Egg salad can get boring by itself, eaten with crackers, or in a sandwich day in and day out. However, add a little avocado and turn plain egg salad into this egg salad stuffed avocado! Now, you have a filling; nutrition packed meal that’s so good for you!
Eggs are one of my go-to ingredients for many of my meals. While most people think of eggs as a breakfast food, I think their versatility makes them the perfect ingredient for many recipes.
Because of their versatility, I nearly always keep two dozen eggs on hand at all times. If you think running out of milk is a problem at your house, try running out of eggs at mine! Nearly every week, I boil a dozen eggs for egg salad, pair them with avocados, or in the lunch box as a side/snack.
A while back, I shared my Hummus Stuffed Avocado and since, I’ve had many requests for more ways to stuff an avocado. And my friends, stuffing an avocado with your favorite egg salad recipe is super simple!
This lunch is one of my husband’s favorites. Well, since he eats man-sized portions, it’s more like a snack, but for me, it’s a meal.
When you pack food-to-go every day, you have to get creative. I’m all for packing nutrition-packed meals in our lunch bags so this egg salad stuffed avocado is just that! Nutrition packed and delicious! I mean, we can all use a little more avocado in our life, right?
