Ingredients (for 8 devils):
- 4 hard boiled eggs
- 1 avocado
- 2 teaspoons hot sauce
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- salt & pepper to taste
- 8 thin slices smoked beef
Peel and half the eggs and spoon their yolks into a bowl. Mass the yolks with the avocado, hot sauce, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Refill egg whites with the yolk mixture. Drape smoked beef slices on top, and serve!
You'll notice the recipe is just slightly modified from the original on MDA. A little less avocado, a little more smoked beef. They were very tasty, Tamara Baysinger, who came up with this recipe for MDA's challenge really had a great idea. The avocado replaces the original mayonaise very well. Plus my bf noted they are actually easier to make than plain old deviled eggs.
I did think he was smart not to use as much avocado as Tamara called for, because they were already very very rich. The smoked beef was nice as a topping, but anything salty would probably do. The yolk mixture doesn't have much taste of it's own, so I wouldn't go without a topping.
A little downside compared to our good old deviled eggs is that they don't keep even half as well. So if you do serve this at a party, mix them up right before you're getting started.
