Green Eggs with a Twist: Avocado Deviled Eggs


  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 2 slices bacon, chopped (optional)
  • Chopped chives

  • Smoked paprika or regular paprika (optional)


  1. Hard boil the eggs:

    Bring a pot of water to a gentle boil, add the eggs, and simmer for 8-9 minutes. Transfer to an ice bath and crack the shells.
  2. Prepare the eggs: Cut the eggs in half, scoop out the yolks, and arrange the whites on a plate.
  3. Make the filling: Mash the yolks with the avocado, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, and Greek yogurt.
  4. Season and fill: Taste and adjust seasonings. Spoon or pipe the filling into the egg whites.
  5. Garnish: Stick a piece of bacon into each egg, sprinkle with chives and paprika (if desired).


  • Spicy: Add cayenne or sriracha to the filling.
  • Guacamole: Use lime juice instead of lemon, add minced jalapeño, and garnish with cilantro.

  • Wasabi: Add wasabi to the avocado filling.


  • Don’t skip the cold water bath for the eggs, as it makes them easier to peel.
  • Mash the filling well if piping it to avoid clogging the tip.
  • Use a small cookie dough scoop for spooning the filling for a more even distribution.


  • Avocado deviled eggs don’t store well, as the avocado will brown. Store leftovers by gently pressing plastic wrap over them to limit air exposure.
