Avocado & Bacon Deviled Eggs

In Foodie Tips & Tidbits by Christine McKellar

green deviled eggs with baconI served a dozen (24 egg halves) of these avocado and bacon deviled eggs at Easter as an appetizer. They all but disappeared in a matter of minutes. I didn’t use as much mayo as is called for because of the creaminess of the avocado so I recommend you use your own judgement on that. These eggs were so good that I doubt I will ever again devil eggs without avocado!
