If you want to be the most popular person EVER, you’ll need to start bringing these to every social function you attend. I made this recipe for our family back on Thanksgiving, and they were a HUGE hit. (shhh! Don’t tell them it was paleo!) I’d include a picture, but they disappeared so fast that I never managed to take one! If you want to make them in advance, I would recommend waiting until the last minute to blend in the avocado, as it may turn dark. (not very appetizing) Oh, and if someone happens to make these, could you snap a picture and email it to me? I’d LOVE to be able to throw your picture on the blog to make this recipe complete!
6 hard boiled eggs, peeled
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled nice and small
1 avocado, diced
3 tablespoons paleo friendly mayonnaise (recipe below)
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (optional garnish)
Salt to taste
Cut eggs in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out yolks. Mash yolks with a fork. Stir in diced avocados, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, bacon and salt to taste. Fill egg whites with yolk mixture and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle with cayenne lightly, or sprinkle with the fresh chopped parsley.
To make 1 cup of Paleo Mayo (recipe is from EverydayPaleo.com)
1-1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
pinch of sea salt
few shakes of cayenne pepper
1 tsp yellow mustard
1 cup olive oil
In a food processor process for 5 seconds the egg, vinegar, mustard, cayenne pepper, and sea salt. For another 5 seconds of blending slowly add the olive oil until it makes mayo.
