Bacon Avocado Cups with Balsamic Glaze


Appetizer, Lunch, Side Dishes


2 avocados

4 slices of bacon, cooked

fresh lemon slice 

3 T butter

1 T balsamic vinegar

1 tsp minced garlic


Cut your avocados in half lengthwise and remove the pits. Rub the insides of the avocado with a few drops of lemon juice from a fresh lemon slice (If you are eating these right away, you can leave out the whole lemon part - the lemon just helps keep the avocado from turning brown). Crumble the bacon and stuff it into the avocado half where the pit was – use one piece of bacon per avocado half.

Over low heat, melt the butter, balsamic and garlic. Stir constantly for about a minute or two until the mixture is boiling. As soon as it boils, remove from heat and drizzle all over the avocado halves. Enjoy!
