A perfect appetizer for the next party you are hosting or simply delicious as a new snack for you and your family to enjoy. This recipe is a modern twist on the good ol’ classic…deviled eggs. I have to be honest here…I have never actually had deviled eggs before. Kinda weird right? Oh wel! Anyhoo, these babies are a yummy way of spicin’ up your life, especially if you eat hardboiled eggs pretty much daily like myself. If you are getting tired of your standard ‘go-to’s’, then give these bite-sized bits a go. Again, similar to my last post…the options here for toppings are pretty much endless!
Admitedly, I had sooooo much fun making these (total nerd on a Friday night!) I am very ‘crafty’ and loved putting these little creations together. Without a doubt, I think that this is the prettiest, cutest, most adorable dish I have made thus far. I have had the idea for this recipe in my head for quite some time. I just thought that the combo of the eggs with the guac would be so tasty together…and damn I was right. I finally sat down on the weekend and made a list of toppings I thought would compliment one another, grabbed a few items at the store and got busy in the kitchen. In the end (after sampling the platter) our top 3 favs were…the ones topped with bacon (of course!), the sauteed mushroom and then sauteed onion and roasted red pepper. Put your thinkin’ cap on…what delicious variations can you dream up?!
- eggs - number of course depends on how many you wish to make (add on a few extra, just incase some break or don't cooperate with you!)
- guacamole - can use homemade or storebought (I used Mad Mexican Guacamole)
- assorted toppings
- fresh herbs and spices
- boston lettuce leaves for even more effect! 😉 - optional
- start by harboiling your eggs for 8-12 minutes (depending on number of eggs)
- drain hot water and let cool by covering with cold water and placing in the fridge
- in the meantime, sautee any veggies or cook any meat that needs to be prepared
- while this is happening, cut or chop any veggies/herbs that you are going to use as toppings
- once eggs have completely cooled, crack the shell and carefully peel the eggs
- once peeled, take a large sharp knife and cut eggs in half
- remove yolks using a small spoon while gently squeezing the egg (I kept the yolks and used them to crumble on top of a salad)
- with a spoon or using a pastry bag (like I did to make them pretty!), fill the 'emptied eggs' with guacamole
- garnish with desired toppings
- plate and serve
OMG! I know that this recipe has been up for a while, but I just discovered it and I am super excited to make some guacafied eggs. I love deviled eggs and this looks like the perfect paleo alternative. Every recipe I’ve made from your site is a winner – keep ’em coming!
Awesome! Thank you!!!
OMG! These look delicious! I am going to a Father’s Day cookout this weekend to honor my husband and our dear friend (both amaziing fathers), and they both love deviled eggs! I am going to make half of them guacified and alternate them on the platter! It will look cool and I can’t wait to taste them!! Thanks for sharing this!
You are so welcome! What a great idea for your cookout! Take a picture of them and let me know how everything turns out! Good luck and have a great weekend!! =)
[…] Hard-boiled/‘Guacafied’ Eggs – oh hard-boiled eggs…I honestly never get sick of you! I eat them almost daily…for reals! Super quick to make and even easier to take with you on the road. I usually just crack, peel and sprinkle with a dash or two of hot sauce…and some pepper and sea salt. If you have more time and want to get a little fancy…try guacafying your eggs! […]
