Broiled avocado halves with havarti,turkey bacon and green onion served with tortilla chips

Avocado is one of nature’s richest treats. The smooth creamy fruit lends itself to many indulgent snack foods. Chips and guacamole seems a standard fixture on party snack tables. Cool and creamy avocado atop nachos is an important element to compliment the crunchy and cheesy chips. Even just scooping the fresh unadulterated meat out of an avocado half with a spoon and eating it is delightful. While cool and refreshing avocado is fantastic, warm avocado is also superb.Broiling avocados is a great  way to enjoy warmed avocados.  Simply top the, "in- skin," avocado halves with havarti cheese and bacon before broiling.  After removing the halves from the oven fihish them with a sprinkling of fresh green onion and enjoy with tortilla chips.  Such a quick and comforting snack is a great candidate for Super Bowl Sunday munching!  One could probably even whip up these babies during half time without a sweat!

Broiled avocado halves with havarti and turkey bacon served with tortilla chips


Makes four avocado halves
2 whole avocados cut and half and pitted
¾ cups havarti cheese (shredded)
2 pieces turkey bacon (cooked and chopped)
¼ cup green onion (chopped)
Salt and pepper to taste

Method of preparation

Begin by turning on the broiler of the oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the avocado halves face up on the sheet. Sprinkle each half with a generous portion of cheese. Top the layer of cheese with a layer of chopped bacon. Cover the halves with foil and broil for about ten minutes. After the ten minuts, remove the foil and brown slightly for about three minutes. Remove the halves from the oven, sprinkle with fresh green onion and allow them to cool slightly. Use tortilla chips to scoop up bites of this rich and tasty snack.
