Cut hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in a small mixing bowl.
Mash yolks with a fork until they resemble a sandy texture. Add 1 slice crumbled bacon (reserve remaining slice for garnish), cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, tablespoon of chives, lemon juice; stir until well combined. Season to taste.
Spoon or pipe yolk mixture into the cavity of each egg white. Sprinkle with remaining crumbled bacon and chives for garnish. Chill for 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld.
If serving eggs on a flat platter or plate, slice a small slice off the bottom of each egg white before filling so the deviled eggs sit flat.
How to Fill Eggs
For easy filling, pipe the egg yolk mixture into the cavity of each egg white half. Disposable piping bags fitted with a large piping tip work well. If you don't have a piping bag on hand, cut the bottom corner of a zip-top plastic baggie, fill the baggie with yolk mixture, seal, and pipe through the cut corner.
Deviled eggs may be prepared in advance and refrigerated, covered with plastic wrap, for up to two days before serving.
