It’s Super Bowl time! This is me not caring. At all. What I do care about though is all the food that you get to eat while pretending to watch the game! One of my favorite things to eat at Super Bowl parties are deviled eggs. Not just any deviled eggs, Bacon Jalapeño Deviled Eggs. They remind me of Jalapeño poppers that are wrapped in bacon, but in an egg. I just want to eat all the Super Bowl food.
So why do I hate the Super Bowl? Well I guess it would start with my complete and total contempt for the sport of football. Not because of any like Will Smith in Concussion agenda or the fact that the NFL is a “non-profit” organization and therefore doesn’t have to pay taxes on billions of dollars, no nothing like that. It’s just boring. And so fast that it’s slow. Each play lasts for like 2 seconds and then they go to commercial…and repeat, for 4 unmerciful hours. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
You know what IS fun to do when watching football? You know, if you’re held hostage and forced to watch the game just to be able to eat the delicious Super Bowl food, is to listen to all the things the commentators say. They sound so filthy! I’m sure in the context of football they are perfectly innocent things to say, but man, if you listen to the same comments out of context it’s so dirty and hilarious! I listen to this radio show called The Woody Show (you can download their podcast on iTunes and thank me later) and they always play clips from the football commentators and it’s SO hilarious. I crack up every time. Now it’s all I can ever hear when I’m pretending to watch a game for the free food. Here are some examples:
- The hole closed on him before he could penetrate it.
He’s off to the sidelines for a quick blow.
It’s a game of inches.
That hole was so big, you could drive a truck through it.
When you get down in this area, you just gotta start pounding.
See what I mean! I know, I’m so immature, I like, “That’s what she said.” and fart jokes too. I’m telling you though, if the only way to get your hands on the delicious Super Bowl food is to actually gasp watch the game, then have fun with this. You’re welcome.
If you actually do like football and are super excited about the game (like my cousin Jen) then sweet! I’m excited for you. You should make this recipe and bring it to the game for all of the people who are there like me. We thank you. Since we’re just there for the food and all. I just realized that in 98% of situations, I’m just “there for the food”. In fact I’m going to start a new blog or write another cookbook called, I’m Just Here for the Food. Don’t still my idea. K thanks bye.
- 4 bacon slices
- 6 large eggs, hard-boiled
- ½ cup (120 ml) mayonnaise, store-bought or homemade (page 78*)
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ⅛ teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
- Paprika for dusting (optional)
- Cook the bacon in a large skillet set over medium-high heat until crispy. Place the cooked bacon on a plate lined with paper towels to cool and drain.
- While the bacon is cooling, remove the shells from the hard-boiled eggs and slice the eggs in half lengthwise. The yolks should pop right out; if not, use a spoon to gently scoop them out into a small mixing bowl. Place the egg white halves cut side up on a separate plate.
- Add the mayonnaise, mustard, salt, and pepper to the egg yolk bowl. Use a fork to mix and mash the ingredients together until smooth. Alternately, for an ultra smooth egg mixture, use an electric mixer set to medium speed and beat until smooth and combined.
- After the bacon has cooled, chop it into small pieces. Transfer the egg mixture to a piping bag or resealable plastic bag with the corner snipped off and pipe the egg mixture into each egg white. Sprinkle with bacon pieces and diced jalapeños. Dust with paprika if desired.
- *Page 78 of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind the cookbook. A few clean store-bought brands that I really like are Primal Kitchen Mayo and Sir Kensingtons.
- This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled depending on your serving needs. This is one of my favorite recipes to make for group events like weekend BBQs, birthday parties, and the Super Bowl of course. To get perfectly boiled eggs every time, grab an egg timer at Bed, Bath, and Beyond or Cost Plus World Market. They are a game changer.
