This is not my idea, but I am so going to try, this avocado has become a extreme favourite of mine this summer, and I wanted to share it with you all.
Instead of putting avocado on your BLT sandwich, how about putting your BLT sandwich into your avocado? Not only does that mean fewer carbs—this gorgeous appetizer, side dish, main dish, snack, lunch, however you want to enjoy it—is unbelievably delicious! Simply peel an avocado and stuff it with bacon, tomato and all of your favorite sandwich toppings!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and gather your ingredients.
2 large avocados
Fresh lemon juice
1 Roma tomato, seeded and cubed
1 cup cubed French bread
1/2 cup finely chopped spinach leaves
1/4 cup cooked crumbled bacon
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Prepare the Avocados
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and carefully remove the peel. Rub the outsides of each half with some fresh lemon juice. This will help them maintain their nice color. Set aside.
Add Remaining Ingredients to Bowl
In a medium mixing bowl, add all remaining ingredients.
Stir to Combine
Mix everything together.
Stuff the Avocados and Bake
Stuff the avocados with as much of the filling as you can fit, allowing the filling to come up over the sides a bit. Place the avocados on a non-stick baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until the filling has turned a light golden brown.
