Try this delicious low carb appetizer of bbq bacon cheddar deviled eggs! A fun and tasty finger food that’s super easy to make. Only 0.7g net carbs per serving.
I was on an egg kick last week and thought about making deviled eggs. I was trying to come up with a little twist on the usual and remembered a good bbq bacon cheddar burger I saw advertised. That how this low carb bbq bacon cheddar deviled egg dish was born. All I can say is that these are delicious! The cheddar is subtle but goes great with the bacon and bbq sauce. It’s a dish everyone will love.
Low Carb BBQ Sauce
I think the bbq sauce goes great with these eggs but it is high in carbs. However I have a low carb bbq sauce that I make myself that you can use. I think it’s delicious but there are also sugar free bbq sauces on Amazon. If you serve regular sauce on the side then you can just skip it if you are watching your carbs but it will be there for everyone else.
Now I wanted to bring up the cheese. I used a sharp white cheddar cheese and grated it using a microplane or zester/grater. You can see how full and fluffy it is from the picture below. That is only 1 oz of cheese! But more importantly it makes it easier to mix the cheese in with the yolk mixture. So the finer the grate the better.
BBQ Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs Recipe
- Using a microplane or zester, grate your cheddar cheese.
- Cut hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise and scoop out the yolks.
- Mix yolks, cheddar and mayo in a bowl and then stuff the egg whites.
- Top with a piece of cook thick bacon.
- Serve with low carb bbq sauce on the side.
These low carb deviled eggs would be great to take to a party or to eat as a snack. A note of caution, the bacon gets soggy if they are refrigerated over night so eat them with in the day or keep the bacon separate until ready to use. The nutritional information for 1 egg (half) is:
