"Although I cannot lay an egg, I am a very good judge of omelettes." -George Bernard Shaw

The refrigerator light goes on...

Deviled eggs are really simple to make and can be a big hit at your picnic or cocktail party. The term "deviled" came from recipes in the 18th century that used mustard or other spices in the recipe. By the early 19th century, the term "deviling" came to be synonymous with making food spicy. These days that means adding mustard to the yolks to get traditional deviled eggs. Deviled Eggs »

Place the water in a small pan over high heat. When the water is boiling, place the eggs (in the shell) gently in the pan and cook at a boil for three minutes. Turn off the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 12 minutes.

Remove the eggs from the hot water and add to a bowl of ice water.

While the eggs are cooling, whisk together the avocado, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

After the eggs are cooled, peel them and pat dry with a paper towel.

Using a fork, mash the egg yolks together with the avocado until smooth.
