Deviled Avocados – For a twist on traditional deviled eggs, these avocados are filled with a mixture of eggs, bacon, feta cheese, green onions, avocados, and a cool delicious helping of yogurt that brings it all together.
Oh hi. Again. Twice in one day. Ah well… it’s what happens when you don’t pay attention to your editorial calendar…
Editorial calendar? makes me sound SO professional. I’ll take it!
Anyhew… Doesn’t this avocado look like it’s asking you to take a spoon to it and have a field day? ‘Cause you should!
This deliciousness that is before us today is the product of a retro recipe gone modern: Deviled Avocados.
We all know #ThrowbackThursday or #TBT is a popular trend on social media where people post photos of themselves from back in the day. BUT! Do you know what’s better than a TBT?! I’ll tell you! A TBP hosted by BHG! … You down with O.P.P.? Yeah, you know ME! 🎤🎤🎤
errrr! sorry. #notsorry. I can’t help it! If a word reminds me of a song, I bust out the tune. 😳
Since time travel hasn’t been invented yet, Better Homes and Gardens, myself, and a few other amazing bloggers are doing the next best thing; we’re having a Throwback Party and recreating retro recipes with a modern twist.

I’m way too enthusiastic for anything chic and vintage. 💗 True story. Thus, it’s no secret that I’m a fan of vintage food. Baklava, anyone? Or even better: Citrus Berry Terrine! Don’t judge. Jellied fruit is pretty. Yes, it is! AND delicious.
Here’s the thing, though, about my Deviled Avocados. At first, I didn’t think I was going to be crazy about ’em. I happen to like my egg salad in a bowl, not even a croissant, but considering to throw it all in an avocado shell?!? Heck, why not! I mean, we’re talking about the incredible foursome: avocados, eggs, feta and bacon!
My mom was also over the day that I made this. She prefers the classics, especially deviled eggs, so I had to really convince her to try these avocados. At first, she was a straight up “NO!”.
I was like “OMG Mom, tryyyy it! It’s sooo goooood!” and then I’d take another bite and be all “WOW! I can’t believe you won’t even try it!!” and then she finally tried it! AND she loved it. And then we made more to share with the rest of the fam.
Now you should make it happen, too! In the meantime, hop over to your social media channels and search the hashtag #BHGParty to see tons of other recipes and ideas. You can also see the complete roundup of Vintage Recipes at Better Homes and Gardens.
