Bacon Stuffed Avocados Ingredients
Four medium ripe avocados
8 or 10 slices of your favorite bacon, cooked crispy before being crumbled
Dash of lime juice
½ cup of margarine or butter
¼ cup of light or dark brown sugar (the dark provides a richer molasses flavor)
¼ cup of white wine vinegar
¼ cup of chopped garlic
½ teaspoon of salt or salt substitute
Bacon Stuffed Avocados Instructions
Slice the avocados in half, lengthwise and scoop out enough avocado flesh to create a small bowl. Set aside
Place the scooped out avocado flesh in a mixing bowl, and add the crisp crumbled bacon. Mash gently.
Spoon this mixture back into the avocado halves and sprinkle with lime juice. This is to prevent the avocados from browning.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Stir occasionally until this mixture is smooth and the sugars are dissolved.
Pour the hot mixture over the stuffed avocado halves and serve immediately.
This is a great recipe when you want something that is truly different than what you normally eat. The flavors combine for a wow factor not normally seen in a side dish, thanks to this winning combination of flavors and rich syrupy garnish. The prep time is surprisingly short, only twenty minutes, and this bacon inspired recipe is quite satisfying.
