Deviled Eggs with Avocado

I know Easter is past and maybe this recipe would have been timely then but we enjoy deviled eggs year round so today I'm sharing these Deviled Eggs with Avocado.  Just a new little twist I've given them.

Last Sunday we had a beauty of a day - just perfect for hanging outside.  I knew I wanted to grill out and make a couple simple side dishes.  Besides making some crockpot baked beans (that recipe coming soon!), I said to the DIY Guy that I was thinking of making some deviled eggs and he enthusiastically agreed to that!

I changed up my usual recipe by adding a bit of pickle juice, adding a dash of hot sauce and topping with a piece of avocado.  Besides tasting great, they look a bit fancy too!

Yes you can just enjoy these at a home meal but these are also perfect for a picnic or a party!  When we do serve these at a party, they are one of the first items to disappear.  Make some for your next gathering to see if I'm right!
