Avacado Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs!!
I the inspiration for these from Skinnytaste.com. I have been making Bacon Cheddar Deviled eggs for quite awhile. They are always a hit. When Skinnytaste posted a recipe for avocado deviled eggs I couldn't wait to mix it with my deviled eggs. And they were a perfect green appetizer for St. Patricks Day! And as a bonus I got to use my new egg serving platter that I got from Kohl's last week.
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 medium avacado
4 slices bacon
2 tablespoons finely shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper
Place eggs in a saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover, and let eggs stand in hot water for 10. Remove from hot water, and place in an ice bath to cool.
Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. You can also wrap bacon in paper towels and cook in the microwave for about 1 minute per slice. Crumble and set aside.
Peel the hard-cooked eggs, and cut in half lengthwise. Remove yolks to a small bowl. Mash egg yolks with avacado until smooth and creamy. (If the avacado is still a little stuff, you can microwave for 30 seconds before adding to the yolks.) Add the remaining ingredients, using the salt and pepper to taste. Fill egg white halves with the yolk mixture and refrigerate until serving. The easiest way to fill the eggs is to load up a ziploc bag with the mixture, cut the top off of one end, then pipe the filling into the eggs.
