- 6 large eggs
- 2 strips bacon (1 1/2 oz. total), coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Hot sauce
- Parsley leaves for garnish
- 1. Put eggs in a 3- to 4-qt. pan and add enough cold water to cover by 1 in. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat so bubbles break surface only occasionally. Cook 15 minutes. Drain eggs, cover with cold water, and let stand until cool, about 10 minutes.
- 2. Meanwhile, in an 8- to 10-in. frying pan over medium-high heat, stir bacon until crisp and brown, about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to towels to drain. Crumble when cool. Reserve 1 tbsp. bacon fat from pan.
- 3. Shell eggs and cut in half lengthwise. Put yolks in a small bowl and mash with a fork, blending in reserved bacon fat, sour cream, and mustard. Add hot sauce and salt to taste.
- 4. Divide yolk mixture among egg whites. Top with bacon and parsley leaves just before serving.
