Ingredients:
12 large eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp honey mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
4 sliced bacon, crisp cooked and crumbled
2 Tbsp shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 green onion, finely chopped, divided 

Directions:
1. To hard boil eggs, place whole eggs in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring pot to a boil. Remove pot from heat and cover with a lid. Let eggs stand for about 12 minutes. Drain and then place in a ice water bath – cool completely. Peel off shell.
2. Half eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Set whites aside.
3. Place yolks in a small bowl and mash well with a fork. Stir in mayonnaise, honey mustard, salt and pepper. Fold in crumbled bacon, cheese and half of the green onions.
4. Put egg yolk mixture in a zip-top bag. Cut a small hole in the bottom corner of the bag. Pipe the yolk mixture into the egg white halves. Garnish with remaining green onions and additional bacon, if desired
