Creamy avocado filling make these Avocado Deviled Eggs irresistible! I love to top these with crispy bacon, fresh cracked pepper and a pinch of salt to round off the flavors.

Most mornings I’m scrambling around trying to drink my coffee and get my soon to be three-year old son ready for daycare. By the way I didn’t fully heed the advice of my parent friends when they said “Oh you thought two was tough, just wait”. Mmmmm yeah I’m living it but wouldn’t trade it for the world. Who doesn’t enjoy a good power struggle first thing in the morning! So, needless to say I love how simple and quick this recipe whips up. Definitely a win when mom gets to eat breakfast!
It all starts with a boiled egg.
When boiling the eggs if you’ve ever noticed a slight green ring around the yolk, that means the eggs are overcooked. Let me give you a little advice…
Here’s a quick step-by-step on how to get the perfect boiled egg:
- Place your eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch
- Bring to a boil over medium/high heat, then cover, move to the side and let sit for 8-10 minutes (I typically remove at the 8 minute mark).
- Drain and put eggs in an ice water bowl (this stops the cooking process)
- Let sit in ice water about 5 minutes then crack and peel.
I love to top these Avocado Deviled Eggs with bacon. The bacon adds that “wow factor” and let’s be honest most of us eat with our eyes first. Did I forget to mention – bacon is delicious! Of course you can omit the bacon if desired (I can’t believe I just said that). Look at that bacon! Mmmmm BACON!
I prep for this recipe on Sunday by boiling a bunch of eggs and getting my bacon cooked for the week. That cut’s the active prep time down significantly and you have everything needed to whip these Avocado Deviled Eggs together in less than 10 minutes. You’ll be so happy come Monday morning so definitely do your prep on Sunday, or any day that works for you!
What If You Don’t Have A Ripe Avocado?
The day we shot this video I was struggling to find a good, ripe avocado. I had a Wholly Guacamole Mini kicking around in the fridge so decided sure, this will work. It was still just as delicious as using a fresh, ripe avocado but I would suggest if you have a ripe avocado ready, use it. I always keep some of the Wholly Guacamole packs on hand now, plus they make a great snack and my son loves them! Adding a tablespoon or so of mayonnaise makes the filling a bit more creamy and helps stack up your fat macros. If you don’t like mayo or want to trim the macro’s a bit you can omit. I would add a bit more avocado to give it better consistency.
You can always add a drizzle of lime juice, some fresh cilantro to take it up a notch and don’t forget a sprinkle of salt and fresh cracked pepper.
These Avocado Deviled Eggs make for a perfect appetizer. Bring a batch to your next get together and I promise you won’t even notice the chips and dip.
