  • Place 6 of the egg halves on a serving plate. Top each with 2 bacon pieces. Arrange spinach and tomato slices on top of the bacon.

  • Combine avocado, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Spread 1 tablespoon of the avocado mayonnaise on the cut side of each of the remaining egg halves. Sandwich the eggs together; skewer each with a wooden pick to hold the fillings in place. Garnish with ground pepper.
