Mitch Prensky, chef-owner at Supper in Philadelphia, shared this recipe with us. Hard-boiled egg yolks are mashed with mayonnaise, bacon fat, and thyme, then scooped into the hard-boiled egg whites and topped with crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese, for a breakfast-inspired riff on deviled eggs.

INGREDIENTS
  • 12 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 teaspoons rendered bacon fat (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Hard-boil the eggs; cool, peel, and halve them; and carefully remove the yolks. Reserve the whites.
  2. Combine the egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard, bacon fat (if using), vinegar, and thyme in a medium, nonreactive bowl. Season well with salt and pepper, then mix well until the yolks are broken up and the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
