Cracked Pepper & Bacon Deviled Eggs

Bacon Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs. And I thought what do I love when I eat eggs? Bacon of course, so they seem to go hand-in-hand. With Easter being this weekend, this is a perfect recipe to serve, or to make after your kids find all those hidden Easter eggs.

I love the eggs standing up. I think they look prettier, and not so regular looking and mixes it up a bit. But it is totally up to you.

I grew up in Vermont, so September is really when it starts to cool down. However, in California, we are still pushing 80-degree weather here, and people kind of look at you like a crazy person when you are wearing a beanie with shorts and a t-shirts. Now that we are in the middle of October, it should be completely acceptable to wear beanies, chunky sweaters and boots.  I am totally ready for a change in wardrobe!
