Avocado Deviled Eggs

Happy Easter!

One of my favorite memories of Easter is the year my mom found a giant, inflatable Easter bunny in our yard. She had gotten up, as usual, and was getting her cup of morning coffee. She looked out in the backyard and in her morning haze, was completely freaked out to see this giant, pastel-colored inflatable bunny just standing in the backyard. After a few seconds to process, she could only assume that the bunny came from our neighbor who loved pranks.

My mom loves telling that story. It was probably one of those that you had to be there, but knowing her and knowing him — it was funny.

Every year, we dye eggs and head to church for an Easter brunch. Historically, Easter has always been spent at my parents’ home and growing up, we always had Easter egg hunts — mostly in the house. And every year, I have been the lucky recipient of a package of Peeps — my guilty pleasure available this time of year and this time of year only. I know there are strong opinions on Peeps, but I love those things!

My mom always serves deviled eggs around this time of year — often with our leftover Easter eggs.

Seems fitting, right? Of course.

I had boiled eggs and I had avocado. I had my heart set on hummus-stuffed eggs, but those will have to wait for next year. This year…it’s all about the avocado. Other than my dad requesting a pinch of additional salt, these were a hit. I’m not a huge, huge fan of deviled eggs, but I enjoy them from time-to-time and certainly this time of year.

Let me just say that if and when I am to enjoy deviled eggs, avocado-stuffed deviled eggs are the way to go. I’m a fan of that pretty green filling, in addition to the healthy fats and creaminess that comes along with the avocado. The cilantro adds flavor while the red onion adds flavor and a bit of texture. No doubt, a keeper recipe!

  1. Love your bunny story and the recipe looks great …. Happy Easter!

  2. Happy Easter to you and your family Nicole!! I’ve pinned this to make in the future – love the addition of avocado!

  3. Yum! I made guacamole deviled eggs for my friend’s Easter brunch. I kind of think I would like the simpler version with just avocado though.

  4. Yum, those look delicious! I’m going to have to make them for guests sometime. Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I wondered about using avocado instead of mayo so I looked and found your recipe! Glad to know it tastes great. I will still probably use pickle juice, a little raspberry honey mustard, and chives from my recipe instead of your other ingredients but I appreciate the info on alternative recipes!
