Guacamole Stuffed Eggs are a fresh version of everyone's favorite comforting snack, it's surprising how a little touch-up like adding avocado, garlic salt and lemon really tops them. Serve them on game days and during spring break such as Easter, Easter, and Cinco de Mayo.
Can we admit it? Stuffed eggs are the best ~ I always cheer up when I see these little snacks waiting for me at a party.
There is nothing like the experience of sinking your teeth into a perfect egg. The creaminess of the filling, the silky texture of the egg … it's not about whether you want one, it's how many You want?
How to Boil the Perfect Egg Method # 1
- Start with fresh eggs at room temperature.
- Boil a pot of water.
- Gently lower the eggs, one by one, into the boiling water. Set the timer for 8 minutes.
- Let the eggs boil gently, lowering the heat a little if necessary.
- Turn off the heat after 8 minutes, cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
How to Boil the Perfect Egg Method # 2
- Start with the eggs from the fridge.
- Put the eggs in a pot and cover them with water.
- Bring to a full boil, then turn off the heat, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes.
So now you have your perfectly boiled eggs, but we all know that that's only half the battle!
How to easily peel eggs (even super fresh ones)
- Drain and rinse the freshly boiled eggs in cold water for a couple of minutes.
- With the eggs in a dry frying pan, shake the pan and eggs vigorously from side to side so that the eggs hit each other and the sides of the pan. Don't be afraid ~ the small crack net will make stripping very easy!
- Peel the eggs under running water, the shells will practically fall off.
Stuffed eggs can be made ahead of time. I like to put them together the morning of my party and keep them (loose!) Wrapped in the fridge until needed. If you are going to garnish, do so just before serving, and serve cold.
My mom made her stuffed eggs the old-fashioned way, and just filled them with a spoon, nothing fancy. But if you want to try a bit of a high look, put the guacamole in a pastry bag with a large tip. It is very easy to fill each egg with a twist of your hands, and they look so pretty. I used the same large puff pastry tip to put the mashed potatoes in my Cottage cake, and I love the effect. Note: I used the Wilton 6B Open Star Tip for my eggs

Makes 12 stuffed eggs
- 6 extra large hard-boiled egg shells were removed
- about 1/2 cup of mashed avocado
- 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice more to taste
- 1-2 tablespoons mayonnaise depending on how stiff the mixture is
- salt or garlic to taste start with a pinch
Cut each egg in half lengthwise and remove the yolks.
Mix the freshly mashed avocado with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Put the yolks, mayonnaise, and avocado in a small bowl. Use an immersion blender to mix the mixture until smooth and creamy. Season with salt or garlic to taste. Add more lemon if desired.
Alternatively, you can mix the mixture in a small food processor, scraping down the sides of the machine as needed.
Place a pastry bag with a large star tip and fill the bag with the mixture.
Place the filling in the hollowed egg halves.
Garnish with chopped chives.

Make these guacamole stuffed eggs your own ~
- How about a pinch of crumbled bacon on top instead of chives? Mmm O try the finely chopped jalapeños.
- Not a fan of guacamole? Try adding an equal amount of hummus.
Thanks for fixing!
