Guacamole Stuffed Eggs Recipe

Have leftover Easter eggs? Looking for a healthier option than the traditional dressed eggs with mayo? Want to draw a crowd (with very little effort)?

Putting avocado into eggs tastes surprisingly great and it’s a healthier way to make those eggs creamy! Everyone at your party will want to give ’em a try. My husband tested these and said “Mmmm;Β tastes like guacamole!” He’s a fan.

Ingredients for Guacamole eggs:

6 Large Boiled Eggs (click here for how to make the perfect boiled egg)
1 medium, ripe avocado
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp pressed garlic
1/8 tsp salt, or to taste
1 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
Smoked paprika to sprinkle over the top.

How to Make Avocado Stuffed Eggs:

1. Peel eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove egg yolks from halved eggs and place 3 yolks in a small bowl; discard the rest.

2. Add ripe avocado, lime juice (it will keep avocados from turning dark), and chopped cilantro.

3. Add 1/4 tsp onion powder and about 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper.

4. Press in 1 garlic clove and mash everything together with a potato masher or a fork. Add aboutΒ 1/8 tsp salt (I add my salt in the end so I can add it to taste).

5. Pipe the avocado mixture into the eggs in whatever design your heart desires. I used a large star tip. You can even do a simple, smooth design with a ziploc bag, or just spoon it into the eggs.

Inspiration for this wonderful recipe came from Skinny Taste and I Wash You Dry; thank you so much lovely gals! πŸ™‚

      Hi Chris, I don’t typically include macros because of the time constraint that I have but we are slowly converting all of our recipes to have nutrition label. You can see that on all of our latest posts. Reply

    Hi Natasha!
    How far in advance can I make these before they begin to turn brown? Can I make them 3 hours before the party, cover with plastic and store in the fridge?
    Thank you, absolutely love your recipes! Reply

      Hi Anna, yes that would work fine πŸ™‚ the lime juice helps to keep them from browning πŸ™‚ Reply

    Is Spanish paprika the same thing? Would it work instead of smoked paprika? And also, would it be fine to use lemon instead of lime juice, or a bit of both? Reply

      I think Spanish paprika would work and I prefer lime juice because lime juice pairs better with cilantro while lemon juice goes better with parsley, but if you don’t have lime juice, lemon juice is ok to substitute. Reply

      You could just use mayo instead and make regular stuffed eggs. here’s a good recipe. https://natashaskitchen.com/2012/04/10/dressed-eggs-recipe/ Yes, onion powder can be avoided; just leave it out. Reply

      That’s like making banana bread without bananas. Avocado is the main ingredient for Guacamole. Reply

    I made these tonight and they turned out great. I won’t be making them with mayo from now on. Avocado tastes so much better and it’s better for you. Thanks for the recipe! Reply

        I made salmon, cream horns (made zavarnoi krem) and these eggs from your site so far and loved all three. Next Friday I’m making the chocolate spartak cake for my daughter’s birthday party and hope it comes out as tasty as it looks πŸ™‚ Reply

    This looks yummy! Cant wait to try it. If I use all six of the egg yolks do I double the other stuff or does it all stay the same? Reply

    • Natasha

      It would stay the same. It’s just healthier (less cholesterol) if you only use 3 yolks. Reply

      How to utilize the remaining cooked egg yolks:

      Add one per serving to protein smoothies as bulk and thickener. Also, good as same when added to sauces, soups and stews. I have successfully subbed cooked egg yolks many times for starchy thickeners, like cornstarch, arrowroot, cassava/tapioca and agar agar.

    That’s a great recipe using avocados. Sometimes I am at loss what to do with them, besides salads and guacamole. Now, I can stuff them into eggs! πŸ™‚ Reply

    Wow! These eggs look amazing! Going to make some for my sister’s birthday party tomorrow. hehe. I have a question, I really wanted to make that baked vegetable ring I saw on your site, the one with tomatoes, zucchini and I think eggplant. That recipe seems to be gone from your website. I do see a tiny picture of it on your home page, to the left of your picture. It’s the veggies in a brown, ceramic dish with a lilac branch in the background. I really want to make this but can’t seem to find it. Can you please help? Thank you very much!!! Reply

        Natasha, thank you so much for your prompt response! I was looking under side dishes/vegetables and pretty much everywhere but dinner section. lol I was able to pick up all the ingredients on Saturday and make a whole pan of the healthy vegetable goodness! Mmm! Baking a second batch just for my husband and I today. =) Love your website!! And the avocado stuffed eggs… OMG! Let me just say that the only time I’ll make the old fashioned stuffed eggs again is when Avocados cease to exist. Thank you again for your inspiration. Many blessings to you! Reply

    Looks very yummy and healthy too:) Why not use all of the egg yolks?? Reply

      Thank you Katy :). Discarding some of the egg yolks, gives the recipe less cholesterol an makes it healthier, but you can include all of them if you like. Reply

    Yum, a healthier version of stuffed eggs. Can I make these one day ahead? Will the avocado stay fresh and not turn brown? Thanks Natasha for another great recipe, you are awesome! Reply

      They do start to turn more of an army green the next day but will still taste great. I recommend making them the same day; thankfully they are pretty easy to whip up πŸ˜‰ Reply
