Deviled eggs have a bad wrap for being the least-liked appetizer- if anything, a few adults will pick at it. They are also pretty unhealthy for you, as many of the original recipes are whipped up with mayo!
These deviled eggs, however, are filled with avocado and will be liked by many! Avocado provides a healthier fat alternative to mayo and will be a crowd favorite because who doesn't love guacamole?! This recipe is full of flavor and the healthy fats will fill you up without weighing you down.
Tip: To save time the day you want to eat/serve them, have your eggs pre-hard boiled and peeled. This is the longest part of the recipe, so once that is done it should only take about 10-15 minutes to prepare the filling!
10 large eggs
1 large avocado
1 tbsp dijon mustard
4 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 lime, juiced
Salt and pepper
Hard boil the eggs. To do this, put the eggs in a pot and add water until the eggs are fully covered. With the pot on the stove at high-heat, bring the water to a boil. When it starts rapidly boiling, turn off the heat and cover the pot for 14 minutes. Once the 14 minutes passes, dump the hot water and fill the pot with ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain the water and store in the fridge for a couple hours before peeling the shell off.
After shelling the eggs, cut them in half and take out the yolk. Put the egg yolks in one bowl and the hollowed out egg whites on a plate.
Now, start making the filling. Add the avocado, mustard, cilantro, squeezed lime juice and salt and pepper to the bowl with the egg yolks. Mash everything together and mix until it is smooth throughout. You don't want a clumpy filling!
With a small spoon, add the guacamole-yolk filling back into the egg whites. The dollop of filling should over-flow the hollowed center by a little.
To garnish, add a little leaf of cilantro on each egg half and sprinkle paprika over the top.
