Creamy Avocado Deviled Eggs

There are two things I love more than life itself… Avocado Deviled Eggs and Deviled Eggs with Bacon. Put them together you you get some of the best deviled eggs around!

Easter is right around the corner; it’s time to start thinking about all the deviled eggs you’ll be making this year.

Well-made deviled eggs are a thing of beauty.

I often make my classic deviled egg recipe and jazz it up with interesting toppings. But sometimes I like to take the yolk filling and doctor that as well.

Today’s recipe is a culmination of my two favorite deviled egg variations…  classic deviled egg with bacon on top, and avocado deviled eggs.

Mixing ripe avocado into the  yolk not only eliminates the need for mayo, it offers a light freshness that traditional deviled eggs lack.

I also added a little lime juice and a touch of asian chile garlic sauce to kick up the flavor. The tang and spice make these deviled eggs with bacon utterly irresistible, with a little punch of salty pork fat on top to offset the fresh filling.

Heavenly.

I like to top some of the eggs with crumbled bacon and some with pomegranate arils for contrast. The bit of fruity sweetness is an unexpected surprise everyone will love.

So this year I challenge you to break out of your deviled egg comfort zone and try something new. You won’t be sorry!

Avocado Deviled Eggs with Bacon

Ingredients:

  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 Tb. lime juice
  • 1 Tb. chile garlic sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Garnishes: 1/4 cup crumbled bacon and 1/4 cup pomegranate arils

Directions:

  1. Place the eggs in a large pot and fill with cold water until it covers the eggs by 1 inch. Put the pot on the stovetop over high heat and bring to a boil. The moment the water starts boiling, set the timer for 12 minutes. At exactly 12 minutes remove the pot from the heat, set it in the sink, and run cold water into the pot until it remains cold. Then add ice to the pot to chill the eggs all the way through. If you have time, put the eggs in the fridge for a few hours to chill--cold eggs peel easier than warm eggs.
  2. Tap the hard boiled eggs on the counter and roll gently to crack the shell all the way around. Peel the egg shells off. If you're having trouble, run them under cold water as you peel. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise and pop the egg yolks into the bowl of your food processor. Lay the white on a platter.
  3. Now spoon the avocado flesh into the food processor, followed by the lime juice, chile garlic sauce, and salt. Puree until completely smooth. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag with a medium tip (or into a zip bag then snip the corner off) and pipe the filling into the center of each egg. You should have plenty of filling to create nice tall mounds.
  4. Top each avocado deviled egg with crumbled bacon or pomegranate arils. Loosely wrap and chill until ready to serve. Can be made up to 4 days ahead.

    This is a great way to spice up a classic deviled egg recipe! And I love that it’s a bit healthier without all that mayo. This is a fantastic idea, and the contrasting colors are gorgeous!
