One of Melo’s friends is getting married next month and she was invited to a bridal shower this past weekend. It was one of those garden party pot-luck style showers (love those!) and she was asked to bring deviled eggs. Well it’s finals season for her, which means she’s sick. Which also means I had to make the deviled eggs; which I don’t mind.
Now, I’ve had deviled eggs plenty of times. Living in the south they’re basically a food group and present at every pot-luck or dinner party. However, I’ve never made deviled eggs, so I scoured the interwebs for recipes (read: Pinterest). And, of course, I had to go with a recipe that was different from your basic deviled egg. I found this awesome recipe from Ella Claire, and, after a few modifications, had some pretty awesome deviled eggs whipped up for the bridal shower.
- 18 hard-boiled eggs cut in half, yolks removed
- 1 medium avocado
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons mayo
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- salt to your liking
- pepper to your liking
- garlic powder to your liking
- sriracha powder
- Chill egg whites in fridge.
- In a large bowl, add all ingredients except sriracha powder.
- Using a fork or spoon, mash well to eliminate any large clumps. You can also use a blender, but I just used a spoon.
- Remove egg whites from fridge.
- Using a piping bag and large star tip, pipe blended yolk mixture into eggs. You can also just spoon the mixture into the eggs, but the star tip makes it look extra purdy.
- Once done with piping, sprinkle eggs with sriracha powder.
- Cover and chill for about 30 minutes.
If you make them, let us know how you liked them! They were a hit at the bridal shower and didn’t last very long!
