Bacon Deviled Eggs

We love our deviled eggs, but we’ve been known to make a mess of them in the cooler. For foolproof packing, try cutting hardboiled eggs across the equator instead of pole to pole. You can then pack them right back into the cardboard egg cartons, which keep your pretty filling protected. Serve with toothpicks for easy removal. This recipe comes from Suzanne Strickland of Stone Soup in Landrum.
