Avocado Deviled Eggs Ingredients
- 6 Eggs
- 3 Tbs Mayonaise
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
- 1/8 tsp Salt
How to Make Avocado Deviled Eggs
- Add one cup of water to your Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker.
- Place your eggs on a rack, or on the trivet that came with your Instant Pot.
- Set it to manual pressure for 5 minutes.
- After the cooking has finished, give it a natural release for 5 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure.
- After the eggs have cooked, use a slotted spoon to place them directly into an ice bath.
- The ice bath is what helps the eggshells to peel off perfectly.
- Peel your eggs and slice them in half. Set the yolks aside, in a bowl.
- In the bowl, add your avocado, mayo, cheese, salt, and pepper.
- Mash with a fork to combine.
- Place the filling into a Ziploc bag and then snip off one of the bottom corners.
- Pipe the filling into the eggs and garnish with remaining avocado slices and more parmesan cheese.
How to cook a hard boiled egg (Stove)
- If you don’t have an instant pot to use to cook your egg, you can use the stove pot and water method. Simply place your eggs in a pot and cover by 1 inch with cool water.
- Bring the pot of water to a boil and let it cook for 5-7 minutes.
- Use a slotted spoon to remove the eggs from the hot water, and place them into a prepared ice bath for several minutes.
- Peel and continue with recipe as directed.
What is a cold water/ice bath?
An ice bath is exactly as it sounds. A bath (usually a bowl or plastic food grade tub) full of cool water and ice. It’s used a lot in cooking recipes like blanching and boiling eggs.
What it does is immediately put a stop to the cooking process by rapidly cooling down that cooked item.
In this instance, the ice bath helps to not only stop the egg from cooking but to also shrink. It shrinks the egg inside of the shell, making it easier to peel.
These easy to peel eggs turn out perfect almost every time- like magic.
Are Avocado Deviled Eggs Keto Friendly?
Yes, they are! Avocados are full of good healthy fats and packed full of great nutrition, so these avocado deviled eggs are perfect for a healthier lifestyle.
How to store Hard Boiled Eggs
You can store hard boiled eggs in the fridge inside of a ziploc bag or sealed container. You can store them both with or without the shell as well.
Although, they will last longer with the shell in place.
This is great news for those wanting to boil eggs a day or so in advance!
How long do Hard Boiled Eggs Last
I recommend not storing hard boiled eggs with the shells for more than a week. Without the shell, the eggs are best used within 3 days.
Any longer than that and shelless eggs will sweat and become rubbery or gross.
Plus storing hard boiled eggs in the shell prevents the whole fridge from smelling.
