10 Amazing Things to do with Avocados

10 Amazing Avocado Recipes

Follow Me on Pinterest

Over the last little while I have done a few tasty new recipes with avocados and the last one reminded me of just how much I enjoy them! Looking back over the all of the avocados recipes that I have posted I realized that there are more than 50 of them and that meant that it was time to roundup some of my favourites! It certainly was not difficult finding 10 recipes with avocados, on the contrary, it was more difficult trimming the list down to just 10 and here they are!

Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Avocado works surprisingly well with melted cheese and this Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich has to be my absolute favourite way to enjoy them all wrapped up in buttery, toasty, golden brown bread. Pure heaven in sandwich form!


Poached Egg on Toast with Chipotle Mayonnaise, Bacon and Avocado

These Poached Eggs on Toast with Chipotle Mayonnaise, Bacon and Avocado are a great way to get some avocado goodness for breakfast!


Thai Grilled Chicken Satay Salad

Avocado slices really make this Thai Grilled Chicken Satay Salad with its peanut dressing special.


Bacon Guacamole

What avocado roundup would be complete with out a guacamole recipe and Bacon Guacamole is definitely a great way to go!


Avocado BLT with Fried Egg And Chipotle Mayo

The BLT sandwich is already pretty amazing but if you add avocados like in this Avocado BLT with Fried Egg And Chipotle Mayo, things really start to get good!


Creamy Avocado Dressing (aka Guacamole Buttermilk Dressing)

A more recent discovery, and new favourite, is using avocados in a dressing like this Creamy Avocado Dressing (aka Guacamole Buttermilk Dressing) and it is addictively good!


Jalapeno Cornbread Grilled Cheese with Chipotle Caramelized Onions, Refried Black Beans and Guacamole

This Jalapeno Cornbread Grilled Cheese with Chipotle Caramelized Onions, Refried Black Beans and Guacamole is quite the mouthful in more ways than one but you will instantly fall for it with the first bite!


Avocado and Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Creamy avocados also go well in spicy salsa like this Avocado and Roasted Tomatillo Salsa!


Mango, Avocado and Grilled Shrimp Salad with a Peanut Dressing

Avocados and mangoes are another magical combination and they make perfect partners in this Mango, Avocado and Grilled Shrimp Salad with a Peanut Dressing.


Creamy Avocado/Guacamole Egg Salad Sandwich

If you are looking for a lighter version of an egg salad sandwich, avocados make a great substitution for the mayonnaise without sacrificing and of the creaminess and this Creamy Avocado/Guacamole Egg Salad Sandwich is a particularly nice example.

Tonight we had sandwiches on French bread with fat slices of tomatoes, roast chicken and avocado slices, big fat ones.
We get avocado here all year round, we like them in just about every form .. I have to try the chicken satay .. that sounds and looks so good !

I love avocados! The mango, avocado, grilled shrimp looks delicious! Going to have to make that tomorrow. Never thought about combining avocado with tomatillo salsa. I make a roasted tomatillo salsa with honey, but now I will try and add avocado. Yum!
