We buy rock-hard avocados at Costco, keep them in the refrigerator, but place one at a time outside the refrigerator in a bag until they soften -- they last a week or two this way.

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

I like to get the Florida Avocados that have smooth skin (verses the Hass that have wrinkled skin) and de-seed and skin then slice them and add them to soup just before serving. Yummy with a spicy chicken soup. I will server them on the side of most any dish, and better with pork chops than apple sauce. One thing about the Florida Avocados is they do not make great Guacamole, as they kind of separate when you mash them. They not as creamy as the Hass.

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Thread resurrected after three months. Not as good as three days but such it is.

Chef Dave reckons the crinkly Avocados but I'm with Miata, the smooth skinned variety are my preference though they are not as hardy as the crinkly.

Avocado and crispy bacon. Simply halve the Avo and fill with bacon, smidgeon of Worcester sauce and Tabasco doesn't hurt. Someone else already mentioned shrimp.

Favourite for us is sour dough toast with avo, tomato and fresh chopped basil.

When my weight sends me off on a raw veggie/fruit lunch regime I'm partial to Avo/Carrot/Celery salad, drizzle of olive oil and vinegar, freshly ground black pepper. Hold the beer.

Re: The lonely Avacodo...

Five pages and no one mentioned a breakfast favorite aboard Rhythm. Ripe avocado halved as described, use a spoon to scrape out some of the flesh making a larger hole in the avocado half. Into this well break an egg. Bake at 375 degrees about 20-minutes until egg is set. Sprinkle with bacon bits (the real ones people) and enjoy. A crunchy slice of toast is a perfect accompaniment. Hot sauce optional. (tip, you may need to make a small slice on the bottom of the avocado so it will rest on the baking pan without tipping.)
