Baked Avocado

Introduction: Baked Avocado

About: A guy that needs to build stuff.

My Wife is an Amateur Chef of Biblical Means.

Whenever I am "Low-Carbing" it, she makes these. Baked Avocados.

Enjoy!

A Side note, and I have not skin in this game, but I love Kinnakeet Clay. https://www.kinnakeetclay.com/

the Ramekins were purchased there.

Supplies

Besides a Kitchen, which I am assuming you already have.....

(4) Ripe Avocados

Hot Sauce

1 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1 Teaspoon each Black Pepper and Salt

1/4 Cup Sour Cream

Parmesan Cheese

1 Clove Garlic

Step 1: Set Your Oven to 350

Step 2: Cut the Avocados in Half, Remove the Pit

Step 3: Scoop Out the Flesh of the Avocado

Step 4: Do a Rough Mash on the Avocado.

Keep it chunky at this phase, if not, further blending of the other ingredients leaves you with a paste, and we like chunks.

Step 5: Grate 1/4 Cup of Parmesan Cheese and 1 Clove of Garlic Into the Avocado

Step 6: Add Sour Cream, Hot Sauce - to Your Taste and Half the Mozzarella

Step 7: Mix It All Together

Step 8: Fill the Avocado Skins With the Mixture

Cast Iron - Because a well seasoned cast iron anything beats modern cookware, hands down.

Step 9: Sprinkle the Remaining Mozzarella on Top

Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. We like to put it on Broil for the last 5 minutes to crisp it up. Just keep and eye on it so you don't burn things.

Step 10: Enjoy

This is a Low Carb energy booster. 2 of these will make a meal and it is delicious.

Add some sour cream and Pico and you have an excellent appetizer for your next dinner party!

Yeppers! I topped w/ fresh made bacon bits before topping w/cheese and
topped with fresh cilantro after taking out of the oven. My lady loves

I have never cooked with avacado before and these were amazing! It was funny, I didn't know how to tell a ripe avacado from an unripe one... I spent an hour on the first three only to try the fourth avacado and see how easy a ripe one is! I will absolutely be making these again (especially now that I know ripe avacado is soft)! Thank you for sharing!

I did 1.25 cups mozz and 3/4 teaspoon salt.

Super!!! I am glad you liked them.
We put Rotel in them from time to time to change it up. Not as low carb, but really good.

These look really good, will have to try sometime soon!

I have a silly question though, do you eat the skin and all like a potato skin or are you just putting it back in the skin for cooking and storing purposes?

Thanks! You can't eat the skin, it serves as a serving dish.

Thank you for the quick reply! That's what I figured, was really struggling to envision any way that avocado skin would be edible. haha

I would think it's worth a try. We don't have an air fryer, but I would assume if you watched it, it would work
