- 20 strips of precooked packaged bacon (see note)
- 1 large avocado sliced into thin fry-size pieces (I sliced each avocado half into 5 slices, and then cut them down the middle to make them shorter, making 10 fries per half avocado)
Preheat oven to 425°F. Take one strip of precooked bacon and try to gently stretch a little longer without it breaking (especially near the lighter pink and white parts). Carefully wrap around avocado fry, starting at one end and working to the other end, and securely tuck in the end piece. Repeat with remaining and place onto baking sheet. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until bacon becomes crisp.
- It's important to use precooked bacon instead of raw. If the avocado cooks too long in the oven it becomes very bitter. Using precooked bacon cuts the cook time down so that the bacon is crispy, but the avocado is still delicious when it comes out of the oven. I buy packages of precooked bacon at Costco or you could pre-cook your own. If you use raw bacon, cook it about half the time you normally would. It should be flexible enough to wrap around the avocado.
