Avocado Deviled Eggs

I have never made deviled eggs to take to a party or pot luck and had to bring left overs home.  In fact, they are usually one of the first things eaten.  Here is a simple appetizer with a little green eggs twist to it.  

6 boiled eggs
1 avocado
3 tbs. mayo
1 tsp. lemon or lime juice
Salt and pepper

I put my eggs into cold water and turn on high.  When the water begins to boil, I turn down the heat to medium and set the timer for 10 minutes of boil time.  I immediately put under cold water and crack the eggs while they are still hot and then let them set for a short time.  They peel easily for me then.  Cut in half and pop the egg yolks out in a bowl.

Cut your avocado in half and deseed it.  Use a spoon to scoop out the meat of the avocado and mash it adding a tsp. of lemon or lime juice so it does not turn brown.

Mix avocado with your egg yolks and mash until there are little or no lumps.  Add the mayo, a pinch of onion powder and a pinch of salt and pepper.  Put back in the egg whites.  Top with a shake of paprika.

Variation – You know what would make this even better?  Add a small piece of bacon on top of it.  Oh yah, that’s the ticket.

How about a small shrimp on top and a cube of ham for green eggs and ham.  

We are getting some more of the white stuff so I'm in for the day with Saylor.  We made gluten free meatballs last night in barbecue sauce and today we are making football gluten free and dairy free football cookies.  We love playing in the kitchen. Hope you have fun playing in the kitchen.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
