooled, peel the eggs and slice them in half lengthwise.
2. Create the Deviled Egg Filling:
Now, let’s make the creamy, flavorful deviled egg filling:
Carefully scoop out the egg yolks and place them in a mixing bowl.
Mash the egg yolks with a fork until they are smooth and crumbly.
Add mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, white wine vinegar, salt, and black pepper to the mashed yolks. Mix until all ingredients are well combined and the filling is creamy.
3. Load the Deviled Eggs:
To create the “loaded” aspect of these deviled eggs, let’s add the toppings:
Fill each egg white half with the prepared deviled egg filling, using a spoon or a piping bag for a neater presentation.
Now, the fun part—add your toppings! Sprinkle crumbled bacon, chopped fresh chives, minced red onion, shredded cheddar cheese, and pickled jalapeños over the deviled eggs.
4. Garnish and Serve:
