2 Ingredient Avocado Egg Salad





Introduction: 2 Ingredient Avocado Egg Salad

I love Avocado and I love eggs of all kind. I've been trying to mix up how I eat this pair recently and came up with a very simple combination that makes a great "salad" or spread! I've enjoyed mine on top of salad, as a dip for vegetables or between slices of bread.

Step 1: The Ingredients

1/2 Haas Avocado, ripe (ripe enough for Guac)

1 hard boiled egg


Step 2: Mash the Hard Boiled Egg

Using the fork mash the egg into a paste like consistency.

Step 3: Peel and Dice the Avocado

Remove avocado from the peel (I used a spoon for this). Turn the avocado over and cut it into cubes (I did vertical strips and then horizontal.)

Step 4: Add Avocado and Mash

Also add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5: Thoroughly Mix the Two Together

This is a good serving size for one sandwich or a snack!

    I did it!

    It is excellent. A perfect blending of two different tastes.

    Thank You,


    I made it and I made it again and again and again. It's very very good.

    Thanks for shearing.

    Sounds like it would make a good base for a lot of different flavor variations - a little cilantro, for instance.

    Cilantro is great! I LOVE bacon with it too!

    Sabreno, I'm having some people over tonight and I'm gonna make up a big batch of this, split it into four parts, create different "variations" (love the bacon idea, and gonna do one with baby shrimpies) - and put it all out in a divided dipping bowl for people to snack on. If my party doesn't make the front page of the New York Times I shall have words with their food editor.

    I feel like one with pimento cheese might be an interesting combo! Good luck at your party!

    It went very well and the dip was a hit, especially the versions with cooked baby shrimp and crab meat. I did add a dash of lemon juice to keep the avocado green, and mixed in the seafood ingredients just before serving. I kept the serving dish on ice. None of it lasted long enough to know if the lemon trick worked or not!

    "Sabreno"?? Sorry, SabrenA!

    Two days ago I was wondering if such a thing existed. Now, boom, here it is with instructions! Looks yummy!

    It is my favorite! Let me know what you think if you try it!
