Christmas is sadly over so I’ve switched gears and started thinking about my New Year’s Eve party. This appetizer will work for any occasion, if you want it for Christmas consider adding a few strategically placed cranberries for a festive twist, or use chives for a summer barbecue! Whatever the occasion these Easy Avocado Devilled Egg Cucumber Stacks are easy to make and so yummy you won’t have any left over!
The recipe does take some prep, you have to boil the eggs like you would traditional devilled eggs, but instead of cutting them length wise you need to cut them in circles. Check out the pictures for help. Once the eggs whites are in circles and the yolks are separated you just need to blend the yolks with the avocado (and a few other ingredients) then set them up and you’re good to go.
Whatever the occasion these Easy Avocado Devilled Egg Cucumber Stacks are easy to make and so yummy you won’t have any left over!
4boiled eggswhites cut into rings, yolks removed and separated
1avocadopeeled, seed removed
1/4tspground black pepperto taste
1cucumber sliced, diagonally
Boil the eggs until hard boiled, about 10 min. Once boiled place the eggs into a pot of cold water and once cooled, peel them.
Cut the eggs into round slices. Try not to break the rings. The egg yolks should fall out as the rings are cut. Set them aside.
Cut the avocado in half, peel it and remove the seed. Slice the avocado.
Place the egg yolks, avocado, mayo, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix them together. You can use a fork for a lumpy texture, or a food processor for a smooth, creamy texture. I used a fork.
Slice your cucumber into thick slices, in a diagonal direction.
Arrange the prepared cucumbers on a platter, top the cucumbers with one egg white ring each, then add some of the avocado mixture to the middle of the egg ring.
Consider garnishing with chives, cranberries or paprika
Cut the egg whites into rings and separate the yolks. Cut the cucumber into slices, diagonally.
Using a fork to mix the ingredients will give a thicker consistency, see above. If you’re looking for a smoother texture, use a food processor.
