These step you outside the normal boundaries of deviled eggs with a surprise ingredient - potato chips! This was my Dad's (Wick Brandon) recipe - he got the recipe from a box of potato chips in the 70's. There are NEVER leftovers, and Easter would not be the same without them. Enjoy! Viclynn
- 4 eggs, hard boiled
- 2 -4 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1⁄4 cup crushed potato chips
- 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
- 2 teaspoons parsley
- 1. Cut the eggs in half, lengthwise and scoop out yolks to a large bowl.
- 2. Mix in mayonnaise, potato chips, bacon and parsley. (Note that the potato chips will absorb some of the moisture, so I have noted 2-4 tbs. of mayo. I usually use more than less).
- 3. Stuff egg whites with yolk mixture.
- 4. Sprinkle with paprika and pepper.
- (Refrain from adding salt, as the salt on the potato chips adds flavor).
Where are the extra stars! These are amazingly delicious! They weren't as moist as some deviled eggs, but the taste was great. I halved the amount of bacon, and that didn't seem to impact the taste, at least not to us! Thanks so much for sharing a deiliciously different deviled egg recipe!
These were VERY well recieved. The guys loved it that I was able to overfill the eggs! "It helped cover up the 'yucky' white part." For myself, I thought they were a little too salty. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Viclynn. Made for PAC Spring 2010. You've been adopted! http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
Made for Fav's of 2009 Tag. I used Lay's Baked chips, the full amount of mayo and less bacon. They were good, but didn't seem very salty. I think I would add garlic powder and some salt. The kids liked them, but didn't like the paprika. :) Like Terri said, there was more filling than fit in the eggs.
