Deviled eggs stuffed with cheddar cheese, crispy bacon, and jalapeño pepper make a delicious keto appetiser. I make deviled eggs almost every week and that's why I always keep boiled eggs in the fridge.

Let's start with the basics - hard boiling eggs. To my surprise, not even I knew how to cook eggs perfectly, until recently. I've tried "regular" boiling, steaming, and even oven baking. Eventually, I realised that the best way to get perfectly cooked eggs is to slowly boil them in hot water and immediately cool them down in ice water. If you ever cooked eggs for too long, you must have noticed an unsightly green layer around the egg yolks (see step 2 in this recipe) - that's very common with a regular boiling method.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings, 8 deviled eggs)

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise (30 g/ 1.1 oz) - you can make your own
  • 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese (38 g/ 1.3 oz)
  • 2 slices crispy bacon, crumbled (20 g/ 0.7 oz)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, sliced (14 g/ 0.5 oz)

  2. Once the water starts boiling, turn off the heat and cover with a lid. Remove from the burner and keep the eggs covered in the pot for 13 minutes (10 minutes for medium sized eggs, 15 minutes for extra large eggs). Keto Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs

  4. To peel, remove from the ice water and crack each egg several times on the kitchen surface. Gently peel off the shells.
    Fresh eggs don't peel well. It's better if you use eggs that you bought 7-10 days before cooking. Keto Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs
  5. Cut the eggs in half and carefully - without breaking the egg whites - spoon the egg yolks into a bowl.
    Hard-boiled eggs can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Keto Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

LOVE these!  Thank you for the recipe!

If you use that many boiled eggs, you should invest in one of the automatic egg cookers!  I got mine for less than $20 on Amazon.  I can cook 7 eggs in just a few minutes!  One of the BEST investments EVER!!!  Eggs peel perfectly EVERY time 😊

Are your eggs right from the fridge OR are they at room temperature before you put them in the pan??
Thanks so much

Hi Susan, I keep them at room temperature.
