Bacon Baked Avocado

Image

Honestly, I am not sure what I LOVE more…Bacon or Avocado!  With this recipe, you don’t have to choose and that makes it another favorite at my house.  This was derived from my baked potato cravings…since I limit my starches (potatoes)…I needed something to fill the void!  These work fantastic as a appetizer or as a side dish.

SUPER EASY!!

What you will need:

  • 2 ripe (but firm) Avocados
  • 6-8 strips of cooked Bacon (I prefer thick cut)
  • 1.5 c cheddar cheese
  • Greek yogurt

How it’s Done:

  1. Preheat oven to 400*
  2. Half and pit the Avocados
  3. Cook Bacon (note: I bake mine in the oven – see instructions at the bottom)
  4. Chop Bacon and fill each avocado half as full as possible
  5. Top bacon and avocado with cheese
  6. Bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes (or until cheese is bubbly)
  7. Remove and top with Greek Yogurt and serve!

 

Baking Bacon

  • Line a rimmed** cookie sheet. with parchment paper, place strips of bacon on sheet.
  • Turn the oven to 400 degrees and place bacon in oven immediately (do not preheat)
  • Bake for 20-25 min, remove and let cool on paper towels to soak up extra grease

**A rimmed cookie sheet may seem to be common sense BUT you would be surprised!  I have heard of one too many grease fires, and I don’t recommend it!
