Jenny'S Meaty Deviled Eggs Recipe @pinch

Jenny is right, these deviled eggs are magic! If you think bacon should be a food group, you'll love these. They have a delicious smoky bacon flavor. No one will ever guess there's Spam in the egg mixture. It just adds to the savory flavor of the filling. There's also a touch of sweet flavor in the filling from honey mustard. The inspiration behind this recipe is my love of bacon and my love of deviled eggs! Put the two together and it is M-A-G-I-C! The recipe makes quite a bit of filling. Even with generous applications to the eggs, there should still be some leftover.
