Grilled avocado. Who wouldn’t want to eat this?
This was the first recipe I pinned. And I knew someday I’d make it. If we ever had an extra avocado in the house. Who the heck has that? When did anyone ever go to the kitchen and say “Oh look! An avocado I have no use for!”?
Well evidently I am because that’s exactly what I found when I went to the kitchen looking for something to make for lunch.
Ok, well I didn’t have everything that that recipe called for because we are not Tabasco people. I did have some Dakota Buckaroo sauce. It’s this amazing sauce they were demoing at Walmart a while back. I haven’t found a meat that this doesn’t make more awesome and since we had nothing even close to the flavor I thought I’d give it a shot.
The cheese, for the record, is real Parmesan cheese, I just like the container for storage. A container I now need to replace because I got it too close to the broiler just after this shot when I added the second round of cheese.
The finished product was amazing. I could go with a little more of the sauce next time but I didn’t want to overdo it the first time around.
Grandpa gives them his vote of approval but I have just one word for the next time. Bacon. Oh yeah baby.
Snacks are wonderful. Even better when they’re quick and easy to make.
This is my lazy fall back dinner. It’s made from four ingredients and couldn’t be easier to throw together.
Assemble, grill, eat.
After a long day at work, when all you want to do is crash on the sofa and watch TV, this is the kind of comfort food I turn to: quick and delicious.
Grilled Avocado w Melted Cheese & Hot Sauce
Anna’s very own recipe. Serves 1 as a snack.
1 Tbsp Dakota Buckaroo Sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
¼ cup parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
1. Cut the avocado in half and remove seed. Pierce all over with a fork to help the sauce sink in.
2. Pour the sauce over each half, then top with lime juice and salt and pepper.
3. Sprinkle cheese in the cavity of each half and a bit over the rest of the avocado. Place under the broiler for about 2 minutes.
4. Top with remaining cheese and broil for another 2 minutes until completely melted and avocado warmed through. The next time I make it this will be where I sprinkle on some bacon bits.
Eat it while its hot.
I love how quickly this dish is ready. Since its best eaten hot this is going to be really easy to add into a meal at the last minute.
