How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs
- Add your eggs to a sauce pan large enough that they have at least a little space between them.
- Fill with cold water until the it's at least an inch over the eggs.
- Bring to a boil over high heat. Once the water is at a full boil, turn off the heat, cover the pan with the lid, and allow the eggs to sit (still on the burner) for 10-12 minutes.
- When the time is up, drain the hot water from the pan and rinse the eggs with cool water. This will stop the cooking process and cool them down some so you can peel them.
Tips and Techniques for the Best Bacon Avocado Deviled Eggs
- Use a ripe avocado for easier mixing. If you want a super smooth filling, add all of the ingredients for the filling to the canister of a blender and process until smooth. You can then use a piping bag and fancy tip to fill the egg halves with, if desired.
- Use keto-friendly mayonnaise, if following a stricter diet.
- You can adjust the flavor of the filling by adding more or less mustard and mayonnaise. Give it a taste before filling your eggs and adjust to your liking.
- Store leftover deviled eggs in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
