Avocado Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs might be one of the oldest party snacks in the book, but there’s a reason they’ve stuck around for as long as they have: they look festive and they’re delicious. I’m hosting a dinner party for a couple of friends tonight and alongside my usual horseradish-and-mayonnaise deviled eggs I’m also serving these beauties with a zesty lemon and avocado stuffing. The recipe given here is a very basic one, but there’s nothing to stop you from going full-blown guacamole.ย

  • Garnish with a few slices of red chili or with a dash of (hot) smoked paprika.
