I’m convinced deviled eggs are the perfect appetizer. For our Easter gathering, I am preparing these Chipotle Bacon Deviled Eggs for the occasion. They have just the right amount of kick from the chipotle seasoning, sweet & salty flavor from the bacon and creamy egg yolks from my perfect hard boiled eggs.
I like to think of myself as a professional deviled eggs maker. LOL. Is there such thing? When I first started out this blog, I shared my recipe for Avocado Deviled Eggs. The pictures are hideous but this is still one of my favorite recipes. I love that it is a no mayo added recipe which is perfect for those of you watching your diet. I shared the recipe with one of my friends doing the Whole30 diet. She loved and I take that as a big compliment since she isn’t normally a fan of deviled eggs.
Give this recipe a try or make the avocado version for your Easter menu or just because you love deviled eggs. I make deviled eggs at least 2x per month. Even my toddler is into deviled eggs and we all know how picky toddlers are about food. If I’m not careful, deviled eggs don’t make it to the table. When I make them for a function, I always make 2 patches. One for the event and the other for the deviled egg devourers in my house. Baby E was staring at these the last time I made them. He’s already a fan of eggs so I am sure he will be snatching a few of these very soon.
