Key ingredients & substitutions

  • Bacon – Cook the bacon on the stove or in the oven until crispy and chop it up before adding it to this recipe. In a pinch, use bacon bits.

    Three methods to make hard-boiled eggs

    There are three main ways to cook eggs perfectly in their shells. Boiling them on in a pot of water on the stove is the most common method but you can also use the pressure cooker or air fryer!

    • Stovetop method – If you’ve ever made hard-boiled eggs before, this is probably the way you’ve made them. It involves simmering or steaming the eggs in a pot of water on the stove 10-11 minutes. Then transferring to an ice bath too cool. This is a fool-proof method for making perfect hard-boiled eggs with egg shells that are easy to peal off. 
    • Instant pot – The instant pot is good for more than just making soup! Use it to cook eggs to perfection in just a few minutes. Pour water into the pot, place a rack in the bottom, and layer it with eggs. Place the lid on, set the time to 4 minutes, allow the steam to naturally release for 5 minutes, then carefully remove the lid and the eggs.
    • Air fryer methodCooking eggs in an air fryer may seem odd because there’s no water involved, but it’s a great method! Heat the oven to 270 degrees, place the eggs in a basket, and cook for 13-17 minutes.

    How to select a ripe avocado

    Creamy, delicious avocados arrive at the grocery store at varying levels of ripeness.

    For this recipe, you’ll need to use fresh avocados so you can either buy them before they’re fully ready or when they’re already ripe.

    If you buy them before they’re ripe, place them on the counter and allow them to ripen.

    To choose perfectly ripe avocados in the store, look for mottled green and mostly black skin. They should be soft to the touch when lightly pressed with your fingertips and the skin under the stem should be green.


    These are the most delicious deviled eggs without mayo and can easily be changed to fit your tastes and preferences. Here are some ideas to get you started.

    • Chop up the hard boil eggs and combine them with mashed avocado to make an avocado egg salad. This is a great idea if the egg whites come apart when removing the shell.
    • Add some garlic powder or onion powder to the avocado mixture for extra flavor.
    • Sprinkle the tops of the eggs with sliced green onions or minced red onion.
    • Add or subtract the cayenne pepper based on how spicy you want the eggs.

    Storage information

    These avocado bacon deviled eggs don’t last long because the avocado filling will turn brown after a few hours. They are best when prepared and enjoyed on the same day. The hard-boiled eggs can be made ahead of time, though.

    Cook the eggs up to five days ahead of time and store them with the shell in a carton in the refrigerator until the day you’re ready to assemble and eat them.

    Avocado Deviled Eggs: FAQS

    Will these deviled eggs turn brown?

    Yes, these healthy deviled eggs will turn brown because of the avocado. The lime juice slows this process but they won’t look as good the next day, although they're still safe to eat.

    Do I need to use mayo to make avocado deviled eggs?

    There's no mayonnaise needed to make these deviled eggs with avocado. The avocado mixture replaces the need for a mayo based center.

    What should I do with the yolks after boiling the eggs?

    Great news, the egg yolks are used to make the mashed avocado center. This means none of the hard cooked eggs are wasted and the yolk contributes to the flavor of this kid friendly food!
