Recipe for Baked Avocados...such a simple appetizer recipe with bacon, mayo, spice, and lemon that absolutely wows guests!
Ok, stay with me. If you've never had a baked avocado before, it sounds disgusting.
3 ripe avocados, halved and pitted
Juice of 1-2 lemons
⅓c light mayo
2 tablespoon chili sauce (This makes it pretty spicy...cut down on this if you need to.)
5-6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
Take your halved, pitted avocados and, with a spoon, hollow out a little bit more of the hole for the pit. Take this extra avocado meat and put it in a bowl. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the avocado halves and put them, hole side up, on a cookie sheet.
Into the avocado meat, mix in the mayo, chili sauce, and bacon (sausage works great too!). The sauce should be a coral color from the chili sauce. Divide this mixture among the avocado halves.
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 425 degrees, until the mayo mixture is crispy on top and the avocado meat is just starting to get soft.
