10 Ways to Make Ordinary Deviled Eggs Extraordinary

Each Easter, my family and I dye hard-boiled eggs with the standard grocery-store dyeing kit. My mom then hides them around the house for our Easter egg scavenger hunt/overly competitive holiday tradition on Easter morning.

After we all run around the house in hopes of being the Easter egg hunt champion of the year, my mom puts the eggs to good use and makes deviled eggs. Like every other house in America, I know we are not the only ones who make deviled eggs to enjoy for the remainder of the weekend.

As good as the original recipe for deviled eggs is, it's always fun to spice things up and make creative and unordinary versions. Here are ten deviled eggs recipes you can whip together this Easter for a fun twist on the basic recipe.

10. Avocado Deviled Eggs

As we all know, avocados are creamy and smooth, so they work well as a substitution for mayonnaise in deviled eggs. Instead of mayonnaise, use about one and a half to two avocados, and instead of mustard, use about two tablespoons of ranch dressing and a tablespoon of sour cream. Blend these ingredients with the egg yolks so that the mixture is creamy and smooth. Add a little bit of lime juice, just as you would with guacamole. Finish by adding chopped shallots or onions, and salt. Pipe into the egg whites and you're done.
