Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs

My little devil doesn’t do hard boiled yolks no matter how deviously delicious we make them. But alas, sometimes from egg trials come egg triumph and this one is an eggs-ceptionally tasty eggs-ample. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!)

My kid is a master piper but couldn’t be trusted with the bacon bits. Good thing we made extra because more went into his mouth than onto the avocado. The only problem with these eggs is that I can’t decide whether to have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner? Also, they somehow seem so posh that I want to display them as an appetizer at a fancy gathering! Now for the recipe…

Bacon Avocado ‘Deviled’ Eggs

Prep Time: 10 minsĀ  Cooking Time: 15 mins

Ingredients:
6 hard boiled eggs
2 ripe avocados
1/2 lemon
2 to 3 slices bacon (we used turkey bacon)
salt & fresh cracked pepper

Cook turkey bacon and set aside to cool. (We cook the turkey bacon in the toaster oven on a tray at 375 degrees for 10 mins or until crispy.) Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine flesh of avocado with 1/2 lemon and salt and pepper to taste. Transfer avocado mixture to a small baggie, seal and use a scissor to cut off one corner of the bag. SliceĀ  hard boiled eggs in half and carefully remove yolks. Rinse off to remove excess yolk and pat dry. Use baggie to pipe avocado into each egg cavity and crumble bits of bacon atop avocado. Makes 12 ‘deviled’ eggs.

    You can save the yolks to make extra creamy classic deviled eggs.
