Avocado Blessings

Our daughter and her family were blessed with a large amount of produce yesterday. She passed on two nice cantaloupes and two 5-count bags of large avocados to us. 

The cantaloupes needed to ripen a few more days, but the avocados were at peak and needed to be used. How was I going to use up ten large avocados in a hurry?

In talking with Amber about them a little while ago, I discovered that she had frozen her avocados in halves. I didn't realize that avocados could be frozen! Wow! 😲

After talking with her, and doing a little further research on the California Avocado site, I decided to turn our avocados into guacamole and freeze it that way.

I saved back two avocados to be eaten fresh. We love them in salads, made into deviled egg filling, baked in the oven with bacon and eggs (see recipe below), and a variety of other ways. 

The remaining eight avocados I turned into guacamole (avocados peeled, pitted, and mashed mixed with lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt to taste).

Then I divided it into half-cup portions and wrapped each portion tightly in cling-wrap and flattened to about the size of a deck of cards.

Out of eight large avocados I ended up with twelve pre-made packages of guacamole. 

To be used they just have to thaw in the fridge overnight.

1 avocado
2 eggs
2 strips of pre-cooked, crumbled bacon

Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Scoop out enough avocado to make a hole that matches the size of your egg.

Stabilize avocado halves by balancing them upright, and level, on the top of a muffin tin. Crack an egg into each avocado half and top with crumbled bacon. I added a sprinkling of black pepper over ours, but you can season, or not season, as you choose.

Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes or until eggs are cooked through.

Until next time...
