Amazing Bacon Avocado Deviled eggs

February 7th, 2011, by

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 egg
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.

  • Hooray! a mayo recipe.
    How long will this keep in the fridge? It's very acidic so that should help keep the bacteria at bay...I prefer to keep mayo on hands at all times!

  • Catherine, I don't know how long it keeps. I've only ever made it for a recipe, used most of it, and then washed the remainder down the sink. You'll have to be our official test subject of how long it keeps. Will you let me know what you find out?

    And Sparky, thanks for offering to take a picture. These are amazingly delicious...I need a good excuse to make them. Is it wrong to serve them for dinner? :-)

  • These look awesome - can't wait to try them. I wonder about the raw egg in the mayo though... ?

  • Sarah, don't fear the raw egg! There's also raw egg in cookie dough, and ceasar salad dressing, but people eat those all the time, right? :-) Fear not the rawness.
