How To Boil Eggs like a Pro
I like to bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. I add a bit of vinegar to the water. I gently add the 10 large eggs to the water with a wooden spoon and cook for 10 minutes at a rapid boil. Then I remove from the heat, drain the water from the pot and quickly fill it with cold water and ice. Let the eggs sit in ice water for 2 minutes before peeling.
How to Make Fried Garlic + Bacon Deviled Eggs
You need to start by frying up your bacon until crispy. Then in the leftover bacon grease, fry minced garlic. Let it all cool down while you boil the eggs. Then you slice your eggs in half and carefully remove the yolks. Once you’ve got all the yolks in a bowl, add in the mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, minced up bacon and garlic. Mix and mash it all up and then scoop it into the whites.
