What are Deviled Eggs?
Deviled eggs are a classic dish made by hard-boiling eggs and then filling the egg whites with a mixture of egg yolks, mayonnaise, and spices. The filling is typically piped back into the egg whites and garnished with paprika or other seasonings.
Why Avocado Deviled Eggs?
While traditional deviled eggs are a delicious treat, they can be high in carbs and unhealthy fats. By replacing the mayonnaise with creamy, nutritious avocado, we are able to cut down on the unhealthy ingredients while still maintaining a rich, flavorful taste.
- 6 large eggs
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- Paprika for garnish
- Place the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover with cold water.
- Turn the heat to high and bring the water to a boil. Once the water has reached a boil, remove the saucepan from heat and let the eggs sit in the hot water for 12 minutes.
- While the eggs are cooking, cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
- Add the lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to the avocado and mix well.
- Once the eggs are finished cooking, drain the water and transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice water to cool.
- Once the eggs are cool, peel the shells off and slice each egg in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks and place them in a separate bowl.
- Mash the egg yolks with a fork and then add them to the avocado mixture. Mix well.
- Spoon the avocado-egg yolk mixture back into the egg whites. Sprinkle with paprika for garnish.
- Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
