Never being someone who likes to leave “well enough alone”, I had to create my own version of this beloved traditional side dish.
Let’s get started on these best ever smokehouse stuffed eggs.
- 1 dozen eggs
- BBQ Sauce
- Onion Powder
- Garlic – one clove
- Claussen pickles
- Dijon Mustard
Preparing the Ingredients: Getting Started
Prepping the Eggs: The quick and easy way
I have become a big fan of the Instapot. I place one dozen eggs in the Instapot and add 1 cup of water. Press the manual button for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes is up, immediately vent. Remove the lid. Add ice and cold water until the eggs are submerged then wait for 5 minutes.
Peel and cut eggs lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolks and place them in a mixing bowl. Place egg halves on a platter.
The Egg Mixture: Bacon, BBQ Sauce, Pickles, and Garlic
Bacon – oven cook. 400 degrees for about 18 minutes. I usually cook the entire pound. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel-lined plate and pat the top of the strips gently with paper towels to absorb additional grease. Break into pieces and set aside.
Mash up the egg yolks in a mixing bowl. Now, here’s the southern way of making these… no real measurements. I add mayo (make your own if you can) to the yolks until the yolks become creamy.
Next, I add the garlic and onion powder until the flavor is light and barely there.
Now comes the BBQ sauce, start with about 2 tablespoons, and taste. Some LOVE BBQ sauce, some do not so adjust accordingly. Dijon mustard adjusts in the same way but always keeps it 1/2 the volume of the added BBQ Sauce. MIX WELL.
Scoop egg mixture into a Ziploc bag and snip the corner off to make a “piping bag” to fill the empty egg halves. Fill the egg halves
Chop Claussen pickles. I chose Claussen for its crisp texture. Sprinkle over egg mixture.
Finally, add the bacon. I added these pieces individually to make sure I maximized the bacon goodness.
Finish off with a sprinkling of paprika.
