Avocado Egg Salad (No Mayo)

Avocado Egg Salad--Sandwich[1]

This is a super easy, healthy way to make egg salad.  So creamy and yummy!  I’ll also tell you below the fool-proof way to make beautiful yellow-yolk hard boiled eggs.

6 eggs, hard boiled
1½ ripe avocados, peeled and mashed
Juice of one lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash of cayenne (more to taste)
1 Tablespoon toasted sesame seeds (optional)

There are so many ways to make hard boiled eggs, and people swear by all of them.  But if you’re like me, you haven’t found a way that works every time without getting the green rim on the yolk.  Until now!  I had heard of this method before, but since I tried it myself, I get perfect eggs every time.

PERFECT HARD BOILED EGGS:  Put the eggs in a large pan and cover them with water.  Place the pan on medium-high heat and bring the water to a “rolling” boil.  Turn off the heat, cover the pan and leave it on the burner 12 minutes.  Then run cold water over the eggs until cool.  Look how pretty!
