No-Mayo Avacado Egg Salad

Earlier this week I made a mistake. I went to the grocery store without my list. I wasn't planning on going but on my way home from church I passed the store, and it's just stupid to backtrack after I get my list from home. I did pretty well with remembering everything, except mayo and baking soda. Which is fine. I hate mayo and only use it sparingly and I can't tell you the number of times I've needed baking soda. Ok I can; and they can be counted on one hand.

So I got home from the store and after unpacking the bags I was looking for something for lunch when I saw them. Two hard boiled eggs waiting to be eaten in an egg salad sandwich. (This is by far one of my favorite things to eat. I've already made a post (here) about another no-mayo egg salad recipe with plain greek yogurt.)

I was so excited with the prospect of a good lunch when I realized I didn't have any mayo, or plain yogurt. (I also had to go later in the week to buy baking soda to make Zucchini Bread.)

So I starting looking through Pinterest for another version and decided to try one from Bizzy Bakes.  Since it was just me I cut her recipe amounts in half.

What You Need:
2 eggs
1/2 avocado peeled and diced
2 tablespoons prepared Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder


Mash all ingredients in a bowl. Add dill or other herbs if desired.

My only criticism is just more of a personal taste. I do not care for Dijon mustard, but at least I gave it a try.  Next time I may try adding sour cream instead.


  1. I wonder if ranch dressing could be used instead of mayo or mustard? I'm not crazy about Mayo also and the thought of adding mustard to my precious avocado doesn't go over too well also. I pinned this recipe a few day's ago and plan on trying it today or tomorrow.. I love avocados!

  2. I'm going to make these and put them into the egg whites. Avocado deviled eggs. Using up some of my colored Easter eggs from the Grandkids.

  3. I Love it !!! Use a little mustard & chipoli mayo
