This is a ‘sister’ post to “Stuffed Guacamole Supreme“, if you missed it… check it out! Below are recent pictures of another ‘stuffed’ avocado.
I fried bacon the other day and just had to ‘stuff’ this avocado with it. I liberally added salt and “Slap Ya Mama” cajun spice. :) I must add this picture (below) of Arya! While I was taking pictures she came up and expressed her approval!
Now for the ‘full version’ of the recipe. :)
1) Removing the Meat of the Avocado – this can be done using a spoon but I like using an ice cream ‘scoop’.
A) Because it’s easier
B) Because I don’t use the scoop for ice cream anymore. :)
2) Making Guacamole – making Guacamole is so easy. It can be as simple as mashing an avocado, adding lime juice and garlic… and it’s awesome! Click here for a post on how I make Guacamole.
Once you make it or buy it (not recommended), fill up the two ‘bowls’ approximately half full. You can fill them up more if you are not going to add the burger.
Place in the refrigerator to ‘chill’ while you … cook YOUR MEAT! :)
3) Cooking the Meat – In this post I grilled burgers and fried bacon… it was a great combination. I would bet that any beef, pork or poultry meat would do just fine.
After cooking the meats I crumbled up the burger and cut the bacon into bite sized pieces.
4) Chopping the Veggies – while the meat is cooking, prepare your veggies. I only used Roma Tomatoes, so I diced them up. Onions and especially green onions would be a great addition to this recipe next time. :0
5) Filling the ‘Bowls’ – Now is the fun part… Here is a bowl of bacon, burgers and tomato.

6) Avocado Salad? This next picture is of the “Avocado Salad”. It is simply the leftover guacamole with ground beef, bacon and tomato all mixed together.
While this may not LOOK too appetizing… it tasts so good. In fact, if you wanted to mix all the ingredients together you certainly could. Think add cheese on top before broiling to melt the butter. :)
There you have it!!! … yet another low carb, gluten free, diabetes friendly recipe.
