Nutrition Facts do not include garnish.
Make Ahead: Store filling in piping bag or zip baggy with no air for up to 2 days. Pipe or spoon filling into eggs, as needed. Filling may oxidize (turn brown) depending on temperature and exposure to air.
Once eggs are filled, the filling will stay green for about 8 hours, depending on temperature.
Storage: Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. To allow to stay greener for longer, keep filling stored separate in an airtight container such as a piping bag or zip baggy. Then spoon into an egg white just before serving.
