  • 6 eggs
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons ripe avocado, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 6 pecan halves, chopped fine
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced chives
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 6 grinds black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Garnish: paprika and chopped parsley


Place eggs in a saucepan and cover them with an inch of water. Cover with a lid and bring water to a simmer. Turn the stove off and let eggs sit covered in hot water 16 minutes. Remove eggs from the pan and sit them in a bowl of cold tap water 5 minutes to cool. Remove shells by tapping them on the counter to create a crack and then peeling them under running water.

Slice eggs in half lengthwise and pop yolks out; set whites aside. Place yolks in a bowl and mash them with the back of a spoon until smooth. Mash avocado the same way and add to yolks. Add remaining ingredients and mix well with a spoon. Use a small mellon baller, teaspoon, or pastry bag to fill the whites with the yolk mixture. Garnish with paprika and chopped parsley.
