Avocado Deviled Eggs

Recipe by:  Mother Thyme


Makes 12 eggs


6 peeled hard boiled eggs

1 ripe avocado peeled and pit removed

1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise (light or regular)

1/2 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley

1/8 teaspoon ground mustard

Salt and pepper to taste


Cut eggs lengthwise and remove yolks.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl combine egg yolks, avocado, lime juice, mayonnaise, parsley, ground mustard and mash using a potato masher or two forks until nice and creamy.  Alternatively you can add all the ingredients in a food processor and blend.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add mixture into egg whites with a spoon or pastry bag and garnish with a chopped parsley.  


This recipe can also be modified to use only half the eggs yolks and still combine the remaining ingredients for a lighter version.
