Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs

St. Patrick’s Day is over and now in just a couple of weeks, Easter will be here! It always throws me off when Easter falls earlier in the year. But, Maddie and I have been having fun making Target trips to raid the Easter section for fun activities and candy, and all of that good stuff!

Do you guys color eggs each year? Of course we do and even though I love throwing hard boiled eggs on salads and things, I can never seem to eat all of the eggs we dye and I end up throwing too many away each year. I don’t think that is going to happen this year though because I made these bacon avocado deviled eggs a couple of weeks ago and I have a new plan to use up all of those eggs!

What’s not to love about these? The classic deviled egg is whipped up with dreamy and creamy avocado and then I topped them with crispy crumbled bacon. Gah! It’s so easy, but the avocado and bacon just give them that little something extra that makes them more addicting! Be sure not to skip the lime juice in these, it doesn’t alter the flavor, but will help keep the avocado from browning. I’m loving these little guys for Easter and pretty much every kind of party, especially showers!

Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • salt to taste
  • 3 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Directions:

  1. Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan and cover with water. Cover and heat on high until the water begins to boil. Let boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and leave covered for 15 minutes. Rinse under cold water to stop the eggs from cooking further.
  2. Gently crack the shells and peel each egg (I like to peel them under cool running water). Slice each egg in half with a serrated knife. Carefully scoop the yolks into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the avocado, mayo, and lime juice to the bowl with the yolks. Mix together with a fork or with a hand mixer until smooth. Add salt to taste. Spoon heaping teaspoons of the mixture back into each egg white (I use a small cookie scoop to do this). Sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top of each egg.  Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.
