It seems so simple, why didn’t we think of this before?

Bacon and Basil Avocado A.K.A Baconado


1/2 ripe avocado
1 strip crispy bacon, crumbled (I used an uncured Neiman Ranch chipotle bacon)
2-3 leaves of fresh basil, chiffonaded (aka, rolled up and sliced thin)


Put bacon and basil on avocado.  Eat.  Yea, I know, it’s like directions on a pop-tart.  So this section isn’t completely useless, I will say that I wished I had mashed the avocado in its skin a little bit before topping it with the bacon and basil.  This would have allowed for me to eat it more easily and with a more even distribution of toppings in each bite.
