Since Easter Sunday was two days ago, naturally I have a deviled egg recipe for you today.  If you are a mother or grandmother you are currently staring at one dozen hard boiled eggs in your fridge.  Correct?

But first, let's talk Spring Break.

I'd like to know who invented it.  Growing up we got Good Friday and the Monday after Easter off from school.  That was it.  None of this whole week stuff.  Well, since we've been in this school district the kids get the WHOLE WEEK OFF.  Which is all fine and good for those families who take a long vacation or for families whose parents just continue working and sending their kids to daycare, but y'all it's a nightmare for stay-at-home-working-moms.

A nightmare.

By day 3 my son declared it was the "worst Spring Break of his life".  He's only had three, but whose counting?  

I tired, really hard, I did.  I made a point each and every day to get everyone out of the house {the weather was NOT warm by the way}.  We went out to lunch one day, breakfast the next, a play date in between, errands here there and everywhere, I tried my darnest to keep them busy.

Let's just say it didn't work.  The fighting was endless, they couldn't keep their hands off each other, there was soooooooooo much complaining.

Oh, and did I mention the husband was gone for work for 4 days?

It was a blast.

To cure some of my Mom woos from last week, I did make a few things in the kitchen.  I mean, the kids did have to eat.  I couldn't let them starve, dispite their behavior.

Since I've being making hard boiled eggs in my Instant Pot a lot lately, I figured the time wasn't better to embark on a new deviled egg recipe just in time for Easter, right?

And because I love all things dill pickle and bacon, I added those two ingredients to my general recipe.  They turned out heavenly!  I made them the night the husband was returning home from his work trip...because I wanted it to appear that my week wasn't horrible.

It kinda worked.  I may have vented a bit to him, but in the end the eggs won.

I've given you directions for making these eggs in both the Instant Pot and on the stove top.  Really, honestly, making hard boiled eggs aren't that difficult if you know the correct way to do it.

In my Instant Pot, it's super easy and in about 10 minutes they are finished {just 6 minutes of actual cooking time}.  On the stove top I have always used Martha Stewart's trusting recipe as she is the queen of all things kitchen right behind the beloved Julia Child.  

You can do this!
