Avocado Deviled Eggs

Posted March 27, 2018


Makes 10 Servings

  • 10 large eggs
  • 4 raw egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 firm, ripe avocado, peeled and halved, pitted and diced
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 tsp paprika



Boil, peel and then slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and discard. Set the hard-boiled egg halves aside.

In a small saucepan, cook the raw egg whites over medium heat until cooked through. In a food processor or blender, puree the egg whites, lime juice and avocado thoroughly.

Add black pepper and red onion to egg-avocado puree. Spoon mixture evenly into hard-boiled egg halves and sprinkle paprika on top. Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve chilled.
