With the big stone in the middle of avocados removed, you have the perfect space to stuff other ingredients in there for a real treat. Stuffed avocados have been around for a long time, but we have something extra to add with mushrooms. Bacon of course adds to the saltiness and crunch you’ve been looking for. This Bacon & Mushroom Stuffed Avocado is great for breakfast or a pre-main starter at your next dinner party.

Avocado doesn’t just taste great, it’s packed with healthy fats, fibre and other great ingredients. Mushrooms add to the meatiness and go very well with a well-balanced breakfast. The rest of the ingredients are tasty salsa which you can easily chop up in no time. If you want to turn your Bacon & Mushroom Stuffed Avocado into something more substantial, add an egg on top for more protein.
