Over the last few months I’ve been making a huge effort to eat a healthy, well balanced breakfast. One that includes lots of protein, healthy fat and carbohydrates in the form of vegetables. My go to has been eggs, bacon and sliced tomatoes. Delicious, but after a while? Boring.
Plus, I needed some healthy fat in that mix. Enter California Avocados.
Obviously, I could have added some sliced avocado to my breakfast plate, but hey…sometimes you need a fancier breakfast. So I pan fried some avocado slices in masa harina – a.k.a. corn flour. It’s gluten free and adds a nutty, delicious crust. So suprising and mouthwatering…honestly, I could eat an entire avocado prepared this way…and probably will. Avocado fried in masa harina makes a pretty stellar side. You could also use corn meal, which is usually easier to find in the market. Just go for the finest grind possible.
ANYWAY. Back to breakfast. This dish is pretty simple to make, but looks special and pretty, so you can serve it for brunch or a special breakfast-y occasion.
Or make it for dinner on a Wednesday, which is what I just did.
California Avocados are so perfect right now. For this recipe, pick an avocado that is JUST ripe. An overly soft avocado will be too hard to fry up.
And don’t forget a mug of piping hot coffee. Breakfast perfection.
