What is Deviled Food? “Deviled” in food terminology simply means food prepared with spicy condiments/seasonings (like mustard). The term was coined back in the 18th century in Rome and has endured ever since and we’ve been enjoying both ‘deviled’ are ham and eggs for as long as I can remember!
How to Cook Deviled Eggs with Avocado
- Cut hard boiled eggs in half and remove the yolks.
- Mash up the yolks with a ripe avocado and some seasonings (I add lemon or lime juice to keep the filling from browning).
- Scoop or pipe into egg white halves. We use a sandwich baggie with the corner cut off. Finally garnish with some cooked and crumbled bacon and a sprinkle of paprika for color.
Want to really ‘devil up’ your avocado deviled eggs with bacon? Try adding a teaspoon of Sriracha to the mixture for an extra spicy flavor! Or even try a bit of salad dressing to make creamy avocado bacon ranch deviled eggs! Go ahead and get devilishly creative!
Avocado deviled eggs taste best when they are freshly made and cold! They can be fully prepared a couple of hours in advance. If you want to make them ahead of time prep everything as directed except the avocado. Shortly before serving, mash the avocado and stir it into the mashed yolks. Fill the eggs and serve.
How Long are Deviled Eggs Good For?
Regular deviled eggs are fine for up to 5 days. Unfortunately the avocado in these eggs doesn’t last quite as long. They’ll still be food-safe to eat but the avocado can oxidize so I try to eat them within a couple of days. If you’ve got leftovers to use up, try an egg salad for lunch or chop them up and add them to your fave pasta salad recipe!
