Wick's Easter Deviled Eggs

"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"

Ready In:
8 eggs




  • 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).

  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. What a fun twist! These were so unique and delicious. I used salt and vinegar this time, and am eager to try them again with another flavor. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '09 Edited to add: We tried them with cheddar & sour cream chips, and they were amazing!!
  5. Great flavor! [I used sour cream and onion chips]. I liked the eggs so much, I took the leftovers and mashed them together to make a sandwich filling...delicious. And when I even had too much sandwich filling, I used the last couple of tablespoons to roll up in a crisp iceberg lettuce leaf...yummy! I will definitely be using this recipe again and again.


I just turned the BIG 50, and cannot believe how much fun I am having! The mother of two, I am going to be a grandma soon, and if I could do so without hurting myself, I would do some cartwheels with excitement. Guess I'll be searching zaar for homemade baby food recipes soon. My son recently moved into his own home, and has become quite adept at cooking. I'm so pleased that he has interest in this hobby. His spaghetti sauce is 'da bomb! Thanks to his Grandma for teaching him how to prepare it. My sauce was more like chili for years! I've been cooking since I was a child and my Mom was ill. Good 'ol Southern dishes (grew up in Georgia) are still a staple. I've been married to the same, great guy for 30 years now, and can't wait for 30 more! Except for the fact that we live in a ridiculous climate (frigid in winter, humid and downright hot in summer), I'll keep him around! He's 1/2 Italian, 1/2 Danish, so we experience some great ethnic recipes as well. I bit off a little more than I can chew last Spring, when I agreed to cook and host my daughter's day-after-the-wedding-breakfast for 120 guests. The wedding was out of town, so I hauled in all of the food, rented a big suite at the resort, and tried my darndest to pull this off. My alarm clock did not go off, so I woke up 47 minutes before the first guest arrived! Talk about a nightmare, but thanks to my good ol' girlfriends, and lots of prayer (and cussin') we pulled it off. Sausage balls, mini quiches, homemade danish kringle, mini cinnamon rolls, etc. Wow. Christmas is my favorite season to cook -- I start cooking and freezing in October. Can never have enough goodies for drop by visitors. Last, the photo is of our Bichon, Lolly. She rules the roost (and my husband). She's 8 years old, and one of the smartest dogs I've ever known. What fun! But I don't think she's going to be too crazy about a new baby around...guess I'll have to start searching for dog treat recipes as well! I am a professional in marketing, and, except for the recent explosion of the economy, hoped to retire soon, so I can cook more often. And post more recipes on this site! Thanks so much to those of you that have commented on my recipes to date...appreciate it! Viclynn
