3 tablespoons Bourbon
3 tablespoons brown sugar
12 large eggs, hardboiled 
1/3 cup organic mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chopped chives, plus more for garnish
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Place equal parts Bourbon and brown sugar in a small sauce pan. Heat until fully combined, simmer – do not allow to boil – for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat. Allow to cool slightly.

In a medium skillet cook bacon on medium heat until crisp, be cautious not to burn. Place on bacon on paper towels.

When bacon is cool to the touch, dip each piece into the bourbon syrup, coat both sides and place on a plate to cool completely.

Peel hardboiled eggs, half lengthwise with a sharp knife and remove yolks. Reserve yolks in separate bowl. Rinse off egg white halves to remove any remaining yolks.

Chop yolks into fine pieces using a knife or food processor. In a medium size bowl, combine reserved yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, and chopped chives in a medium bowl. Stir until well combined. season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Transfer to a resealable bag. Cut a small triangle off 1 corner to allow mixture to be piped into whites; garnish each egg with crumbled bacon. For an additional garnish add chives to the platter.

      Chene – they are SO tasty. Best part is you can make all the parts a day ahead then just assemble right before serving.
