Avocado Deviled Eggs

Okay, so maybe to some of you this might sound like blasphemy but I totally hate deviled eggs. The regular kind. With the pickles. And the mustard. Those are two things that I can’t stand, but last year for Easters I was put in charge of bringing the deviled eggs to dinner with Jacob’s family. I decided that I would make the traditional ones, because that’s what everyone likes, but I also wanted to find a recipe that I could enjoy as well. Here it is kids. My favorite food- avocado, in deviled eggs! Make a lot- because they are so good everyone will be wanting seconds and thirds.

How to make them:

6 hard boiled eggs
1 medium avocado, diced small
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Cayenne pepper or paprika, to taste
Salt to taste

Slice your hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise and scoop out yolks. Mash yolks and avocado together with a fork, stir in mayo, lemon juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt to taste. Fill your empty egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with cayenne or paprika.

Tip: Prepare these just before serving, because avocados will turn dark, I totally don’t care about that, tastes the same! But you never know with guests…

    Great recipe. Can you tell me more about that tea towel in the picture? Where did you get that? Is it hand-stitched? It’s lovely!

      It was a wedding gift from my mom, it’s from Anthropologie! I totally love it. I don’t know about the stitching, I’m sure it could be though. Maybe that would be a fun DIY?!

    Pickles in a deviled egg? That may be why you hate them. lol I have never heard of them made with pickles. However I just might have to try to avocado version, since it’s the season for avos. :]
