Guacamole Deviled Eggs for #SundaySupper

I don’t know about you, but I truly love recipes that involve only a few ingredients. Just because they aren’t complicated with an endless list of components does not mean they are any less amazing. Sometimes the best dishes (to me) are the simple ones.

Today the Sunday Supper crew is definitely embracing that concept. All of the recipes in today’s round up include FIVE ingredients or less! Who doesn’t want to take advantage of that amazingness?

I have a secret to share: I have never liked deviled eggs very much. I would eat one or two every once in a while when they were served at holidays, but the filling was never a favorite component of mine. It probably isn’t a surprising realization: I’m not a fan of mayonnaise. But what if there was no mayo involved in the recipe? And it involves avocado…one of the loves of my life? I’m on board with that concept, 100%.

I’ve perused variations of guacamole deviled eggs on various sites, so I did draw some inspiration from what I’ve seen in the past. However, when it came to whipping up my own batch, I gathered my ingredients and tasted as I went along to determine the ratio that worked for me. What resulted was an awesome guacamole style filling…that made me LOVE deviled eggs.

Now – you have to make the filling for the eggs right before serving…since you’re dealing with avocado, you don’t want the mixture to oxidize and turn brown. Luckily, the mixture is quick and easy to create, so you shouldn’t have any problems! The only problem I had was that I didn’t have enough of the eggs – they were gone from the platter in the blink of an eye! I know I will be making these eggs again, and that is a HUGE statement…coming from this deviled egg disbeliever!

Have you tried any non-traditional variations on deviled eggs?

Author:
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 12 hard boiled eggs
  • 3 Hass avocados
  • Juice from about ¾ a lime (a whole lime if it isn't super juicy or if it is small in size)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Green onion, diced for garnish
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Prepare hard boiled eggs and allow them to cool. Remove shells from the eggs by gently tapping the two ends on the counter to release the pressure in the shell, then run the egg under cold water as you peel.
  2. Slice eggs in half lengthwise, then scoop out the yolks. Set 4 of them aside for the filling. Arrange the whites of the eggs on a platter, with the yolk "wells" facing upward.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash together the avocado, the 4 reserved egg yolks, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Mix until smooth.
  4. Use a spatula to scoop the filling mixture into a quart sized plastic zipper bag. Carefully snip a small corner off of the bottom of the bag, then twist the top to push the filling down toward the opening (like a frosting bag). Pipe the filling into the wells of the egg whites. Garnish with diced green onion and a cilantro leaf. Serve, and enjoy!

 

***Note: I happened to have some beautiful ripe cherry tomatoes from our garden, and I added a small round slice to the top of each deviled egg. It was a nice addition of color, but not required!
