{Make This} Broiled + Buttery Avocado Goodness

We skipped town last Thursday for an extended weekend on the Colorado River with our group of friends. A river trip gives good occasion for a little fun and excess every now and then, not the least of which was this amazing avocado preparation I was introduced to one evening when the boat docked back at the house we were staying at.

Bags unpacked and back at home last night, The Mister and I had a craving for it again- sort of a last hurrah before we returned to some good ol' fashioned work week discipline.

But just because I'm in need of a little discipline doesn't mean you can't be a little naughty this week. Do it. Make this broiled and buttery, avocado goodness for dinner. I promise. It's worth the guilt.


Half avocado, remove pit.
Fill the empty well (where the pit once was) with a pat (or two) of butter.
Sprinkle with fresh garlic, parmesan (or your favorite) cheese, salt, pepper.
Toss some bacon bits over the top (optional).

Throw these bad boys on a cookie sheet and place under the broiler until browned and bubbly. I heard you could also throw them on the grill as well.  Just be sure to place them on a tin foil boat to catch any drippings.

Warmed and "marinated" in the butter, the avocado develops a richer, creamier texture that is just as tasty as the seasonings with which it's topped. We just grabbed one and scooped the insides out with a spoon.
