My children and husband go nuts over these. I made them for a potluck at work and have been asked for them ever since. (If you can keep people out of them, you're doing better than I ever could.) The time that I spend prepping this depends on how fast you shell your eggs. I have two girls so we knock this out in about 30 minutes (minus cooking time).

  • Place eggs into a large pot and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium; boil eggs for 10 to 12 minutes. Drain the boiling water and fill pot with cold water. After 2 to 3 minutes, pour off water and replace with more cold water. Repeat until eggs are fully chilled, 10 to 15 minutes. Peel eggs.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat and cook and stir onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Slice eggs in half lengthwise and scoop yolks into a bowl; transfer egg white halves to a plate. Mash egg yolks with a fork; stir in sour cream, mayonnaise, ranch dressing, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and lemon pepper seasoning until yolk mixture is smooth. Stir in sauteed onions, bacon bits and Cheddar cheese.

  • Generously fill egg halves with filling and sprinkle each deviled egg with paprika. Refrigerate until chilled before serving.

Instead of sauteing the onion in vegetable oil I used butter. The recipe didn't specify which kind of onion I should use I used four large green onions. I threw in a clove of fresh minced garlic in with the onion when I sauteed it. I used a homemade dry ranch dressing mix increased the bacon bits a bit and added a touch of Frank's Hot Sauce. The boys LOVED these deviled eggs--they ate every single one. Read More

I made these exactly as written and did not care the end result. I thought they were too rich and the taste was off. There clearly are people out there who like this combination of ingredients but to me i was looking for that perfect bite where creamy was balanced by tanginess. When you bite into these you taste lots of cheese onions and bacon followed by a taste of the creamy but forgettable yolk mixture. It actually made me feel nauseous. For me i will stick to classic deviled eggs in the future. Read More

2 thumbs up! I had never made deviled eggs before and didn't want to start out with just a basic mayo and mustard recipe so decided to give this a try. It's amazing! I cut the recipe down to 8 servings because I wanted to try it first and it's definitely a keeper. I didn't add any cheese because my husband doesn't care for it but everything else was to the T.

These are delicious!! I omit the onions and bake my eggs in a muffin tin at 325 degrees for 30 minutes (turn after 15 mins to avoid harmless brown spots) rather than boiling in water on the stove. It is easy and still yummy! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

My husband doesn't like Deviled Eggs but loved these! I was taking them to a Super Bowl Party and he said he was going to tell everyone they were Alligator eggs and was horrible. That way he could eat more. Was out of fresh onion so I used some dehydrated onions. Just soaked them in some water. Squeezed out the moisture and add them to the mixture. Worked fine. Thanks for sharing! Read More
