This is a recipe from the archives. It's summer, we passed right over spring this year. In the 90's here today. We all know you have to have deviled eggs in the summer and for all cookouts. Right!
Deviled eggs, spring, Easter and summer cookouts just seem to go together. I love plain old deviled eggs but sometimes you just need to improve on them a little for really special occasions. This is a favorite. It also works great with salmon or crab meat.
Pray for leftovers, or make extra, and chop them up for a fabulous sandwich.

6 hard boiled eggs, please tell me you know how to boil eggs

1/2 cup diced cooked shrimp, canned is okay if rinsed and well drained
Black olives for garnish
Cut egg in half lengthwise. Scoop out yolks and blend with mayonnaise. Stir in lemon juice, bacon pieces and shrimp. Fill egg whites with mounds of mixture. Garnish with olive slices. Chill. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
