When my hens are feeling especially productive, we make deviled eggs frequently. While most of the people in my household will do their best to avoid a simple hard-boiled egg, they like deviled eggs.

Avocado deviled eggs

Whether you’re raising your own hens or not, Easter means lots of hard boiled eggs for many people. And that makes for a perfect opportunity to whip up a batch of these avocado deviled eggs.

These avocado deviled eggs give us a chance to use an abundance of eggs plus the overflow of avocados we are often blessed with.

If we’re making them here, just for us? I simply use a spoon to put the filling inside the egg halves. They’re prettier, though, if you use a cake decorating bag. I prefer this reusable one, rather than the disposable kinds.

Using avocado instead of mayonnaise makes these a suitable Whole30 deviled egg recipe and a lectin-free option as well, as long as your eggs are sourced from soy-and corn-free chickens.
