Scrumptious: Avocados stuffed with bacon

Shares

Capital Lifestyle has always been a great admirer of avocados.  What’s not to love when every serving is a creamy and delicious mouthful of twenty vitamins, mineral and nutrients?

Last time Capital Lifestyle featured a favourite recipe of the team, Shrimp Stuffed Avocado.  Delicious and easy, stuffed avocados are generally a great starter or snack.  For those that don’t particulary fancy shrimp or seafood for that matter, today’s recipe will definitely hit the spot – Avocados Stuffed with Bacon.

The creaminess of the avocados blends incredibly well with the saltiness and fat of the bacon…need I say more?

Ingredients

4 medium avocados, ripe, unpeeled

8 slices bacon, cooked crisp, crumbled

Lemon juice as needed

½ cup butter

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ cup white wine vinegar

¼ cup prepared garlic puree/paste

½ teaspoon salt

 

Directions

1)      Slice avocados in half lengthwise; schoop out only half avocado flesh from each piece, leaving a small “bowl” of avocado in each piece.  Place scooped avocado in a medium bowl; add bacon and mash gently.  Spoon mixture back into each avocado half, filling each side with the filling.  Brush with lemon juice to prevent browning.

2)      Combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat stirring occasionally.  Whisk mixture until smooth; pour over filled avocado halves.  Serve immediately.
