I grew up on an avocado ranch, so I'm pretty picky about guacamole. This is our favorite recipe because of the lime juice and the mayo. The mayo makes the dip creamy and flavorful plus it lasts longer before turning dark. I use Best Foods/Hellmans mayonnaise.
A great appetizer for the holidays, Valentine's Day, or even a brunch! You're sure to impress with this simple, delicious recipe. It's important to use mini muffin tins, otherwise they won't be bite sized! You can also sub with phyllo dough cups instead of puff pastry. This is my version of a Sara Moulton winner! Enjoy!
These have been a favorite for years, when I serve these at my get togethers or make them for socials and large events they are always the first to go and everyone wants the recipe, I suggest to use large, extra large or even jumbo eggs for this, I like to make the yolk filling a day ahead and refrigerate this will blend the flavors --- for a nice presentation place each egg half in a colored paper muffin liner --- all ingredient amounts may be adjusted to taste --- see my recipe#259573
If I get asked for this recipe one more time, I will scream - just kidding! This is a great do-ahead appetizer. A good recipe to have for your summer garden abundance (and parties!). Only 145 days til July!
These are so addictive! I gave this recipe to some folks who now make 2 batches a week!
This was given to me by Joyce, a co-worker.
Note : Please use the large pretzels broken into pieces, these absorb the oil and flavor better then nuggets, or small twists. added: 10/29/08
