If you’d like to incorporate more healthy fats into your Keto diet, you’ll love this simple Keto Avocado Egg Salad recipe!
This Keto Avocado Egg Salad is not only delicious, simple, and affordable, but it’s also packed with protein and healthy fats making it an excellent Keto low carb lunch. It’s easy to get tired of eating plain old scrambled eggs on Keto, and Avocados can be equally boring to eat on their own. And that’s why this recipe is perfect – it’s a fun and delicious twist that combines both of these Keto food essentials!

Now let’s get back to the Keto Avocado Egg Salad! I used 6 eggs for the egg salad which makes 2 stuffed avocados (four halves). If you’re prepping this recipe for one, just adjust the ingredients accordingly (by cutting all the quantities in half).
For your first step, you’ll need to make the hard boiled eggs. I used my egg cooker this time, which is a kitchen staple in my house. You can make hard boiled eggs in a traditional pot of course, but it’s literally SO much easier with the egg cooker. You can set it and forget it and they’re done in minutes and cooked PERFECTLY every single time. No more wasted overcooked or undercooked eggs! This is the one I have if you’re interested:
That said, if you’re making your own hard boiled eggs it’s important to cook the egg right. I’ve had the most success by adding the eggs to the pot FIRST. Then add enough water to the pot so that the eggs are covered by at least an inch of water. Turn on your stove to high heat and bring the pot to a boil, then immediately shut off the heat and cover the pot with a lid. Leave the covered pot on the stove (without the burner on) and allow to sit for 10-12 minutes. Exact time will depend on the size of your eggs, larger eggs may take slight longer than smaller eggs.
Remove pot from stove and drain out the water. Stick the eggs in the fridge for a bit to allow them to cool, at least 20 minutes.
Now that your eggs are ready, follow the easy steps below to prepare your Egg Salad Stuffed Avocado. Sprinkle with bacon bits when you’re done (as an optional last step). I hope you enjoy this recipe!
