Avocado Bacon Deviled Eggs

Let’s talk deviled eggs, shall we.  They are amazingly delicious  But they have been around for decades without much change.  I typically make them the same way mom makes them, who makes them the same way her mom makes them, etc.  I’ve been thinking about how I could update the traditional deviled egg with a bit of a modern twist.

Then, it came to me in the middle of the night….AVOCADO!  It’s my newest love and I just can’t seem to get enough of this tasty fruit.  Wait…stop…there’s more!  What could make this egg even better than adding avocado….BACON!  Oh yes I just said bacon.

I probably shouldn’t mention that I just ate the filling topped with bacon on a spoon, but as you know I’m allergic to the whites….so I had to.  I had to know what I posting.  It’s a perk of the job.  {I know…you’re jealous, aren’t you?} Well, don’t be.  These are super easy.

In fact, these babies will be making an appearance at all holiday meals, picnics, potlucks, and family functions from now until forever.  Yes, they are that good.  I love my new Vonny LA Deviled Egg Carrier and it will make transporting these bites of avocado heaven a breeze.  The bag is stiff, has a non-skid surface on the inside, the carrier is made of an easy-to-clean laminated printed canvas, and even comes with the egg tray.  The egg tray holds 11 eggs (not sure why not 12, but I guess that’s so you can taste your creation before taking the rest to a party).

Seriously, Vonny’s line of products is so adorable and functional that I had to share them with you.  They would make amazing gifts for mother’s day, bridal showers, your bff, or just because you deserve something amazing.  I also am in love with the Casserole Tote.  I have one that matches my Egg Carrier, but haven’t had the chance to use it yet.  The best part is that it is made to hold a 9×13 casserole dish (so no special dish is required, just use what you’ve got) and it has a pocket on top to hold serving utensils.

Let’s get back to the Avocado Bacon Deviled Eggs

You know the comedian Jim Gaffigan?  He has a bit where he says bacon is the fairy dust of the food world.  I laugh so hard every time I hear him say it, but it’s so true.  Everything tastes better with bacon.  The bacon crumbles perched on top of the eggs adds the perfect amount of smokey, salty goodness that the eggs need.  On that note…I wouldn’t use maple bacon, but rather a nice smokey bacon.

Great avocados are just starting to hit the shelves now and I’m so excited. All winter long I was so sad that the avocados in my area were horrible and small, but I found some beautiful avocados at the store this week and can’t wait to make some guacamole too!

      Hi Ashley! Why do you want to sub the mayo? Allergy? Texture? etc? That will help me figure out a good substitute for you. I’m sure we can come up with something.

    These look delicious and for my vegetarian family members, I can use bacon bits that aren’t real meat.

    These look amazing with the addition of avocado! Can’t believe i have never heard of this take on the classic deviled egg. Thanks for sharing.

    Just less than a year ago, I found out i loved avocado. All these years saying yuck to it, but one day Dr. Oz said it was a super food,so I tried it and fell in love. I love deviled eggs so I will be trying your recipe Wendy. Yummmmy

    Yum! I’ve got a resolution to add more avocado to my life in 2013, and these would fit the bill.

    I think it’s great how you can find delicious things to post that fit in (at least, somewhat) with your food allergies. I bet this filling would be good on a cracker or carrot stick or even full on green in a piece of celery.

    Thanks!

    We must have been having the same dream then! ;) It’s so crazy, cause I made these last Monday, then saw them on Skinny Taste on Wednesday, and am just now seeing them on your blog! HAHA, Love it!

    What a fantastic idea! I love avocados too and they do go so well with eggs. I have something else to say but before I do I want to assure you that I think these look gorgeous and that the next thing I’m about to say is not supposed to imply that they don’t. But seriously, these would have been perfect for Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 1st. Green eggs! Ha ha!
