How to make vegetarian avocado deviled eggs

Print this recipe
Deviled eggs are always the first thing to disappear from a picnic or party spread. I swear it happens every time I serve them. The recipe below adds a fresh new twist to the classic midday party dish. These are sure to disappear even faster than the traditional.
Made with a whole, diced avocado and only a dollop of mayonnaise, these delicious little devils aren’t just good, but good for you because of that healthy monounsaturated fat from the avocado. I love to serve these as an afternoon barbecue appetizer or for a garden party lunch or brunch.
