Living in California, we have access to avocados year-round and it’s one of my favorite ingredients in meals and snacks. I found a recipe that called for cracking an egg into each hole, and it was a total failure … it didn’t note that the avocados needed to be extra large or the eggs needed to be extra small or the whole white would run out in a blob. So I tweaked it a bit by scrambling the eggs and making guacamole from the scooped out flesh. Delish and healthy!
All of these ingredients are always in stock at our local Grocery Outlet. Click here for their Facebook Page. I highly encourage everyone to check out this store for two reasons: 1) The variety of products at great prices is amazing! (You won’t find a better deal on avocados outside of Mexico!) and 2) The owners, Ellie & Rita Zgheib, are huge supporters of our community. They have donated thousands of dollars of products to those in need and have sponsored donation drives for our Food Bank. Good people!!!
Variations: If you like a bit of spice, add hot sauce to the guac mixture. You can also use other varieties of cheese and top with fresh herbs. Instead of pork bacon you could use turkey bacon for a healthy twist.
