Avocado Deviled Eggs

This month will be my first time participating in a little something called Recipe Redux. I couldn’t be more excited to join other fantastic and creative dietitian/food bloggers to share healthy, delicious and simple recipes with all our readers! We were challenged this month to create recipes that contain 7 ingredients or less….how P-E-R-F-E-C-T that my first #TheRecipeRedux is all about simple recipes.

Deviled eggs– you either love ’em or hate ’em. I fall into the love ’em category and have been deemed the official deviled egg maker in the family. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, to Easter- they’re on my “to bring list”.

They also happen to be the perfect breakfast and really only call for a handful of ingredients. PLUS, if you can hard boil some eggs during a meal prep session over the weekend, you’re like more than 50% done to making deviled eggs.

Now with Easter around the corner I’ve been racking my brain on ways to lighten up traditional Easter items and also keep in line my philosophy of KISSing it (Keep it simple, Shannon). So why not just swap out one little ingredient and call it a [healthier] day?! Okay, and maybe add one extra topping for color and sweetness.



Repeat after me: OUT with the mayo, IN with the avocado.
​I don’t know about you, but I’d buy a T-shirt that says that.

KISS Tip #1: Lime juice gives this delicious mixture the perfect hint of tang, but also helps keeps the avocado from turning brown!

KISS Tip #2: Make a half batch of these (3 hard-boiled eggs) and put with a slice of whole grain toast and some fresh fruit for a perfectly balanced breakfast!

KISS Tip #3: If you’re the type of deviled egg lover that craves sweet and can’t imagine your eggs without sweet relish, ditch the cranberries and add 1 Tbsp of relish to the egg-avocado mix!
