Confetti eggs

Getting ready for New Years. Last week I bought a box of 90 eggs. We have half a dozen remaining. I boiled a dozen for easy snacks. And whipped up this party on a plate. Peel the eggs, slice in half with a wet knife. Tip the yolks into a bowl. Add a heaping T of nice prepared mustard and mayo, each. Mash with a fork or a pastry blender. I fried a couple slices of bacon while peeling the eggs and crumbled the bacon after cooling it. I added a little cayenne pepper and some salt to the yolk mix. I was going to add the bacon crumbles into the yolks, but decided to use a pastry funnel to make the eggs look decorative. The bacon would have clogged the tip of the funnel. As it was, I had to work through a couple chunks of yolk before I got a nice ribbon.

The menfolk cheered.
