• 6 eggs
• 4 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2" wide by 2" long rectangles
• 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
• 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
Black pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste
• 1/8th of an orange bell pepper, cut into 12 small triangles
• 12 jarred diced pimientos, cut into small strips, if needed
• 2-3 pickled jalapenos slices, cut into 24 small squares (also can use fresh jalapenos or black olives)
Paprika, for topping


Boil the eggs: In a large pot, place the eggs in a single layer. Fill with water, 1 inch above the eggs. Place the pot over medium-high heat until it begins to boil. Once boiling, remove from heat, cover with lid, and let sit for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the eggs with a spoon and place in a bowl of cold water.
Cook the bacon: In a non-stick skillet, cook the rectangles of bacon until crisp. Remove from skillet, and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
Make filling: Once eggs are cooled, peel them and discard the shells. Using a sharp knife, cut each egg in half lengthwise. Scoop the egg yolks into a medium mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, Dijon, vinegar, and worcestershire sauce. Using the back of a fork or spoon, mash the egg yolks and continue to mix all ingredients together until smooth. Taste test the filling, and add pepper and salt in small amounts until it is to your liking. Scoop or pipe the egg yolk mixture into each of the hollow egg whites.
Add turkey features: To the back of the deviled egg, add 3-4 pieces of bacon for the tail feathers. To the front of the egg, add a small orange bell pepper triangle for the beak, a small pimiento slice for the wattle, and two small squares of jalapeno for the turkey's eyes. Lastly, sprinkle with a bit of paprika.
