  • In a shallow frying pan, fry the bacon strips on medium heat on each side until crispy. Set aside, and blot with paper towels to remove excess oil.  Roughly chop into ½” pieces.

  • Add remaining ingredients into the bowl.  (reserve ½ bacon bits, chopped chives, and the paprika for garish.
  •  Combine all ingredients together.  I usually use a potato masher to ensure that everything is incorporated thoroughly.
  • Once combined, scoop the mixture into a large zip-loc storage bag for piping.  Cut off small corner and dispense the filling into all of the egg halves.
  • Once all filling is dispensed, top each egg with bacon bits and chives.  Lightly sprinkle the paprika all over the eggs.
  • Serve chilled

Enjoy!
