The salty bacon, with the creamy egg & avocado made these Avocado BLT Deviled Eggs the most delicious (Whole 30 approved) snack!
I started by boiling 6 eggs. I placed the eggs in a pan, covered with cold water, and set them over med high heat. Once it reached a boil, I covered the pan, and removed from heat. 15 minutes later I had perfect hard boiled eggs. As soon as they were done, I immediately ran lots of cold water over the eggs to stop the cooking process. Did you know that if you overcook your hard boiled eggs, you get a little green around the outside of the yolk. I guess a little green truly wouldn’t have mattered, since I was mixing the yolks with avocado, but I still wanted the perfectly cooked egg.
After they cooled, I peeled the eggs, sliced them in half, and removed the yolk. The yolk got mixed with some fresh chopped tomato, creamy avocado, salty bacon, and just a bit of salt & pepper. I served them on a bed of fresh chopped lettuce to also enjoy along with the egg. YUMMY!
