THE RECIPE

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs with a green twist

Looking for that perfect appetizer to watch the stars stroll down the Red Carpet for your Oscars viewing party? Deviled eggs are one of our go-to cocktail party appetizers but we’re always looking for something to make them just a little more special. This recipe from Jennifer keeps us thinking green by substituting avocado for some of the mayo that’s in a traditional deviled egg recipe. The result is a beautiful green color, creamy consistency, and even more of that delicious avocado flavor that we crave. After hard-cooking the eggs, pinch of ground mustards adds a spicy bite and parsley and lime juice add a punchy tang to balance the flavors. Pipe the filling into the egg white halves using a homemade pastry bag (if you don’t have a real one). These never last long enough so make a few dozen extra and party in style.
