In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I’d like to share my avocado-drizzled, deviled egg recipe. I love this Paleo recipe because it’s easy to make, requires simple ingredients, and it’s always a hit at my get-togethers.

How To Get Perfect Bacon


What is the best way to get perfect crispy bacon? Cooking bacon strips in the oven. A great topping for a deviled egg recipe.


Get perfect crispy bacon by baking in the oven.


I applaud those of you that can get perfectly crispy bacon by cooking it in a pan. I always end up burning bacon on the skillet, so now I bake my bacon. Place bacon strips on wax paper on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Keep an eye on it until it reaches your desired level of crispy. I love this method of preparing bacon because it’s nearly mess free. When it’s done, set aside to cool and then chop finely.

Boiled Eggs

It’s important to create the perfect hardboiled egg to create the perfect deviled egg recipe. Knowing how long to boil eggs for can be tricky. This method has been working for me for years. Place eggs in a pot and fill with water just enough to cover them. Bring to a rolling boil then turn the heat off and set aside with the lid on for 26 minutes. When they’re ready, drain out the water and give them an ice bath to make peeling the shells easier.

Cut peeled eggs in half and separate all the yolks in a bowl. With a hand mixer, combine egg yolks, mayo, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste. Refill the egg whites with your yolk mixture. Now they’re ready for the avocado sauce.

The Avocado Drizzle for the Best Deviled Egg Recipe

Using a blender or food processor, add the water, avocado, juice of one lemon and two garlic cloves. Blend the mixture until creamy. This sauce has been fantastic over poached eggs fish, and chicken and takes under 5 minutes to make. Drizzle the avocado over the eggs with a spoon or icing bag and top with a sprinkle of paprika and the bacon bits we prepared earlier.
