What an exciting week last week! First, let’s get started with this week’s recipe:
Bacon Guacamole Deviled Eggs?
Bacon Guacamole Deviled Eggs are a new take on an old favorite. In looking for a substitution for mayonnaise, I came across several people that use mashed avocado. I love avocados because they take on a lot of the flavor of whatever you pair them with, making them a great healthy addition to just about any dish. In deviled eggs, they add a great thickness and creaminess, mimicking mayo, but with no cholesterol and lots of healthy goodness.
Make Bacon Guacamole Deviled Eggs for a Dr. Seuss Party!
As the avocados oxidize, they turn the yolks slightly green, making them perfect for a party honoring the beloved children’s author. Pair Bacon Guacamole Deviled Eggs with a grilled or baked ham slice for a great surprise for the kids. They’ll be surprised that you got the eggs to turn green and love them at the same time. If you’d like to keep them yellow though, add a tablespoon of lime juice to the avocado before you mix in the yolks. Your mixture will stay a beautiful light yellow.
