SIMPLE St Pats Avocado Deviled Eggs #stpattys #green #simplepartyfood

Surprise your guests with these fun and colorful twist on classic deviled eggs.

Want to know how we got these eggs green without using food dye?  We used a very ripe avocado and added it to the yolks to create the traditional green for St. Patrick’s Day.  The avocado also creates a creaminess that replaces the mayo typically found in deviled eggs.

The lime juice does double duty as it provides a light and refreshing flavor, but it’s also to help keep the avocado from turning brown.  However, these eggs are best made right before serving as the avocado can turn a darker brown the longer it sits.

To make them look fancy, pipe the filling into the egg use a star tip in a frosting bag or simply snip off a tiny corner of a Ziploc bag.

HOW TO BEST COOK HARD BOILED EGGS:

  1. Carefully place the eggs in a saucepan and add cool water on top
  2. Place the saucepan on the stove and turn on high heat
  3. As soon as the water comes to a boil remove the eggs and cover with a lid
  4. Wait 10-12 minutes and then run the eggs under cool water to stop the cooking process until they are cool to the touch
  5. Peel immediately or put in the fridge for later use
