Who doesn't love deviled eggs? I mean, really. However, with a large slab of mayo plopped in the mixing bowl in the traditional recipe, I'm more inclined to keep my distance. But there's hope! With all of 4 main ingredients, you can be sure that this one is making it into my go-to list for parties and pot-lucks. It can't get much easier than this:
- Hard-boiled eggs (Here's an entertaining egg timer for you, too)
- Avocados (about 1 per every 6 eggs)
- ~1 T Lemon Juice
- A dash of paprika
- Some salt n' peppa[/box]
Peel the hard boiled eggs, and slice each one lengthwise. Pop out the yolks and put in a bowl for later use.
Add in the avocado (I usually just taste the ratio of yolks to avocado until it's at a flavor I like), and stir with a fork until mostly smooth.
Mix in the lemon juice (again, 1 Tablespoon, or just to taste) and some salt n peppa.
Spoon the yolk/avocado/lemon juice mixture into each egg. Feel free to go Jackson Pollock and let the mixture lay as it falls. Or feel free to get out a plastic bag, slice the corner, and squeeze the mixture into perfectly formed deviled towers of goodness, that would make even Martha jealous.
Sprinkle the paprika on top, again a la Jackson Pollock.
Savor each bite... mmmm.
