A little bit twisted – green deviled eggs
These Paleo gems are about to rock your holiday world!
I don’t know about you, but deviled eggs are a requirement for Easter at our house. These gorgeous little gems are so good! And they’re completely at home on any holiday’s table! I love eggs prepared almost anyway – but there is something extra special about deviled eggs. They’re fancy!
My grandmother’s original recipe is delicious. Growing up my mom made them every year for Easter and Christmas and sometimes even Thanksgiving. No matter how many she made, the plate was always empty at the end of the night.
This year I wanted to make my own version of deviled eggs – one that’s been nutritionally optimized. These green deviled Easter eggs are easy, tasty and full of healthy fat. What more could you want?
In this recipe, avocado serves as a substitute for the traditional mayo. The avocado provides a rich flavor and gives the eggs a gorgeous light green color. There’s a little bit of maple syrup and a hint of smoked paprika that gives these babies sweet and smoky notes which pairs magically with the crumbled bacon. Top the whole thing off with some finely diced tomatoes and chives, and you get a party in your mouth!
I am going to tell you the answer to the most asked question about hard-boiled eggs. How to make sure you can easily peel hard-boiled eggs.
PRO TIP: The secret to being able to peel hard-boiled eggs.
- Bring water to a boil before adding the eggs.
- Add eggs using a spoon to prevent splashing the hot water.
- Boil for 10 minutes.
- Remove and cool, either under cold water or just let them sit until cool enough to peel.
- Eggs should peel easily!
