Bacon Avocado Cups Recipe
These avocado cups filled with bacon are sinfully delicious. Almost too delicious. Like so delicious that I could eat these every single day for the rest of my life and be blissfully happy.
I love serving these as a fun appetizer or side dish because everyone raves over them. I’ve served these to people who don’t even like avocado and they fall in love with them and ask for the recipe. That’s how good these babies are.
I’ve also been known to eat these avocado cups a few times a week for my lunches. All the good fats from the avocado keep me fueled for hours at a time and my hair and skin reap the benefits. Sometimes when I’m in a hurry, I leave out the bacon (crazy, I know) and just eat the avocado covered with the balsamic glaze. Dee-lish.
You’ve got to try them and then tell me that I’m not crazy and that you think they are utterly delicious and that you could eat them everyday, too.
Bacon Avocado Cups with Balsamic Glaze
Serves 2-4, recipe can easily be cut in half, doubled, etc.
4 slices of bacon, cooked
fresh lemon slice
3 T butter
1 T balsamic vinegar
1 tsp minced garlic
Cut your avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pits. Rub the insides of the avocado with a few drops of lemon juice from a fresh lemon slice (If you are eating these right away, you can leave out the whole lemon part – the lemon just helps keep the avocado from turning brown). Crumble the bacon and stuff it into the avocado half where the pit was – use one piece of bacon per avocado half.
Over low heat, melt the butter, balsamic and garlic. Stir constantly for about a minute or two until the mixture is boiling. As soon as it boils, remove from heat and drizzle all over the avocado halves. Enjoy!
