14 large hard-boiled eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 ½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/3 cup cooked bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup (1 ounce) sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
Cut the eggs lengthwise in half. Remove the yolks to a medium bowl. Set 24 of the white halves on a plate. Finely chop the remaining four white halves and set aside.
Mash the yolks with a fork. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, lemon juice and pepper. Mix well until smooth. Add the chopped egg whites, bacon, cheese and chives. Mix well.
Spoon the yolk mixture evenly among each egg-white half. Refrigerate, covered, to blend flavors. Sprinkle with paprika just before serving, if desired.
