Meatless Monday- Bruschetta Avocados

August 19, 2013

This is a quick and easy Meatless Monday meal.  Just like every other busy person, sometimes I want something really quick and really easy to throw on the table.  Tonight, these guys are it!  Perfect on their own, or paired up as a side to some grilled chicken or fish.  Give them a whirl!

Bruschetta Stuffed Avocados

(You know it’s easy when there aren’t measurements!)

You Need:

Avocados- enough to feed everyone.  Figure on 1 and 1/2 per person if they are a stand alone, or 1/2 of one if it’s a side.
Pre-made Fresh Bruschetta- check your deli or refrigerated produce section for this
Grated Parmesan and Asiago Cheese
Breadcrumbs
Olive Oil

                                                                                  
Now it gets tricky… Not really.

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees, and halve your avocados.  I usually make the pit “hole” a bit larger, so that more stuff fits in.  Then, spoon a few spoonfuls of bruschetta into each half.  Mix up some of the cheese with some breadcrumbs, and moisten with olive oil until it forms a paste like consistency.  Top each avocado half with the breadcrumb mixture and toss into the oven for 13-15 minutes.

Eat and enjoy!
See… wasn’t that easy?

Until next time…. give it a swirl!
