    what and where can i get smoked beef? i want to make these because i currently just have carrots as a snack (started my plan this week) and don’t want to buy the wrong beef.

    • If you had a smoker, you could smoke your own beef, which would be preferable because a lot of commercial smoked meats have weird preservatives and flavorings in them. I’ve never seen smoked beef in Whole Foods, but you could ask at the deli meat counter or the bulk meats counter. You could sub the smoked beef out for smoked salmon or your favorite deli meat. Just be mindful of the added ingredients in conventional deli meats – opt for organic, naturally smoked or processed meats.

    thank you so much! i know trader joe’s sells roast turkey breast deli meat without nitrates. i just haven’t made this dish yet because i don’t want to accidentally ingest the wrong things. no room for a smoker in my teeny apartment but safe deli meats sounds like a plan :)

  3. This looks most excellent. I’ll be starting paleo in a couple of weeks, and trying to find a solid base of recipes to use before I find myself scrambling come dinner time! Hope to give this one a shot.

    these are SO good!!! I wish I had made a tripple batch!!

  5. the inherent problem w/ this recipe is that it is only calls for 4 eggs. clearly you aren’t planning on sharing!

  6. These rock! I changed a few things though. Instead of sea salt I used onion salt (onion flavor is awesome in guac) with a dash of celery salt. I also used lime instead of lemon. It works well! Enjoy!

    Some posts are for the wrong recipe. It would be nice to have pictures of the finished product. This recipe really surprised me. The next time we make deviled eggs, they will definitely have avocado in them.

    These were cool. Nice color, different flavor. The kids won’t eat them but that means more for me! (funny how the recipe calls for lemon but has lime in the pic) :p

    I was skeptical, but these were very good! I used a lot more hot sauce to get the flavor right for me.

  10. OMG..today i burnt some turkey bacon, broke it into pieces and added it to eggs..also use lime instead of lemon..now i get some crunch with the heat of franks hot sauce..amazing creation…

    These were so good. Amazingly my 5 year old gobbled them up. This one is a keeper and will be used often!

  12. It was amazing… And relish!!!!

    What is the serving size for a snack?

    I’m going to try it with onion salt, lime juice and cumin… Stay tuned…

  15. Okay these are surprisingly very good! It is a very weird mix, but I actually really like them and would for sure make them again. I would add extra hot sauce, but the kind I use isn’t entirely hot, either.

    Why do none of the recipe pages have nutritional information/ links? This info would be most helpful.

    • Shawny – All of the recipes have nutritional info links at the tops of the pages. You must be logged in to see the info, however. Here’s the info for this one.
