Well, maybe not in this particular recipe, but you could serve that for dessert. This recipe is low carb and works well for some Paleo diets.

- 1 dozen eggs
- 6 slices bacon
- 1/2 c sour cream
- 2 tbsp. finely chopped sharp cheddar cheese slices
- 1 tsp. mustard
- Dash of salt and pepper
- Put the eggs in a saucepan, fill it with water until the eggs are covered, then bring it to a boil and immediately remove from the heat. Cover the pan and let the eggs sit for 10 to 12 minutes. Dump out the hot water and place the eggs under cold running water.
- While you are waiting for the eggs to boil and all that, fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until evenly brown. After blotting the slices on some paper towels, crumble them into pieces and set them aside.
- Peel the eggs, and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks with a spoon and put them in a small bowl. Mash the egg yolks with a fork or whisk and mix in the sour cream, bacon, and cheese. Stir in the mustard, salt, and pepper. Fill the egg white halves with the yolk mixture, cover your wonderful deviled egg creation, and refrigerate it until you’re ready to serve it to your hungry dinner guests.
Note: Please do not drool into the eggs while making them. It ruins the flavor.
