Got to cook my first real egged meal since I left OKC nearly a month ago (bad job timing...). So what to do but to taste what we didn't get to taste in OKC.

The raws (most of them anyway)


The Mango Salsa put together.


The avocados disassembled, mushed and mixed with reconstituted anchos, salt, pepper and mayo. Then back into the shells.


I used your idea Deane! Cutting the top off in two pieces leaves a stand that can be used. It works :woohoo:


The rest of it on the egg.


And on the plates. We didn't do the bearnaise as we were going to do (have now done) hollandaise with the eggs bennie this morning.


And being enjoyed.


Only complaint was from Randi who thought there should be lemon in with the avocado.

The girls and I loved it.

    Looks great from here buddy, even without the lemon.
  • It looks great. Thanks for letting us know how you cooked the dish. I couldn't tell from just the photo of the winning dish what you did. Nice job and Congrats on winning.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!
    3 Large, 2 Smalls, 1 well-used Mini
  • Thanks Ron, at OKC I left the avocado stuffing ingredients to my capable teammates and never did ask what they put in there, so I was flying a little blind this time, turned out better than alright though.

  • Thanks Faith, it is actually good enough to do again. We didn't get to taste all of it together in OKC so I really didn't know. Went together nicely.

    And you came up with this and cooked it in half an hour?
    Don't want to go head to head with you.

    Very nice Doug. I had to reread to see how you did the avacados.

    I guarantee I'd be face down in the plate with a bib if you put that in front of me. I left the fest jsut before the Iron Chef contest due to family emergancy. Sure would have liked to see you win that. Enjoyed your chow. Was a heck of a tent with you and DrZaius, reelgem and Greenbay, JLockhart and Frank from "Corpus" and others. Some serious grub was served and enjoyed. Congrats on the win and go to Emily Murphy park for me this summer. I loved going there in 75 on my way back to Alaska. A few (not really a few but many) LaBatts were enjoyed there. :)

    Got to agree with Randi. Needs limon!! :laugh: Really great cook Doug. Just so much you can do in 30 min. but it turned out ok in the end! Hope you get to spend more time at home for a change and play around hear some to. Just got off myself this afternoon. Ate Mexican out. Does that make me a bad Egger?! :P
  • Bruce, I'm just up the hill from Emily Murphy, You get into town, drop by, foods better off the egg. And lord knows there's way better beer up here than Labbatts.

  • Steve, I know how you cook. The thought of facing you head to head has me quaking in my boots. I came up with it, but the heroes on my team, Anne, Deane, Doug (the other Doug) and Randi did the heavy lifting. I just ran around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to keep it all coordinated

  • Thanks Mike. Was fun to do the first time and good to taste the second.

  • Everyones gotta eat out every once in a while just to learn that the food is in fact better at home. Nice that the standing up trick worked the way you thought hey?

    And I am chopped liver for next year? ;) I made the mistake of giving Anne a ton of my ideas. Now she will use them against me in Branson. :(
