Baby Yoda Deviled Eggs With Avocado

Baby Yoda Deviled Eggs

With all the holiday gatherings coming up, you might be wondering how to put a fun spin on some of the classic family-gathering foods. In honor of the second season of The Mandalorian coming out, we’re putting a geeky Star Wars spin on deviled eggs. We give you: Baby Yoda deviled eggs with avocado.

Who or What Is Baby Yoda?

“Baby Yoda” is a nickname given to a character in The Mandalorian. If you’re not a Star Wars fan, The Mandalorian is a live-action American space western on Disney+. It stars a mysterious, masked Mandalorian, a bounty hunter who lives by a stringent code. This Mandalorian is sent to kill a target, only to find his target is a small green creature that appears to be a child. Instead of killing the baby, the Mandalorian takes the helpless creature under his protection, incurring the wrath of several interested parties. The child looks like a miniature version of Yoda, a character from the original Star Wars movie series, thus the name “baby Yoda.”
