BLT Stuffed Avocado by Farmgirl Gourmet
~:: Farmgirl Gourmet ::~
Growing up in California, I ate avocados all of the time. In fact, my favorite sandwich of all time is a BLTA. Crisp bacon, crunchy lettuce, juicy tomato and sweet avocados sandwiched between tangy sourdough bread with gobs of mayo will make me swoon every. single. time.
I was brainstorming with my husband about avocado recipes and his first contribution was “Bacon Wrapped Avocado”. Sounds interesting, but as a food blogger you have to consider the end photograph and I just kept visualizing a blob of brown bacon. Not so pretty, but I bet it would be incredibly tasty. Then I moved on to Avocado Creme Brulee, but it’s been done and I wanted something a little more “home cook friendly”. My next thought was an Avocado Panna Cotta (like this beautiful specimen from Winnie @ Healthy Green Kitchen) with something savory on top, but I just couldn’t wrap my mind around it completely. Then it hit me. What about incorporating the husband’s bacon & avocado idea into a a BLTA, but deconstructed?
