Bacon & Cajun Deviled Eggs

Bacon & Cajun Deviled Eggs

Every year during the holidays I made the same deviled eggs. They are good but they taste the same and for me that can be boring. I thought I would get a little creative and spice up my deviled eggs just a bit. These are are deviled eggs with a little spicy kick to them with a tad of BACON on the top.

I only made 12 and they were gone in just a couple minutes. Next time I will be sure to make double what I made to make sure I get at least a couple. Below is my recipe for Bacon & Cajun Deviled Eggs.

The New C&H Flip Top Sugars + Giveaway

Disclosure – I received product samples to facilitate this review. No monetary compensation has been received and all thoughts are my own.

One food staple that we have to always keep on hand is sugar. I like to bake sweets and there are certain drinks and cereals I must have sugar for. When I drink hot tea or coffee, I have to have sugar. C&H now has some neat and handy sugar containers that you might want to add to your kitchen.

C&H Flip Top Sugars

You can now get C&H in easy-to-use dispensers. The NEW C&H Flip Top Sugars are available in two different varieties including:

  • Pourable Brown Sugar – This free-flowing sugar prevents clumps and hardening, and is ideal for sprinkling over fruit, oatmeal and cereal.
  • Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar – With finer crystals than traditional granulated, Quick Dissolve Superfine Sugar rapidly dissolves in hot and cold drinks, adding a perfect touch of sweetness to beverages such as coffee (hot or iced) and iced tea.

C&H Flip Top Sugars

Since we drink a ton of coffee at my house, these new containers go well next to the Keurig. I really like the Pure Can Sugar because it has finer crystals than regular granulated sugar that allows it to blend easier when I add it to my beverages. It also goes well when you sprinkle it on danishes or sweat bread after it comes out of the oven.

Don’t get me wrong, I am still going to buy my 10 pound bag of C&H granulated sugar each month but I am going to be keeping one of these containers next to my coffee pot too!

Most coffee makers use a drip system that can compact the coffee grounds and bring out too much of the bitterness of the beans. In contrast, the iCoffee by Remington machine steams the grounds, before using hot water jets to stir the grounds, extracting the maximum amount of great flavor.

The iCoffee Brewer can be found at many major retailers and retails for $170. One lucky winner will be taking home their own iCoffee maker! To enter, simply use the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway will end on March 10, 2014. Good luck!
