Why You’ll Love These Healthy Avocado Deviled Eggs

  • Easy
  • Nutritious
  • Make-ahead friendly

Let’s get started!  Here’s what you’ll need:

Recipe Ingredients and Instant Pot on a kitchen counter

  • 6 eggs, hard boiled
  • ½ medium avocado 
  • 3 tbsp Greek yogurt 
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked (optional- for garnish)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

If you haven’t already hard boiled your eggs, I recommend the 5-5-5 method with an instant pot. The pressure causes the shells and whites to pull away from each other a bit, making them far easier to peel than traditional boiling.

If you don’t have an instant pot, here’s the next best method I perfected over the years before I had an IP.  Start with a pot of water and eggs in it at room temp, bring to a boil and simmer low- not rolling- for 6 minutes.  Then turn off gas or remove from heat and leave covered 10 minutes, and ice bath for another 5 minutes.

Starting with cooked eggs, you’ll need a cutting board or plate, bowl for mixing, a fork, and spoon.  Optionally you can use an electric mixer, a ziplock, scissors, and frosting tip.

Instructions

Step 1: Mash your Mayo Replacement

Dice or mash the avocado in the bowl, then add your greek yogurt and mix well.  I just use a fork because it’s less dishes to clean after, but if you want an extra silky smooth filling you can use an electric mixer.

Step 2: Make the No Mayo Filling

Slice your eggs in half carefully.  Add the yolks, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the bowl and mix well.

If you’re making these ahead, go ahead and put the filling into a ziplock or other container where you can minimize air contacting the filling.  Plastic wrap pressed down into the filling in a food storage container works well.

Step 3: Fill the Eggs

Fill the egg whites with your prepared filling.  You can do this one of two ways.  First, you can just spoon your mayo free filling into the egg whites.  This is what I do if they’re just for my family or close friends.

But if I want them to look extra fancy for a Christmas party or something, then I will opt for method number two.  I snip off the corner of a ziplock and place a frosting tip in that corner, taping it on the outside to secure it in place.  Then fill the ziplock and use it as a piping bag to fill the egg whites.

Step 4: Garnish and Eat!

I garnished these with a single slice of bacon I broke up, though bacon bits would be lovely as well.  If you want to keep them vegetarian you can always skip the garnish, or go with the traditional paprika to give them a Christmas color palette!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to make these ahead?

I love making these the day before!  I fully prepare the filling and the egg whites, then store the filling in a ziplock and the egg whites in the carrier I’ll be taking with me (or another container if they’ll be served at my house).  This way the only thing I have to do day-of is pipe the filling into the egg whites, and we’re ready to go.

How long do leftovers keep?

Once the filling is piped into the eggs, I’d eat them within a day or two being stored in the refrigerator.  The lemon juice significantly slows the avocado browning, but it doesn’t stop it entirely.  They do beautifully during an event though so no worries there!  Last time I served these was for the Super Bowl, and the one egg remaining at the end of the game was still a vibrant green.

Can I make this recipe dairy free?

Absolutely!  The yogurt gives these a bit more fluff than avocado alone, but you can use a bit more avocado and have the filling be a bit thicker.  Alternatively, you can use about a tablespoon of oil in place of the yogurt.

How much Salt and Pepper is “to taste”?

Yours might be different, but I use approximately 1/4 tsp of each for this recipe.  Start light and don’t be afraid to taste the filling mixture to check it- remember you can always add in more as you go, but once it’s mixed in you can’t take it out.
