Deviled eggs are perfect for parties, and today I’m going to show you a recipe that’s slightly different from the classic one.

We’re making guacamole deviled eggs!

As you can guess, they are filled with a homemade mashed avocado mixture that’s incredibly easy to bring together.

The traditional recipes for these handheld appetizers tend to include mayonnaise, but our recipe is healthier and very colorful – using perfectly ripe avocados to provide healthy fats and a beautiful contrast in color.

These gourmet appetizers look like you’ve spent a long time making them, but you only need 25 minutes from start to finish.

And the best part is, since they can be served at room temperature, you can make them a little in advance of your guests’ arrival.

Slice boiled and peeled eggs in half lengthwise, and remove the yolks. Prepare the filling by mashing the avocado flesh, a couple of boiled yolks, salt, and olive oil together. Mix in some chopped parsley, and then stuff the halved whites with the filling.

Take the classic deviled eggs up a notch by making this healthier option instead, using a fresh avocado filling! We share the recipe: https://foodal.com/recipes/appetizers/guacamole-deviled-eggs/

Garnish with fresh parsley leaves, and serve with lime wedges. Your guests are sure to be impressed!

Place the eggs in a large pot and cover them with cold water. Bring to a boil. Let the water boil for at least one minute before turning off the heat, and allow them to continue cooking in the hot water for at least 10 minutes.

Once ready, drain and rinse them with cold water.

Step 3 – Peel and Scoop out the Yolks

Gently roll them on the countertop to create small cracks in the shells. Peel them, and carefully cut each one in half lengthwise.

A properly sharpened knife will help you to easily and cleanly cut through each one!

Using a teaspoon, remove the yolks and reserve two of them for later. You can store the remaining yolks in the refrigerator for another use, like topping a fresh veggie salad with pesto dressing.

Step 4 – Prepare the Filling
