So many holidays start with a good selection of appetizers; after-all it seems food brings everyone together to bring back and make new memories with friends and family. For us, every holiday includes the classic Devilled Egg but this year I wanted to make them a little more festive for the holiday season with these delicious Avocado Devilled Eggs that are packed full of flavour and presentation.
Avocado Devilled Eggs Flavour
Most often I see Devilled Eggs sliced in half but I wanted to present something a little different for the upcoming holidays and decided on this mini tree version with a green hue . They will melt in your mouth with a interesting smoked paprika flavour as an elegant pre-dinner appetizer.
In the past, my grandmother has always brought her devilled eggs to our family gatherings and there isn’t a devilled egg like hers. Maybe it’s just the thought that she has her personal touch in the food she brings but whatever the reason, devilled eggs bring back holiday memories. Now that my grandparents join us for Christmas every year, I’ve continued on the tradition with these Avocado Devilled Eggs and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
