List of Ingredients
◦ 12 large eggs
◦ 3 slices bacon
◦ 2 tablespoons melted butter (if needed)
◦ ⅓ cup mayonnaise
◦ 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
◦ 1 heaping tablespoon chopped scallions, plus more scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
◦ Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place eggs in a large saucepan; add water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, cover, and remove from heat. Let sit for 10 minutes. Drain. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and let cool completely, about 10 minutes; peel. Halve lengthwise and remove yolks.
Coarsely chop bacon. Cook in a medium skillet over medium heat until browned and crisp. Transfer bacon to paper towels. Strain drippings through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl. Add melted butter if needed to measure 2 tablespoons.
Finely mash reserved yolks, bacon fat (and/or butter), mayonnaise, mustard, and chopped scallions in a medium bowl; season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer to a large resealable freezer bag, then cut ˝ inch off one corner. Pipe into whites; garnish with thinly sliced scallions and reserved bacon.
