Guacamole Stuffed Eggs

Here's a good idea for your summer BBQ's that's easy on the waistline.
No mayo (sorry Hellman's, not this time), and no egg yolk.

Also, these won't spoil in the heat!
It's a win win.

Everyone loves guacamole, and who doesn't love deviled eggs?

What to do with the cooked yolks? I threw mine away, because I didn't know what to do with them. Bad girl.

For 5 whole eggs (10 halves):

1 ripe avocado
sea salt
fresh lemon juice
pimenton (smoked paprika) or cumin
cilantro for the top (which I forgot to photograph)

Mash the avocado with a fork with some lemon juice and sea salt.

Spoon into hard boiled eggs, that have been halved (yolk discarded).

Sprinkle some pimenton on top and garnish w/ a cilantro leaf.

Use the yolks in your next salad dressing. Just whiz in a blender, they act like raw but no worries and yes you can freeze cooked egg yolks. Also good mixed in an Italian Salsa Verde to top a poached cold mussel salad.

Use the egg yolks to make...tastes-like-chicken guacamole? teehee too.

I literally JUST threw out some hard boiled eggs yesterday because it had been a few days and I had no idea what to do with them. Oy! Next time, they are getting guac'ed.

What a novel idea - good protein (eggs) and good fat (avocado). LOVE avocadoes, although lately the ones I've been buying you have to eat rather quickly as they are very ripe. Definitely trying this recipe out.

My daughter made these for me but I think she used the yolk and mixed it all together.
