BLT and Avocado Egg Salad (Paleo)

We all have our OCDs, right? Some just happen to be more, ummm, quirkier (?) ones then others.

Like when I was little and had to use the bathroom, I HAD to lock the door, jiggle the door knob to make sure it was locked, and then peek behind the shower curtain to make sure an axe murderer/monster/sister wasn’t there.

And then there was the need to hold my breath and touch something white every time I passed a cemetery.

Not to mention my (still) OCD of rereading my favorite book series starting the first day of Spring every year.

Hey- don’t judge! We all have our quirks (some just worst then others 😉 )

And another mandatory quirk of mine? Having some form of green eggs and ham/bacon every Dr. Seuss day (which happens to be tomorrow!) And that means either having

1) Avocado Deviled Eggs

2) Natural-Colored Green Eggs (and Ham)

OR:

BLT and Avocado Egg Salad (Paleo)

BTL and Avocado Egg Salad (Paleo)

Ingredients:

4 hard boiled eggs

1 avocado

2-3 cooked strips of organic bacon, broken into pieces

2 medium tomatoes, diced

salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Chop eggs into small pieces and set aside. In a bowl, use a fork to mash up the avocado. Add in eggs and the rest of the ingredients and mix altogether. Let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour before eating (I think it tastes better when it sits, but I won’t blame you if you can’t wait 😉 )

  1. I totally forgot that tomorrow is Dr. Suess Day!! Thanks for the reminder! I used to help put on a “Green Eggs and Ham” breakfast every year to benefit Reach Out and Read in Kansas City, the Friday after Dr. Suess Day 🙂 I will definitely have to try one of your green eggs and ham recipes this week!

    • That’s great! I used to do something similar to that too and then when I used to work at a preschool, we’d serve green eggs and ham on Dr. Suess Day (some of the kids were too afraid to try the green eggs though!)

  2. As a former elementary school teacher~librarian, you have me curious. What is your favorite book series?

    • Hmmmm maybe I should have reworded that and said ONE of my favorite book series… I have so many! But the one I was referring to is Harry Potter… Not the most original answer, but it’s a classic for me 🙂

  3. What a delicious recipe! I’m one of those folks who asks to hold the bacon, but everything else looks so inviting. And anything with avocado and egg–I’m in! Thanks for sharing Deanna! 🙂

    • Thanks!! And I eat it without the bacon all the time too (I always forget to defrost in advance!) It still tastes just as good 🙂
