BLT with Baked Avocado Egg Salad {Guest Post at Hun What's For Dinner}

A while back my friend Cindy asked me to do a guest post for her blog Hun What's For Dinner. I was happy to do it and very honored she asked me, also she wanted me to do it today, which is my birthday, I thought it was an awesome idea. 

I have known Cindy for quite a while now. I met her through mutual blogger friends on Facebook. One of the great things about being a food blogger is that you  meet some pretty fantastic people that share the same love so they don't think you are crazy when you talk about obsessing over food. I mean my family looks at me like I have grown a third eye when I babble on about recipes I am working on "You want to put what with what?", they roll there eyes and sigh loudly when they have to wait to eat because I am taking a million and one pictures of the meal hoping to get just the right one "Are we actually going to be able to eat before it is cold this time?", and grumble when I again want to watch one of my countless cooking shows "Isn't there something, ANYTHING else on that you want to watch?". So having a foodie family gives us all the support and understanding we need.....plus we don't feel like we need a 12 step program anymore!




You know I have talked about my Pintrest obsession before. I get on there and have to pry myself away....usually several hours later! One of the things I have been seeing for quite some time is baked avocado with eggs. I was interested but, with my little trip to the ER and not being sure if it was avocado that sent me there, I was a little leery of them. Once I finally got the green light from the Doc I knew that I wanted to tackle the idea but with my own twist. 

I looked at several recipes, and boy are there tons, before I decided that I wanted to try them as a salad. I thought that the creaminess of the yolk along with, what I assumed would be an even creamier avocado after baking, who needs dressing? Also, I love BLTs with avocado and a fried eggs (hence this post for BLTAE Sammies with Homemade Bacon Mayo), so a salad with  sweet ripe tomato, peppery arugala, and salty bacon, seemed the perfect combination to compliment that gorgeous baked avocado.

I was right! I would have liked my yolk a bit runnier, I like a reallllllllllllly runny yolk, but the flavors were perfect. This to me is a breakfast! No more ho hum cereal or eggs and toast, bring me a BLT Baked Avocado and Egg salad and I will be a happy camper!!

So go check out Cindy's blog, Hun What's For Dinner,  for the recipe and tons of other yummy stuff!! Tell her I said "Hi"!!

    1. I am addicted (no seriously, it is bad) to avocado. So when I thought I might be allergic I was devastated. I hope you do give them a try. WARNING...you might end up like me :)
