Avocado Deviled Eggs with Bacon
Oh the incredible edible egg. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
This is one of my absolute favorite appetizers for a variety of reasons:
a) they are incredibly easy to make
ii) bacon makes everything better
3) these are a great protein snack that are sure to be a hit at any party
IV) did I mention there’s bacon?
Make 24 pieces
12 eggs, hard-boiled and peeled
2 ripe avocados
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon mustard (optional)
6 pieces of bacon
Cook bacon in a pan on medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towel and set aside. Cut each hard boiled egg in half and carefully remove the yolks.
In a mixing bowl, mash 6 full yolks with the avocado, garlic, olive oil, paprika, lemon juice and mustard. I don’t use all of the yolks because the avocado will make it rich enough. It should be a creamy consistency after you fully mix the ingredients. Take your cooled bacon and finely chop into small pieces and add to mixture. Stir together.
Spoon each egg half with mixture. Sprinkle paprika on each egg and voila! You have your Bacon Devil Inside.
