I love eggs. Boiled eggs were the first thing I learned how to cook. When I discovered deviled eggs, I was definitely hooked. Deviled eggs are like little vessels of goodness, in a small package and that’s exactly what this recipe for Chesapeake Crab and Avocado Deviled Eggs is.
The more I made these delicious eggs the more I ate them. Not to mention, they are ooh so creamy because of the avocado and the delicate crab on top is a perfect contrast.
This recipe is definitely a crowd pleaser and will take your deviled eggs reputation up a couple notches…at least.
But don’t you dare take my word for it.
Give them a try!
