    In the stuffing was homemade andouille, feta, cilantro, onions
     
  10. That's my favorite sausage, sir, and the idea of stuffing it into an alligator pear and then frying it is incredible!!!

    that's such a great, if unusual idea!

    This stuffed Avacado looks like something I have run across in Houston and Southern Texas. They called them cannonballs. Its avacado stuffed with meat/cheese (chicken, pork, beef, or shrimp), then the entire thing is battered and deep fried.

    Been thinking of doing something similar but Maybe wrap the thing in bacon and smoke instead of deep frying...

    Haha, Alligator pear..  I'll try not to forget that one.  On the other hand that looks amazing.

    Coming from the land of avocados, I thought I had seen them all but that looks mighty tasty (except for the feta - I can change it)

    They cook them, stuff them and  deep fry them and use them in almost every manner you can think of including ice cream

    Nice job.

    Trivia - Did you know that there are over 1000 varieties of avocados and that in CA there are over 500 types grown organically

    That looks great!  I like the idea of wrapping in bacon and smoking, but do you think it will oxidize and turn brown

    Probably drying them & smoking them too!

    I wish you could but oxygen is the avocado's enemy and they turn brown and ugly really fast. I am not sure if you could keep hitting them with some acidulated (lemon or other acidic fruit) water to help. Sounds mighty tasty though.  2 Weeks ago we had 70 K in visitors for the annual avocado fest. What a crazy day that is

    unfortunately, they have too much fat, and will go rancid during the drying process. I tried this out one time when I first got into dehydrating my own backpacking foods. Ruined an entire dehydrator load of veggies, too.

    I remember A.B. doing that in an episode, but never tried it. Sounds good, though.
