As part of our Easter brunch series we thought it would be only fitting to showcase a new recipe. We love brunch and hope this series is helping you find inspiration for Easter or any other brunch. Plus, this one just so happens to be green for St. Patrick’s Day! You can also try some of our other recipes from our brunch series like fresh mimosas or crostinis and toasts for more ideas, and stay tuned for our post about our overall Easter brunch!
Everyone knows someone who makes the best devilled eggs for parties, but with all of that mayonnaise we feel they’re more like a once a year kind of treat. With a buffet table full of other options sometimes devilled eggs get looked over. Why not put a twist on a classic and hop on the avocado train! We tried out a new recipe that uses avocado instead of mayo and boy were the results delicious. Now we can enjoy devilled eggs as a healthy snack all year long. Think of all the healthy fats and omega 3’s you will get from this clean bit sized snack. They’re a great addition for any buffet table, packed lunch, or girls’ day.
Not only are these devilled eggs delicious and nutritious but they are SO quick and easy to make. If you are in a pinch and don’t know what to bring to a party or need a snack quick on the weekend this is a great healthy option. Plus they look beautiful if you pipe the filling just right and use a fun garnish. This recipe is sure to impress!
The eggs we used were free range local eggs which we feel is important to try and buy if you have access to them. We had decorated some of the eggs earlier and there were some that didn’t make the cut so it was easy to just peel the shell off and incorporate them into the recipe, so we strongly suggest if you’ve decorated Easter eggs that this is a great way to make use of them!
- 6 eggs
- 2 whole avocados
- salt and pepper
- Boil your eggs for 12 minutes and then let them cool
- Once cool peel off the shells and cut the eggs in half
- Remove the yolks and put them in a separate bowl
- Add your avocados and mash them together with your yolks and some salt and pepper
- Put the mixture into a piping bag and squeeze some in each egg white where the yolk had been
- Sprinkle with some paprika and garnish with a parsley leaf and voila!
