Green Eggs and Ham

Well, sort of.  The eggs weren't the green part, and it was Canadian Bacon, not ham.

The CB was from a loin I cured and smoked on the Egg.

This is still a recipe in progress.  The flavors were very good, but the avocado was not as soft as I wanted.  I had two ripe alligator pears I was preparing for this, but when I opened them they looked nasty, so I went to the store and did this with two that were not as ripe as I liked.  I thought they would bake soft, but they were still a bit hard.  Next time I will try 1) more ripe, 2) bake the avocado for a while before I fill them, or 3) scramble things up more like a quiche. 

Halved avocados, filled with a raw egg, CB, cheese and tomato.  Done indirect at 400, with the expectation it would take 20 minutes.  It took a whole hour for the eggs to be done enough.

I did a sprinkle of peri peri flakes on mine.

Again, flavors were great, but the texture needed more baking.  We want to try some variant of this with chili and pulled pork.  First time I ever did anything to cook an
 avocado.

    Interesting cook Doc. I like the afternoon wine drinking.

  • Is it possible to cook without wine?

    I got over-served at an event last night so I am having to take a night off from cooking. Sitting by my fireplace and pounding Gatorade. Just living vicariously through you tonight, Doc

    That's a great looking cook. Will do soon. As far as the afternoon drinking....why start so late in the day? ;)

    @Doc - very inventive cook. I never knew you could cook avocados either.

  • Nice cook Doc!  I saw this yesterday and showed Wilma.  She said she dislikes avacado in every form except guacamole.  I didn't know that!  She is a peculiar creature!

    Looks great Doc.  I don't think I have ever cooked an avocado either, but it is definitely a cool idea. 



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    What an interesting idea. I'm gonna have to try that.

    I don't think its possible to cook without wine (or alcohol). Sometimes it even makes it into the recipe.

    Inspired me to try it. Crumbled sausage and whipped an egg then wrapped in bacon. I also tried one stuffed with hot pepper cheese. Thanks for the idea.

    How did the texture on the avocado turn out?  Were they ripe to begin with?

    The avocados were ripe but not mushy. Really good eats...@Chubbs....if i actually cooked them. I've tried 8 different apps the past 2 night, 1 per recipe trying to decide what to cook in Salado.
