Surprise Recipe Swap – Bacon Parmesan Broiler Avocados

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on March 20, 2013

I am so excited to be participating in my very first Surprise Recipe Swap . Each month Jutta from Hungry Little Girl is hosting a Surprise Recipe Swap,  participants are assigned a blog and they then choose a recipe to make and write about in a blog post. This month I was assigned the Hungry Little Girl blog, Jutta has a large selection of all types of recipes. I had a hard time selecting a recipe but I narrowed it down to four recipes: Spinach Spaghetti Casserole, Cheesy Ground Beef Casserole, Pumpkin Pizza and Bacon Parmesan Broiler Avocados. Ultimately, I choose the Bacon Parmesan Broiler Avocados because I thought it was interesting and I had all of the ingredients on hand.


Ingredients (for two servings)

  • 2 large avocados
  • 3 stripes bacon
  • 2 TBSP hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 TBSP Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I use Mexican blend)


  • Turn your broiler on high
  • Cook bacon crispy in the microwave, then cut into small pieces and set aside
  • Cut avocados in half and take out the pit, place on a baking sheet
  • Make lots of little cuts into each avocado half, so the sauce can get into it
  • In a small bowl combine hot sauce, garlic and lemon juice
  • Brush each avocado half with it
  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese into each whole of the avocados
  • Broil for 3 minutes
  • Take out and top with bacon pieces and shredded cheese, broil for additional 5 minutes
  • Serve and Enjoy!

I really liked this recipe, it was so easy and very flavorful.Participating in the Surprise Recipe Swap was a fun experience and I look forward to joining in each month.
