Post image for Bacon-Topped Deviled Eggs + Land O Lakes Giveaway!

When I can bring my serving plate home empty, I take it as a sure sign that my potluck dish was a hit. And if my fellow guests even want to abscond with the serving plate itself (because it’s that cool)?? Well, that’s a whole new level of potluck success for me.

I brought these Bacon-Topped Deviled Eggs, from a recipe on the Land O Lakes website, to the end-of-the-year party for our preschool board. At home, I tend to be a bit of a deviled egg purist – very simple, classic recipe with nothing more than a shake of paprika on top. But for this board party I thought it would be fun to branch out a little bit, incorporating sour cream into the yolk mixture (this made them a bit paler in color, but extra light in texture) as well as scallions (I grew them in my windowsill!) and, of course, crispy crumbled bacon. Dare I say I enjoyed these even more than the original?

Bacon-Topped Deviled Eggs
We’re big deviled egg fans in our house but I usually don’t consider bringing them to potlucks because they need to stay cold. Land O Lakes sent me a deviled egg server that’s been ingeniously designed with an ice compartment in the base. Each egg stays nice and chilled in its own little well, no more slipping and sliding around. What a terrific idea! As part of their Bite-Sized Brunch celebration, they’d like to send one of these awesome trays to a lucky Cooking On the Side reader, as well as a mini muffin pan and two-tier server (these items, from Crate and Barrel and Williams-Sonoma, are valued at more than $100). Read on for details on how to enter! [THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED]

I love eggs baked into goodies like cookies and cakes! 🙂 Otherwise I’d take them sunnyside up with a side of toast. Yum!


Doris May 23, 2012 at 11:00 AM

I like to make egg muffins (filled with sausage, onions, peppers, cheese, etc) for brunch or a large crowd because they can all be made at once and no standing over a skillet while everyone waits for their serving.


Brian @ A Thought For Food May 23, 2012 at 11:17 AM

Well, when you put bacon on it… it’s bound to be good. 😉


Kelly D May 23, 2012 at 11:27 AM

I like scrambled eggs…with cheese & ketchup!


joeanna May 23, 2012 at 11:34 AM

I love scrambled eggs with spinach and jack cheese!


Shawnee F May 23, 2012 at 11:38 AM

I love scrambled eggs with salsa and spinach!


Angela May 23, 2012 at 11:43 AM

Love them scrambled in a breakfast taco!


dick bennett May 23, 2012 at 12:09 PM

favorite egg prep is called Sow’s ear pancake ,Sow’s Ear Baked Apple Pancake

Combine melted butter with eggs, milk, granulated sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and flour. Beat until mixed.

Heat butter with apple slices in a skillet until sizzling and slightly cooked. Pour in batter. Sprinkle top with brown sugar and bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes or until well browned and puffed. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut into wedges and serve.

Eggs are one of my favorite foods because they are so versatile! I’d say anything with a runny yolk is my favorite. But scrambled, in baked goods, hard boiled, they always taste amazing!


sara May 23, 2012 at 12:47 PM

my favorite way to eat eggs is poached, over polenta

My favorite way to eat eggs is as an egg breakfast sandwich! Some cheese, bacon, a bagel… yum!


Cindy B. May 23, 2012 at 1:11 PM

My favorite way to eat eggs is scrambled with cheese.


The Duo Dishes May 23, 2012 at 1:38 PM

The best eggs are lightly fried and runny on the inside with a sprinkle of salt and a wee bit of cayenne. Love a runny egg.


amy marantino May 23, 2012 at 2:01 PM

I love scrambled eggs with horseradish and frank’s hot sauce


ALison @ Ingredients, inc. May 23, 2012 at 2:58 PM

These look great and fun giveaway! Have a super weekend


MaryBeth May 23, 2012 at 4:06 PM

My favorite way to eat eggs is “over medium” with toast to dip into the yolks.


Babs May 23, 2012 at 5:48 PM

I absolutely love deviled eggs in almost any form (maybe not with anchovies). The deviled egg server looks fabulous. Second favorite is eggs cocotte in the ramekins with cheese and cream.


Jen @ Juanita's Cocina May 23, 2012 at 6:18 PM

My favorite way to eat eggs is in egg salad! YUM! What a great giveaway!

I love eggs just about every way except over-easy or poached. I love scrambled, fried, hard-boiled; in sandwiches, in skillet scrambles, in baked goods, etc.


Mary May 23, 2012 at 8:52 PM

I love eggs cooked anyway… except a fried egg with a hard yolk! It’s hard to pick one favorite so I’ll say cooked eggs. I’m on my way to check out the deviled eggs with bacon..yummy!!!!


Karin May 23, 2012 at 9:32 PM

I love omelets.


Patricia Schneider May 23, 2012 at 10:20 PM

I like having eggs over easy with hash browns.


Laura Espinoza May 23, 2012 at 11:57 PM

I love hard eggs!!!


Karen Gervais May 24, 2012 at 3:47 AM

My own egg and bacon on a toasted, buttered English muffin that I call Egg Kmuffin (like McDonald’s Egg McMuffin). I also love deviled eggs.


Kathy May 24, 2012 at 5:05 AM

I love eggs. . my all time favorite way has to be Deviled tho!!


Kari May 24, 2012 at 5:18 AM

I love eggs. Deviled eggs, egg salad, fried eggs (runny or hard), poached eggs, on a bagel or toast with bacon and cheese, a egg over easy on top of biscuits with sausage gravy, etc…breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s all good.


Julie May 24, 2012 at 6:17 AM

scrambled eggs and english muffin thanks


Alishia Kuczynski May 24, 2012 at 7:26 AM

My 6 year old daughter and I LOVE scrambled eggs with spicy salsa con queso mixed in after cooking!


Valerie May 24, 2012 at 7:38 AM

Scrambled eggs with salsa wrapped in a tortilla.


LB May 24, 2012 at 7:53 AM

I love ham and cheese omelets!


Becki May 24, 2012 at 8:03 AM

My favorite way to have eggs is a comfort food for me. My dad used to take a can of corn (or fresh if it was available) and fry it in butter , add a little touch of honey and pepper and cook it till it would start to caramelize while it was cooking he would scramble some eggs in a bowl and then add them to the corn. O my garsh! So good! But eggs are good any way you fix them!


Meghann May 24, 2012 at 8:05 AM

My favorite way to eat eggs is definitely scrambled with cheese and lots of hot sauce! 🙂


Liz @YUM at first bite May 24, 2012 at 8:19 AM

We LOVE Deviled Eggs and will be making them this holiday weekend. I’m definitely going to be giving this recipe a try. Bacon & Deviled Eggs….yes please!


Christina'Marie May 24, 2012 at 8:24 AM

Honestly, deviled eggs are my FAVORITE and only way that I eat eggs. Hubs loves sunny side up, though… so I make both kinds quite often 🙂


Darlene White May 24, 2012 at 8:30 AM

Eggs! They’re not just for breakfast! Main dish meal– egg rolls made with eggs combined with bread crumbs, onion, and parmesan cheese, fried & rolled, then cooked in your favorite tomato sauce and served with pasta. Yummy! Pour some of the batter over thin slices of eggplant and top with a second slice of eggplant and fry same as the egg rolls. A terrific sandwich, hot or cold! Requested for every Birthday menu in our family!


Tiffany May 24, 2012 at 9:27 AM

I like me eggs served over easy the best…but will never turn down a deviled egg 🙂


Beth May 24, 2012 at 9:30 AM

Argh, that’s tough – I think my favorite way to eat eggs is tied between devilled eggs (my Aunt makes these amazing ones with dill instead of paprika) and quiche. Cuz you just can’t go wrong with either.


erin May 24, 2012 at 10:13 AM

Hard boiled on a salad!


Emily May 24, 2012 at 10:40 AM

I love eggs in just about every way- deviled, fried, scrambled. 🙂 My mom was allergic to eggs, so I didn’t get nearly enough growing up.


Kim in MD May 24, 2012 at 11:00 AM

I stumbled upon your blog today through Foodgawker, and I love it! My favorite way to eat eggs these days is to bake them in the oven in individual ramekins. You can top the egg with whatever you have on hand, and the presentation is beautiful in the ramekins!


Debbie Cree May 24, 2012 at 11:32 AM

I eat hard boiled eggs every morning, but I also like them scrambled and over-easy. My absolute favorite is deviled eggs. I can’t stay away when I see a plate of deviled eggs!


Ces May 24, 2012 at 11:51 AM

Since signing up to receive produce boxes through a CSA program, I’ve been eating a lot of omeletes and quiches with the veggies and herbs I don’t quite know what to do with otherwise.

I love eggs cooked in any fashion. I can’t choose my favorite, I love hard boiled, over easy, omelets, in soup, salads and sandwiches. They are my to go to food when I don’t feel well or I want something light. I think my favorite way to eat eggs is trying someone else’s recipe and cooking!


Nancy May 24, 2012 at 2:42 PM

My favorite breakfast egg is sunny side up, served on a freshly cooked tortilla with avocado and homemade salsa.


soha molina May 24, 2012 at 5:32 PM

I love it on sour dough bead topped with French Feta Cheese.


Chexy May 24, 2012 at 9:03 PM

My top favorite things to eat with eggs are:
Steak and Eggs (over easy) with some hash-browns and pancakes.
or a good old fashioned egg salad sandwich. 🙂


Leah May 24, 2012 at 9:55 PM

Huevos Rancheros…The best!

I love eggs cooked many ways, but my favorite way is boiled eggs diced up and mixed with some mircale whip, a little yellow musturd, and diced onion served in-between two slices on buttered toast.


Donna McLendon May 25, 2012 at 8:40 AM

One of the many ways I love to eat my eggs: As a ham, cheese and spinach omelette 🙂


Michelle F. May 25, 2012 at 11:34 AM

I love eggs. Pretty much any way you can possibly cook an egg, I like it. But I would have to say it’s a toss up between deviled eggs and poached eggs for my favorite way to eat them. You just can’t go wrong with eggs really! 😀
