This BLT deviled eggs recipe started the way so many do in my kitchen: I was sick of eating the same ol’ same ol’, began grabbing a handful of this and that from the fridge, tossed it all together, and voila. I’ll admit, this can be a really hit or miss approach to cooking but sometimes this method results in surprisingly delicious food! I’m happy to report that the stars all aligned that day and my haphazard concoction came together seamlessly. The BLT deviled eggs were born and the recipe has been a huge hit in my house ever since.
Bacon, green onion, and sun-dried tomato make up the BLT trinity in this BLT deviled eggs recipe. It’s incredible how well these three ingredients complement each other, giving the traditional deviled egg a serious run for its money.
Just a fair warning: the unexpected burst of flavor from the bacon and sun-dried tomatoes is addictive. Whenever I whip these up, everyone in my house rushes the platter and they are gone within minutes! If you are bringing them to a party, be sure to show up with a big batch because they will disappear quickly!
If you need to make a shopping trip for the sun-dried tomatoes, definitely go with the ones packed in oil versus the dried options. The plain, dried variety tends to be bitter and requires a hydration period to develop full flavor. You can just skip all that and grab the oily ones instead – they taste better and are less work!
Meal Prep Tip
I’ve always got hardboiled eggs, bacon, and a variety of other staples pre-cooked and stored in the fridge. They are fantastic snacks for a low carb dieter and easy to prepare in large batches. Tasty by themselves, eggs and bacon contain the perfect macros and can be used in an endless array of dishes. I use bacon and boiled eggs in so much of my cooking, that it saves me a ton of time by routinely prepping these ingredients and having them handy for whenever’s clever. If you are on a low carb keto diet, or even just short on time, I highly recommend identifying your staples and prepping them ahead of time! Good luck on your journey!
