How to make these Avocado deviled eggs from scratch

Place the eggs in a saucepan and add cold water just enough to cover them.

Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Once bubbling, cover the pan and turn the heat off. Allow them to sit for 15 minutes, then immediately transfer to an ice bath. Once the eggs are cool, peel them straight away.

Cut the eggs in half, and gently remove the yolks. Place the yolks in a small food processor together with the remaining ingredients. Process until smooth, then transfer the mixture to a piping bag.

Pipe the filling into each egg half. Lightly sprinkle the deviled eggs with paprika. Serve and enjoy!

How to make the boiled eggs using your instant pot

Cooking hard boiled eggs in an instant pot is one of my favorite methods and you get perfectly boiled eggs. Here is how to make hard boiled eggs for your deviled eggs using your instant pot:

  • Turn on the Instant Pot. Place the metal basket at the bottom of the instant pot and add one cup of water.
  • Place the eggs on top of the metal basket and then set the instant pot on the “manual” cook mode. Next, close the pot and set the time for 5 minutes. Once the time is up leave them for another 5 minutes.
  • Release the steam by pressing the quick-release button. Wait until you can open the lid and transfer the eggs to an ice bath for 10 minutes. The icebath is necessary to cool the eggs down and prevent them from continuing to cook. It also allows easy peeling.

Recipe notes and tips

  • The serving size is one full egg. So two halves.
  • Use a sharp knife when cutting the boiled eggs in half.
  • To add the filling, use a piping bag for pretty and less messy-looking deviled eggs. If you do not have a piping bag, you can use a ziplock bag. Just cut the tip of the ziplock bag.
  • Cook your eggs using your preferred method, whether you choose boiling, steaming, or baking. The key is placing the cooked eggs in an ice bath afterward.
  • This is a great make-ahead recipe. If you plan to make these keto deviled eggs ahead, you can cook the eggs and make the filling but do not fill the eggs just yet until ready to serve. Store the filling in a ziplock bag or a container separate from the egg whites. 
  • You can easily double or triple this recipe for a larger crowd.
  • The yolk should be pale yellow and firm, but not dry. 
  • You may use mayo in place of Greek yogurt if your main diet is a high-fat keto diet.
