Guacamole Deviled Eggs: Green Egg Fun

These eggs are in honor of my three-year-old, who will eat guacamole by the spoonful.

I'm excited about them . . .

  • because they are green, and tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day.
  • because it's been Dr. Seuss month at school so green eggs are inherently cool.
  • because I finally found a way to get my kids to eat the yolk of a hard boiled egg, not just the white.
  • because they are yummy!

Guacamole-Deviled Eggs
4 eggs
1/4 cup of guacamole 

Step 1:  Hard boil the eggs.  My favorite method is to place the eggs in a saucepan, filling with water to cover.  Cover with a lid and bring to boil over high heat.  Once rapidly boiling, turn the heat off, but leave the pan covered, sitting on the burner for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, pour off the hot water and chill with cool water.

Step 2:  Peel the eggs and cut in half (the long way), scoop out the yolk.

Step 3:  Mash the yolks with a fork.  Combine the mashed yolk with the 1/4 cup of guacamole (it should be about equal parts yolks and guacamole).

Step 4:  Scoop the guacamole-yolk mixture back into the egg white.

Serve and enjoy!
