I do not like deviled eggs, but my family LOVES them! Since my family is such a fan, it is fun to come up with variations of the recipe.
I love avocados, and thankfully so does the family unit. Coming up with a combination of avocado and deviled eggs seemed like a great plan. This is our avocado deviled eggs recipe.
Now, I must admit that I liked these deviled eggs. Perhaps it is because it tasted like I was eating a tasty variation of guacamole. Whatever the reason, I will be serving these at our next party for sure.
How long do deviled eggs last?
Deviled eggs can last two days in the fridge if they are placed in there right away. Don't allow the prepared eggs to sit out on the counter for an extended amount of time. They should be kept cold and served cold.

Tips on making this recipe:
- If you are making these for an event, you can hard boil your eggs the night before. Cooking them the night before will save on time. Just put those eggs in the fridge right away. It isn't safe for them to sit out.
- Lifehacker had a great trick for how to easily peel an egg, and it worked super well for me. You put the egg in a glass of water and shake it. Do this over the sink because you will make a mess. The shell peeled right off for me when I did this.
- I made my avocado mayo for this recipe, but you can also buy it in most grocery stores these days.
- The parsley is a nice touch but isn't necessary for the flavor. If you don't have any, go ahead and make the recipe anyways.
