Avocado Mousse and Melba Toast

READY IN: 3hrs 45mins
Recipe by I'mPat

November issue of Australian Table Magazine. Looks like an elegant entree for a dinner party. Cook time is chill time for Mousse and cook time for melba toast combined. Believe you could do this in a larger mould and serve buffet style surrounded with melba toast, crackers and or fresh crispy vegetables.

I made this recipe and put some aside before adding the gelatin. It made a great dip with veggies. I am using the rest as a spread for lunches tomorrow. The moulds turned out just as well. I used store bought crackers and melba toast. Very good and very easy! Made for the Bargain Basement holiday tag.
