How innovative! Hey I have a good idea. Consider applying for a patent. I'm sure it will snag you a boatload of money.

This was a super avocado recipe and a great way to incorporate some protein. Loved it and will probably make it during the winter in the oven as well.

This grilled avocado recipe was just as good as I expected and it's such a creative way to serve them. I made a couple of minor changes to the topping -- I used green onions vs. regular and I added a little dollop of sour cream to the top. Made for "For Your Consideration" tag game.
