Easter and hunting for Easter eggs?
Maybe all of these, but most of the Easter. For me Easter means chocolate eggs(chocolate bunnies too), fancy Sunday brunches, lots of hard boiled and decorated eggs and our family tradition deviled eggs, often with our leftover Easter eggs. Seems fitting, right? Of course. Contrary to classic deviled eggs this recipe is unique in that it doesn’t have mayonnaise and creaminess and healthy fats comes along with the avocado. The cilantro adds flavor while the red onion adds flavor and a bit of texture. No doubt, a keeper recipe!

- How to peel boiled eggs, the secret is they need to be cold, it’s that simple.
- Have you tried to peel a warm or hot egg? It looks like you butchered it, right?
- Either refrigerate them for 30 to 60 minutes after you boil them or put them under running cold water.
- Crack them all over on your counter using one hand and then shell will come right off. It’s that simple!
