Sometimes you don’t have a lot of time to make something that looks fancy. Especially when you need to bring food to a party. This is one of my favourite go to’s when I’m low on inspiration. Deviled eggs!
I decided to give the traditional recipe a bit of a twist by adding some avocado. Begin by boiling a dozen eggs. You want to get them to a point that they are just hard boiled but not overdone. I find that if you boil them for about 9-10 minutes, you get the perfect boiled egg.
Cool the eggs in ice water for at least 5 minutes. Clearly, I did not leave mine to cool enough. If you cool it in cold water, it helps peel the egg and the egg shell tends not to stick to the egg. I’ve also heard that putting baking soda in the water while cooking also does the same thing but I have not tried it. Mostly because I forget that step until its too late.
Carefully cut each egg in half and scoop out the yolk. The yolk should easily pop out. To the yolk add 1/4 cup ripe avocado, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/4 cup mayo, and a dash of salt and pepper. I recently discovered frozen avocado and it is wonderful!! Always a perfect ripeness and you can use as little or as much as you want.
Blend everything thing together and taste. Adjust any favouring by adding more of something.
Next is the fun part!! Place the egg yolk mixture in a bag and cut the tip. This acts like a piping bag. Pipe the yolk mixture into the white egg halves. Sprinkle a bit of paprika on the eggs and serve!!
This is an easy and delicious dish! Enjoy
