BBQ Deviled Ham & Eggs Recipe

Total Time: 1 hour | Makes: 6-12

I love ham and eggs so I adapted that idea for a great tailgate dish. Easy to make, easy to transport and really easy to eat.

  • 6 hard boiled eggs, peeled, halved and yolks removed
  • 1 cup good quality ham - ground (I like honey baked)
  • 7 TBSP celery - small dice - divided
  • 4 TBSP mayonnaise - divided
  • 6 TBSP KC MASTERPIECE BBQ Sauce - divided (I used Original)
  • 4 tsp. prepared horseradish - drained and divided
  • 3 TBSP. pickle relish, drained
  • 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
  • 12 flat parsley leaves or 1-2 TBSP chopped parsley
  1. Eggs:  Place eggs in cold water in large pot.  Bring water to a boil.  Turn off heat, cover and let sit for 18 minutes.  Drain and cover with cold water.  Let sit another 18 minutes,  Drain and peel.
  2. Ham Salad:  In a medium bowl –    Combine the ground ham, 4 TBSP dice celery, pickle relish, 1 TBSP. mayonnaise, 3 TBSP. KC BBQ Sauce, 2 tsp. drained horseradish.  Mix well.  This can be made 1 -2 days ahead
  3. Egg Filling:  In a medium bowl  Mash the egg yolks well, add 3 TBSP. mayonnaise, 3 TBSP. KC BBQ Sauce, 2 tsp. drained horseradish, the salt and pepper.  Combine well.  This can also be made 1-2 days ahead.    If making ahead store the egg white halves on paper towels in a storage container. Refrigerate all components.
  4. Fill the crater of the egg with the egg filling  and level it off.  Top with a generous TBSP. of the ham salad.  Top with a parsley leaf or a little of the chopped parsley.
