Yes, you read that right. I wrapped bacon around slices of avocado and fried them up in a pan. They were soooo good. It really was very easy to make and one avocado and a small package of bacon fed the two of us. We ate some plain and then we took some and put them into a corn tortilla with lettuce and salsa. A bacon avocado soft taco. Oh, it was so fun. I’m starting to drool just typing about it. I may have to get busy on this one again. I’m definitely rolling this one out when our friends come over. You can take these little jems and attach them to a toothpick or skewer and arrange a fancy appetizer or hors d’ oeuvre.
Organic uncured bacon
Cut your avocado into wedge shaped slices. I got 8 slices from one avocado. For directions on how to select and cut avocados, please see Friday Foodie Fix- Avocado.
Next take a slice of bacon and wrap it around the avocado in a spiral direction. Take a toothpick and enter the avocado through the bacon on one end and out the other. If your slice is too long then you may need to do this on each end.
Place into a pre-heated skillet on medium high. Turn on all sides as each side of the bacon crisps. Once all of the sides are cooked, remove from pan and serve.
Give a little sprinkle of chili pepper or cayenne pepper and a tiny squeeze of lime. You can also sprinkle Sea Salt on top. Enjoy!
