Directions

  1. Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Drain. Cool the eggs under cold running water. Peel once cold. Halve the eggs lengthwise and scoop the yolks into a bowl. Mash the yolks together with pressed garlic with a fork.
  2. Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate; chop once cool. Add to the mashed egg yolks. Stir the basil, mayonnaise, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper into the mixture until evenly mixed. Fill the egg white halves with the mixture; sprinkle each stuffed egg with a bit of paprika.

Loved it I followed the recipe exact and these are very filling can be eaten as a meal, with some sauteed mushrooms as I tried and I recommend it

As this recipe's first reviewer I wish I could give it a better send-off. I considered the amount of basil suspect, reduced it by half, and it still was more than plenty. I know it would be basil overkill if the full amount were used, and might even totally obscure any egg taste at all. I found the raw garlic rather unpleasant as well as the occasional bite of the red pepper flakes. I think garlic powder and cayenne or a little hot sauce would be better substitutes. Also, for my tastes (or maybe the size of the eggs) I needed to add more mayonnaise. What I did love was the bacon! I think this recipe has a fine start and with some modification would be a first rate deviled egg recipe.

WONDERFUL! Cut the recipe in 1/2 and pretty much just eye-balled everything to taste. I used garlic powder in place of the fresh, because I thought that might be too much. We LOVED the flavor of these! What a great change from the traditional deviled eggs. These will definately be made VERY often~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

My family really enjoyed these deviled eggs. I did cut back on the garlic cloves, as that sounded like quite a bit. I think what they liked best was the fresh basil taste along with the addition of the crushed red pepper flakes. Very different from my usual eggs that are on the sweet side. Thanks Joe for your version of Deviled Eggs.

These were most delicious!! I only did 4 eggs for me and my husband to share and I eye balled the ingredients. I used garlic powder, basil from my garden, and the microwavable bacon(thats all I had:). They were a big hit! I will make them again for sure! Next time I'll make more eggs cause they were gone in a flash! Very Very good!!

I thought these were wonderful, but I did leave out the garlic and cut down on the basil. I would make again.

Little less on the basil and a touch of mustard powder and pickle relish and its sweeter.
