Looking for a last minute Easter appetizer idea? You can’t go wrong with deviled eggs and why not make them a little more interesting by making them with all of the flavours of bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers? These deviled eggs are stuffed with the mashed egg yolks, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, jalapenos and bacon and then they are sprinkled with even more cheddar cheese before some brief time under the broiler to melt the cheese! Who says you can’t enjoy one of your favourite game day snacks at your family holiday? These deviled eggs taste just like jalapeno poppers and they will make the perfect addition to any holiday spread!
Instead of topping these deviled eggs with melted cheese top them with panko bread crumbs for a crispy topping!
Looking for a vegetarian version? Feel free to omit the bacon!
