Makes: 12 halves

Ingredients: 

  • 6 large Mt Pleasant Farm Eggs
  • 1 dash Georgia Farms Olive Oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 2-3 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp minced Dodd’s Poblano
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon Old bay
  • 4 strips Dehydrated Edwards Ham and Crispy Edwards Bacon, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh chives, chopped

 

Directions: 

  1. Slice HB eggs in half lengthwise and carefully remove yolks.
  2. Place yolks in a large bowl with XVOO, avocado, Poblano, Old Bay, half the bacon, and half the chives; mash until smooth.
  3. Spoon mixture in to a plastic bag with Large Star Tip, squeeze out the air, and seal. With scissors, snip off one of the corners of the bag by ½ inches to create a piping bag. Pipe yolk mixture in to egg white halves liberally add a little extra filling to “over-stuff” each egg white).
  4. Garnish each with ham and chives.
