Baked Stuffed Avocado

Today is the day we are combining several recipes to make this an avocado lover’s dream.

We friggin’ love avocados, (who doesn’t?) and they are a go-to ingredient for many plant-pushers … but, have you ever baked em?! Oh boy, you’re in for a treat. These Baked Stuffed Avocado are filled with our Wicked Awesome Sauce then topped with some of the deliciousness you’ve whipped up over the last few days. Yep! You guessed it, PICO!

Your choice of pesto, grilled asparagus pico, seared red cabbage and/or green bean orange pico are a perfect topping for the avocados before they bake.

Just two brothers on a wicked mission, taking a break.

We’re adding a little garnish at the end for these cheesy avocado treats for a huge variety of flavor. Enjoy these as is, served individually with chips or or favorite crisps.

PS: This is great party food! It’s wicked easy to throw together once you have all the mise en place done, and it’s an easy handheld item with a spoon—no plate required. Unless you’re the messy guy, like brother Chad. We all know someone that drops everything on the clean rug.

Serves: 2


2 avocados, sliced in half, pits removed
1 C Cheezy Sauce Recipe

Avocado Stuffing 1
cherry tomatoes, quartered

pinch coarse sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/176°C.
  2. Score the flesh of the avocado halves in checkerboard pattern, making sure you don’t go through the skin. Spoon Cheezy Sauce evenly into each avocado half, squeezing avocado gently to allow the cheezy sauce to get into the scored nooks and crannies.
  3. Place cheeze-slathered avocados into a cast iron skillet and bake for 7-10 minutes, or until cheezy sauce starts to turn golden and slightly crust up on the edges.
  4. Top each avocado with any of the four toppings above as desired. Serve immediately.
