Happy Easter! Whether you celebrate the holiday or not, I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend! I personally don’t have much attachment to Easter, but one tradition I do enjoy taking part in is Easter brunch. One of my favorite activities is brunch in general, so why not combine the meal with the holiday to make a fun event? Today I’m sharing one of my favorite Easter brunch recipes, guacamole deviled eggs. It’s super easy and fast to make, and delicious as well!
I first whipped up these babies when celebrating Easter brunch with my roommates back in my university days, but since then I have always kept this recipe on hand as it is so easy to make, takes no time at all, and seems to be a real crowd favorite. Deviled eggs can be quite traditional, and somewhat boring, but with the addition of guacamole, this recipe becomes a lot more exciting and healthier too! Deviled eggs usually call for mayonnaise, which is usually quite unhealthy, but with this recipe, you replace all mayo with avocados, making it a much healthier choice, and a lot tastier too in my opinion!
Just a disclaimer, I have a “loose” cooking style, meaning that all measurements given below are tailored to my taste and preference, but if you try this recipe, I recommend you alter any of the ingredients to your tastes as well. For example, I leave out red onions from my guacamole because I don’t like them, but if that’s your thing, then go for it! For me, cooking is all about experimenting, and having fun until you find just what you like so I hope this recipe can be just that for you too!
What you’ll need
- 10 hard boiled eggs
- 2 ripe avocados
- 20 grams chopped cilantro
- Juice from 2 limes
- 6-8 cherry tomatoes, chopped
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
How to Make Guacamole Deviled Eggs
Once you have hard boiled your eggs, peel them and cut them in half lengthwise. Scoop out all of the yolks and place them in a bowl. If you prefer a less “egg-y” taste, then only use some of the yolks, and discard the rest. I used all 10 yolks because I didn’t want any to go to waste.
Then, the rest is simple. Just add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl with the yolks, and mash everything together. I leave out the tomatoes until the very end so they don’t get completely mashed up with the rest.
Once all the ingredients have been combined, spoon some of the guacamole into each of the eggs. Arrange the filled egg-halves on a platter or plate and voila!
