This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "candied". I have made candied bacon before but never like this but my ways have now been changed.
Start by making the candied bacon. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Mix the brown sugar, rice vinegar, agave nectar, and black pepper in a small bowl.
Place the bacon slices on cooling rack over a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes.
Flip the bacon slices and bake another 5 minutes.
Remove the bacon and brush both sides with the brown sugar mixture. Return to the oven and bake another 5 minutes.
Repeat the process every 5 minutes until the bacon is crisp as you like. I ended doing it 3 times for a total of 15 minutes.
Now make the deviled eggs. In a mug or bowl, microwave the sugar and water until the sugar is dissolved (1 - 2 minutes).
Place the sliced jalapeno in the sugar water and set aside.
Halve the eggs long ways, scoop out the yolks, place the yolk in a food processor, and put the egg whites on a serving tray.
Add the cream cheese, miracle whip, sriracha, and mustard to the food processor.
Process until a smooth paste. While the processor is running, slowly add the rice vinegar until the mixture is nice and smooth.
Scoop the yolk mixture back into the egg whites.
Chop up the candied bacon to your liking and add to the top of the egg whites.
Top each egg with a slice of the reserved jalapenos.
Garnish with paprika.
