Avocado Loaf

If you’ve been with us for very long, you know that I am a huge fan of avocados, not just for their nutritional value but for the taste as well. I am however a little disappointed lately with their flavor, I don’t know if they pick them way too green or what the problem is. I sure would love to grow my own, but I don’t think they would do too well this far north; I’ll have to do some searching on my computer and see what I can come up with! Anyway, this is a nice recipe to make to go along with that nice hot cup of coffee in the morning or for a little pick-me-up in the afternoon.

So yummy!

So yummy!

Deviled Eggs Avocado Style

This is not one for us, but thought someone out there would love to give it a go as I was told they were very good. Although I love my avocados and Kenny loves his deviled eggs, neither of us are fans of the other. I have been making deviled eggs for years, but only for when company comes or just for a treat for husband when we have something barbequed on the grill.


Deviled Eggs Avocado Style
 
Ingredients
  • 1 dozen eggs, hard boiled and peeled
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teas salt
  • ¼ teas fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teas dry mustard
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
Instructions
  1. Cut avocado in half and remove the seed; scoop out pulp and mash.
  2. Mix avocado with the garlic, sale, pepper, mustard and mayonnaise.
  3. Cut eggs in half, remove yolk and mash well adding this to the avocado mixture; mix well.
  4. Fill egg whites with the avocado mixture and sprinkle with paprika or top with a little piece of pimento.

 

I’ll just stick to my avocados and Kenny said, he’ll just stick to his plain deviled eggs. Hope you enjoy this strange mixture as it would be pretty on the Christmas dinner table!
