Avocado – Devilled Eggs
Do you like Avocados? Devilled Eggs? Why not mix the two together for a delicious snack. Turns out, Avocados are pretty good for you. They have all these vitamins and minerals in them, tons of good fats, and really they just reap health benefits – Google it. So what’s the problem? They kinda taste like, “what is it that I am eating?” They’re not horrible, but you definitely need to add some thing to an avocado to enjoy it – in our opinion anyways. We also love eggs and so when we came across this recipe on Pinterest that paired avocado’s with eggs, also known as “Angel Eggs”, we had to try it out! And they were absolutely delicious! We’d highly recommend giving them a try if you like eggs and also happen to be looking for a way to eat avocados. They are also super simple to make. Enjoy!
Ingredients you will need:
- 1 Large Avocado
- 12 Hardboiled Eggs
- ¼ Cup of Mayonnaise
- 1 Tbsp. of Mustard
- 1 Tbsp. of Chilli powder
- 1 Tbsp. of ground cumin
- 1 Tbsp. of Cayenne Pepper
- 1 Tbsp. of Salt
- 1 Green Onion (finely chopped)
Step One: Cook the eggs – however you get them hardboiled, do it. I prefer Martha’s method for perfectly cooked hardboiled eggs, every time;
“Place them in a deep saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover, remove from heat, and let stand 13 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer eggs to an ice-water bath to stop the cooking.”
See the full post here.
Once the eggs are cooked (and cooled!), shell them and then cut them in half length-wise. Scoop out the yolks and add them to a bowl for the mixing.
Step Two: The other stuff. Cut the avocado in half. Scoop out the yummy avocado stuff and throw away the the pit or save it and try something crazy from Pinterest. Add the avocado stuff to the same bowl that you did the eggs. Then add the mayonnaise, mustard, chilli powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and of course, the onion.
Mix all the ingredients together real good and then add some lime or lemon juice – just a squirt!
Step Three: Scoop the mixture into the empty egg halves – or be fancy and swirl it in from the corner of a ziplock bag – and then chill them and then eat them whenever you feel like it! Add some bacon bits or dill for garnish, if you fancy.
