  1. Peel 4 hard boiled eggs* and slice them in half.
  2. Chop 4 strips of bacon and cook them until crispy and brown. Set a few nice chunks aside to use as garnish, and keep the remaining bacon with the bacon drippings for your egg mixture.
  3.  Gently scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Mash up the yolks.
  4. Add the mayo, mustard and bacon pieces with the bacon drippings then mash a little more. Add the vinegar, some salt and pepper and stir to incorporate.
