I found this recipe several years ago in our local newspaper. This is a different kind of deviled egg. The creamy avocado replaces the mayo. I have subbed lime juice for the lemon. The flavor is best when only slightly chilled or at room temp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the eggs for three minutes.
  2. Peel and slice each egg in half lengthways.
  3. Remove egg yolks and place the egg white halves on a serving platter.
  4. Mash avocados and egg yolks together.
  5. Fold in minced onions, lemon juice and salt.
  6. Spoon mixture into the egg whites.
  7. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and diced olives.

Do NOT use 3 minute cooked eggs, hardboil as usual. Seriously!

I love avocados and this was so good. I did agree with other reviewers about the bland flavor so I added some diced green chilies, diced fresh tomato and used the green olives. My oh my, this was good! I also sprinkled a tiny bit of grated pepper jack cheese on top as a garnish. YUM. I served these at our Family St. Patrick Day Brunch. They all loved them! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Very tasty! Even my husband, who doesn't like eggs much, loved these. I used dried minced onions, which gave the filling a nice crunch. I also added a little hot sauce, a little garlic, and a little ranch dressing for a creamy zing.
