​​​​​​​​Deviled Eggs

Everytime I make deviled eggs the Inxs song, "Devil Inside" pops into my head. But I like to rewrite the lyrics: "Spices inside, bacon outside. Every single deviled egg has mayo inside." What's heavenly about deviled eggs are the variations on what you can add depending on your personal tastes. This recipe plays with your pallet. The flavors come in waves. Your taste buds will experiences savory, sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness at different times during the bite and while you chew.
