Instructions


  1. Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and place in a medium bowl. (Be careful not to damage the white halves).

  2. Add avocado to bowl, and mash yolks and avocado thoroughly with a fork until fairly smooth. Add mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic powder, cayenne and salt. Stir well to blend all ingredients.

  3. Place filling in the whites using a small spoon or pipe in with a pastry bag and decorative tube. 

  4. Garnish as desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate in a tightly covered container. 


Tips & Notes

• Avocados should be ripe but not mushy. Color is not always a good indicator of ripeness, so choose avocados that yield to gentle yet firm pressure.

• Avoid avocados with large indentations on the skin; this could indicate bruising.

• Refrigerate ripe avocados to slow further ripening.

• Substitute sour cream for mayonnaise if desired.

• This recipe is gluten-free as long as the mayonnaise has not been contaminated with a used knife.
