Fat Guacamole Devils

By Worker Bee
116 Comments

Breathing new life into a tried and true recipe is a simple way of adding variety to your diet. Take deviled eggs, for example. They’ve been around as long as any of us can probably remember, although you don’t see them at parties as often as you once did. It’s not because deviled eggs aren’t good, it’s just that they’re not that exciting anymore. You might, however,  start seeing them served more often again if enough people see the recipe for Fat Guacamole Devils Tamara Baysinger entered in our Primal Blueprint Cookbook Challenge.

Her take on deviled eggs eliminates the mayonnaise and uses avocado instead. This loads the eggs with even more healthy fat and gives the filling a creamy, rich texture. A teaspoon or so of lime juice and hot sauce liven things up and just like that you’ve got a flavorful, interesting new take on a classic recipe.

While these deviled eggs aren’t quite bite-sized (they’re not called Fat Guacamole Devils for nothing) they’re definitely the type of finger food we love to snack on. We can imagine eating these eggs pretty much any time of day that hunger strikes. You can serve them as snack food at everything from dinner parties to Super Bowl parties. If you want to dress the little devils up for a party (or just add more flavor and fat) follow Tamara’s suggestion of garnishing the eggs with chopped olives or crumbled bacon. Other garnishes to consider are cilantro, a fresh herb that always goes well with avocado, and paprika, a spice typically used to top deviled eggs.

Fat Guacamole Devils

Ingredients:

  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

Peel and halve the eggs and spoon their yolks into a small bowl.

Mash the yolks with the avocado, hot sauce and lime juice; add salt and pepper to taste.

Refill egg white halves with yolk mixture, and enjoy!

Hey there! I just want to say that I love your blog/site, and have never commented before, but I never thought another person used this recipe but me:) eggs and avocados are a few of my favorite foods, and they just go great together! I’ve been slowly transitioning my diet to a more primal one the past year or so, and you’ve helped a lot. I love waking up in the morning and reading something new each day. So, thank you Mark for having your awesome site for everyone to learn and share ideas. I love cooking primal!

When I first began my primal journey (trek? epic quest?) I made something like this. I just made regular guacamole with onions and tomatoes and stuffed that in the egg whites. I like the idea of putting the yolks back in with the avocado. I think I just popped them in my mouth when I made them before.

Avocados and fried eggs for breakfast with a touch of hot sauce. Been on my list of favs for the last 6 or 7 months. Love the idea of the deviled eggs.

My wife and I are hosting dinner tonight for two old friends of ours, and we have a 5-pound Mary’s Free-range Duck, chard greens with bacon, a butternut squash to make a delicious hot soup, and 2 bottles of Carmel Road Pinot Noir.

We were trying to think of what we can make for an appetizer, and then I read this post and the question to the meaning of life has been answered!

Looks great. I will be trying this one soon. I often eat deviled eggs. My wife loves them and it’s quick if I’m in a hurry to leave. I have been recently just using mayo, dijon mustard and adding hemp seeds for a nice crunch.

We always add curry powder (Madras is the best!) to our deviled eggs. Alot of curry! Yum!

Mark, I thought I saw a comment you made concerning Tourette’s Syndrome and lesions on the CNS. I have suffered from TS (and ADHD and depression) since I was 1 year old. Do you have more information about TS? I’ve never seen anything online about a TS/CNS/lesions? Thanks.

Yup, it does cry out for a side of ham to go with it. But, seriously, what a perfect idea~ combining two of the best foods, eggs & avocado. I can’t wait to make it.
