It’s May the 4th, also known as National Star Wars Day! Instead of playing dress-up, which is a tradition in our house, I thought it would be fun for us to make a little Star Wars-inspired treat. Since these Baby Yoda deviled eggs turned out so cute and were such a hit, I had to share them with you!
If you love hard-boiled eggs and avocado, you’ll love these Baby Yoda deviled eggs! They are the perfect combo and look so much like Baby Yoda if we do say so ourselves.
The ingredients are pretty straightforward. We use Haas avocadoes, the smaller version because we prefer the taste of them. On the day you plan to make these, you’ll want the avocadoes to be dark brown/black and just slightly mushy when you squeeze them. If you buy them before they are ripe, it could take a few days for them to ripen up a bit so plan ahead!
You can also stick the avocadoes in a brown paper bag, shut it and store it on your kitchen counter. While this might still take a few days, depending on how green they are, we have found that to speed up the process a bit.
When you make these Baby Yoda deviled eggs, you’ll want to create them just before serving. If you leave them out, they will likely turn brown, as avocadoes tend to do when the air hits them.
If you are a fan of saving time, you’ll want to get the Dash Everyday Egg Cooker. It’s definitely one of the most used items in my kitchen. My kids love it because they don’t have to ask me to make hard-boiled eggs for them. It’s so easy they can do it themselves!
It delivers perfectly cooked eggs in less time than it takes to boil water on the stove. Eggs cook in minutes with the touch of a button, and the auto-shut-off feature means you never have to worry about overcooking. Best $$ you’ll spend!
Once the light turns off, just pull out the eggs and place them in a bowl with ice water or into the fridge. They are much easier to peel when they are cool.
Once the eggs are peeled, make sure that you carefully cut them in half, lengthwise. Depending on how fragile they are, you should be able to pop out the yolks into a bowl or use a spoon to carefully scoop them out.
Once you have mixed your yolk, avocado mixture, it’s time to assemble the Baby Yoda deviled eggs. The easiest way to get the mixture into the egg halves is to use a piping tool.
I personally use this decorator tool. It’s super easy, though it does require you to clean up. I prefer that over the disposable option.
If you prefer to use what you have on hand, you can also use a plastic resealable bag. Fill it with your mixture and snip a small hole at the tip. Then you can squeeze the mixture, slowly and carefully into the egg.
I use whole black peppercorns for the eyes and we eat them that way, but if you are concerned about the kids eating them whole, you can always tell them to pull them off once they’ve admired Baby Yoda. You can also use small pieces of black olives or capers.
The steps in the photos above, show exactly how I make these adorable Baby Yoda deviled eggs.
Step 1: Hard-boil the eggs.
Step 2: Slice each egg in half (lengthwise) and carefully remove the yolks.
Step 3: In a medium bowl, mash together yolks, avocado, lime juice, salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder until fully combined.
Step 4: Using a piping tool, pipe the mixture into the center of each egg half.
Step 5: Add two whole black peppercorns to each egg, for the eyes.
Step 6: Slice the snow peas in half and place one on each side of the eyes, on each egg half. Sprinkle with extra salt.
Now that you know a little bit about these baked green velvet donuts, I’m excited to share our recipe.
