BACON AVOCADO CROSTINI
1/2 Baguette, sliced thin
1-2 Avocado(s), ripe
8-10 Slices of bacon
Salt and fresh ground pepper
Line a large baking sheet with tin foil and lay the bacon on the pan. (I always have to squeeze just-one-more-on-the-pan).
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is really crispy.
Watch the bacon closely around the 15 minute mark because it can burn quickly, depending on how thick/thin the slices are. The bacon I use usually takes 20 minutes.
Remove the bacon and dry the bacon on paper towels.
Place the baguette slices on the baking sheet, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh. Mash with a fork in a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.
Crumble the bacon.
Remove the baguette slices from the oven and put a spoonful of mashed avocado on the baguette and sprinkle with bacon crumbles.
I have big news! I have a black squirrel living in the tree right outside my kitchen window. It is a joke within my family because I get extremely excited whenever I see the black squirrel. I have been known to slam on my brakes and jump out of my car to take a photo of a black squirrel, causing my daughter to be late for school, but you can't blame me... they are rare...and now I have one right in my backyard! My goal is to having him eating out of my hand by the end of summer!
