This recipe for Avocado Deviled Eggs is a zesty, creamy and oh-so-tasty twist on a classic party favorite! Thank you so much to BJ’s Wholesale Club for sponsoring this post.
Something about football season and tailgating screams ALL THE SNACKS to me. Chips and dip, wings, Chex mix… Even though I have the world’s biggest sweet tooth, something about tailgating parties and football on the TV has me craving all the salty snacks. Avocado deviled eggs are great for Easter too!
In my opinion, there are a few party favorite appetizer snacks that are almost always a huge hit but seem to be really underserved. Number one: Shrimp cocktail. Have you ever seen a single shrimp left on a shrimp cocktail platter at the end of a party? Number two: Deviled eggs. No one can resist this creamy, salty, protein-packed party favorite.
So the next time you’re heading off to a tailgate before a football game or the next time you find yourself at a friend’s house to watch a game, why not show up with a snack you know everyone will love… but with a little twist!
And that’s where these Avocado Deviled Eggs come in! Like the classic deviled eggs everyone loves, they’re salty and creamy and easy to make but this particular rendition is dairy-free and doesn’t call for a plethora of mayonnaise.
To make these eggs you will need:
- A dozen hard-boiled eggs (but you already knew that)
- Avocado (Healthy fats! Creamy texture!)
- Olive oil (Healthy fats x2!)
- Red bell pepper and red onion (sneaky veggies)
- Fresh cilantro (or not if you think it tastes like soap)
- Dijon mustard (for a little tangy-ness)
- Salt and pepper (because a lil’ salt makes everything better)
And here’s the good news: This recipe is virtually goof-proof. All you have to do is peel the hard boiled eggs, cut them in half and remove the egg yolks before mashing the yolks up with all of the other ingredients. Really mash ‘em up! And then scoop the avocado-y, mashy mixture back into the egg whites, top with a little somethin’ tasty and pretty and wow all of your friends! Or yourself! Because I’m fully on board with prepping some of these eggs for yourself for a healthy snack! (Just store the avocado mixture with the pits of the avocado and a couple of squeezes of lime juice and wait to scoop it into the eggs whites until you’re ready to dig in!)
You can also make your life easier by ordering everything you need to make these ingredients from BJ’s Wholesale Club with same-day delivery. Simply place an order for all the ingredients you need online and then wait for them to arrive at your doorstep in as little as two hours!
