With one simple base and some imaginative add-ins and garnishes, there are infinite ways to trick out these retro bites.
- PLACE eggs in a single layer in a pot and add enough cold water to cover by 1 in. Boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 min. Immediately drain and rinse with cold running water to cool eggs completely. Peel eggs, then cut each in half lengthwise.
- DISCARD yolks. Stir mashed avocados, lime juice, wasabi paste and salt. Fill a piping bag or a small plastic freezer bag with yolk mixture, then cut off a corner. Pipe into egg whites. Top with cucumber, cilantro and sesame seeds.

- The fresher the eggs, the more difficult they are to peel, so choose the slightly older eggs in your refrigerator.
- To prevent a dark green ring from forming around the yolks, cool the eggs rapidly in running cold water as soon as they’re finished cooking.
- After draining and cooling eggs, gently crack them all over and keep them soaking in cold water, then start peeling from the large end.
- For smooth, clean edges, use a sharp knife to cut eggs in half. Avoid serrated knives.
- Use a whisk to mash yolks or put them through a sieve to keep them light and velvety. A piping bag fitted with a star tip will give your yolks a swirly, elegant finish.
