Guacamole Deviled Eggs with Crispy Bacon

Guacamole Deviled Eggs with Crispy Bacon.

One week to go before we complete our first year of ‘food blogging.’  A term I hesitated to use for most of this year.  On one hand it was hard to put myself in that category, with so many very talented writers, recipe creators, and photography wizards.  And on the other hand, I had always thought of a blog as a personal diary of sorts, something I couldn’t envision Lemony Thyme becoming last June.  However, as time progressed I began to open up a bit.  A simple reference from a friend or family member about something I wrote in a post, felt good.  It made me smile.

So now with one week to go, all the recipes that haven’t made the pages of Lemony Thyme are dancing around in my head like kids on the playground….”pick me,” “pick me.”  Today I pick Deviled Eggs to be on our team.  After all, no Sunday potluck or summer cookout was ever complete without them.  My mom taught me how to make them, I taught Shelby, and I’m certain each generation to follow will have a Deviled Egg recipe tucked quietly up their sleeve.

I put a little twist on today’s Deviled Eggs, the result of 4 ripe avocados sitting on the counter.  We love Guacamole.  We love Deviled Eggs.  Why not Guacamole Deviled Eggs {with Crispy Bacon}.  Needless to say, they were delicious.  And the extra crispy bacon and scallions were the perfect topper.  We had these for breakfast, one of the quirks (and perks) of food blogging.  I like it.
