Bacon Wrapped Easter Eggs (aka Pig Eggs)

I love bacon and have been amusing my Sat students with my bacon wrapped appetizers. This one for Easter joins my list of super easy ones to make. I took quails eggs I found in Ranch 99 (an Asian grocery store chain) and hard boiled them. I shelled the mini eggs and placed them in some food coloring overnight. I added a bacon wrap to them and cooked them in a hot 500F oven until the bacon was crispy. Serve with your favorite sweet spicy barbecue sauce. Enjoy!

If you like this recipe, I have many more including my virally popular pineapple mozzarella rings. I’ve been adding more bacon wrapped madness to my recipe database: Doinks, mini frittata, turkey lollipop, apple pie, meatloaf, breakfast fatty, buffalo turds, pig candy, and bacon-weave animals.

    Harry, These look, interesting, to say the least. It might be the bright colors.

    I tried searching and couldn’t find it. Have you ever made Pig Shots? Slices of sausage, wrapped in bacon to form little cups, filled with a cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and whatever filling. Smoked or grilled until the bacon firms up. I have put baby shrimp in the filling once, and pulled pork in it another time. Make a great appetizer. I can send a picture if you are interested or you can Google it.

      Thanks Terry.
      I’ve sampled more than my fair share of bacon appetizers.
      The closet thing to a Pig Shot is a Pig Cup which is a fried bacon weave basket filled with pork belly cubes which were braised in a pit until they were meltingly tender.
