Avocado Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs



Deviled eggs are always a hit at every party right?

In our group of family/friends they are always a must at every event.

They are just so damn good!

I can eat a platter all on my lonesome without blinking an eye.

Over the weekend we had a family BBQ for Memorial Day/Nephew's 3rd bday... I was in charge of bringing bean dip... I did THIS Hub's Dip.

Because I felt like that wasn't enough I decided to whip up some deviled eggs as well.... but then I hit a road block...

I had not mayo.

What to do?

Well check out this awesome recipe and you'll see....



Avocado Bacon Ranch Deviled Eggs
Recipe yields 1 1/2 dozen deviled eggs

Ingredients:

9 hard boiled eggs
1 1/2 avocados peeled and pitted
2 tbs of ranch dressing (homemade or store bought)
1 tbs of sour cream (I used light)
2-3 scallions chopped
The juice of one lime 
Pinch of salt
4 slices of cooked extra crispy bacon

Directions:

Peal and slice eggs length wise.

Remove yolks and place in them in the bowl of your food processor.

Set egg whites aside.

Add your remaining ingredients except the bacon... set that aside.


Pulse the filling until it is smooth add more ranch dressing or sour cream if it is too dry.


Pipe filling into egg whites and top with bacon crumbles.

  14. Great idea! Does the avocado discolour/darken if the eggs are sitting for a while?

    1. Don, the added lime juice holds the browning off a bit. Though they will brown eventually. I would not make these ahead of time, no more than 2 hours before you are set to eat.

  15. Yep - these are going on the top of my pile of recipes to make - stat! And as luck would have it I have THREE POUNDS of applewood smoked bacon in my fridge - I know you are probably jealous! :D

  22. This might be a dumb question but can I make these the night before and serve them at lunch the next day?

    1. No the avocado will brown if it goes that long. I would recommend doing perhaps the morning of the lunch.
