Ingredients:

1 Dozen Eggs

4 Strips of Bacon – cooked and chopped

1/2 to 3/4 cups of Mayonnaise

3 Tbs Sweet Relish

1/2 Cup of Horseradish Cheddar

2 Tbs Horseradish Mustard

1 Tbs Franks Hot Sauce (more to taste)

1 1/2 Tbs Sour Cream

Salt & Pepper

Optional: If you can’t find horseradish cheddar or horse radish mustard then simply add 1 to 2 tablespoons of prepared horseradish.

Preparation:

Begin by boiling 1 dozen eggs. Avoid overcooked eggs. Over cooking will lead to a greenish tint and your eggs won’t look as vibrant. Additionally, perfectly cooked eggs will have a creamier consistency. You also want to avoid under cooking your eggs. Under-cooked eggs will not blend properly and have a tendency to clump.

Cook bacon until crisp and crumble.

Tip: For perfectly cooked bacon arrange bacon on a sheet tray with rack. Place in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.

For perfectly boiled eggs every time follow these instructions:

Place eggs in pot large pot and cover with cold water. Cook eggs over medium high and bring them to a gentle roiling boil. Immediately remove the pan from the heat once the eggs begin to boil . Leave the eggs in the water and allow them to sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes pour off water and fill with cool water to stop the cooking. Peel your eggs while they are still warm.

Tip: Don’t use eggs fresh eggs. Eggs that are at least a week old are easier to peel.

Peel all eggs, slice them in half and remove yolks to a separate bowl. Arrange whites on a serving tray.

Mash the yolks until they are free from lumps. Add the following ingredients to the yolks.

  • half of the mayonnaise
  • relish,
  • mustard,
  • hot sauce,
  • cheddar and
  • sour cream.

Stir the mixture well. Add more mayonnaise until you’ve reached a thick yet creamy consistency. Be careful not to add too much mayonnaise as this will make your mixture runny.

Once you’ve achieved the proper consistency stir in crumbled bacon. If you are preparing these eggs in advance add bacon to top instead of in the mixture to avoid sogginess.

Fill your eggs generously. Use a piping bag or a spoon. When done sprinkle with seasoning. Here I’ve used a spicy mix. Delicious! This low carb deviled eggs recipe will become on of your favorites. They are perfect for parties too.

Low Carb Snacks: Sweet & Spicy Peanuts

While out shopping for my favorite snack, peanuts, I came upon a spicy variety. Those would be good I thought but I’ll bet they have sugar in them. Sure enough listed there in the ingredients was sugar.

These are spicy why does there need to sugar? I put them back. But then I got to thinking. Spicy and sweet would probably be really good. I’ll be I can make these myself.

I grabbed my normal variety, plain ole’ peanuts with salt. I checked out and headed home excited to experiment with the recipe I had in my head.

Low Carb Snacks: Sweet & Spicy Peanuts

This recipe, if you can call it that, is beyond simple. In fact it only calls for three ingredients. I’ll pretend this is a real recipe and list them in recipe format.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz Peanuts
  • 1 Tsp Walden Farms Pancake Syrup
  • Sprinkling of McCormick Fiery 5 Pepper to taste

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400°

Add a little butter or oil to a small skillet or oven safe pan. Spread peanuts into pan. Pour on Walden Farms Pancake Syrup. Stir to coat all nuts. Sprinkle McCormick’s Fiery 5 Pepper liberally. Don’t worry it’s not too hot. If you like it hotter add red pepper or red pepper flakes. Add a bit of salt too if desired. I did even though I bought salted nuts I wanted to really enhance the sweet flavor.

Pop in the oven for 15 –  20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool to room temp.

These nuts will be slightly sweet, a bit spicy, super crunchy and oh so delicious.

All nutrional values come from the peanuts based on a 1.375oz serving size. The Walden Farms Pancake Syrup has no calories or other nutrional value nor does the Fiery 5 Pepper seasoning. Note this seasoning does list sugar as an ingredient (something I didn’t notice when I bought it). But I’m certain not much and the amount is under your control.

All in all as far as low carb snacks go this one will top my list. Right below peanut butter of course. What do you think? Would you care to give this “un”recipe a try? Comment below.
