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

Tools:
Fork
Bowl

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,

    Mickey

    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!

    OK, I made some and it was delicious! I ate mine with corn chips. I did add just a whisper of mayo to the eggs as I mashed them, and then a bit of black pepper. Good Stuff!

    Putting lime juice or lemon juice in anything avacado keeps the pretty green color and prevents the whole lot from turning brown. I am not sure if vinegar does the same thing, but I suspect it does. This combo sounds delicious. Perhaps some finely chopped green onions would be a nice garnish for the dips? Really nice Instructable.

    While many are "hacking" your recipe I'll join that group..
    A little white pepper and vegan mayo.. Maybe..

    We have not avocado ( ´^ิω^ิ`)

    I make something similar with egg, cubed avacado, tomato, s&p, with either lime juice or balsamic vinegar. Its more a summertime thing, but awesome!

    Summertime!!

    Sounds delicious! My husband isn't too much into tomato but he loves lime juice, we'll have to try it.

    I've made this before, but with the addition of salt, pepper, and lemon juice. makes a good sandwich so long as the bread is toasted.

    Simple and looks delicious! I will definitely try this - thanks for sharing :)
