For the Bacon Dust

Instructions

For the Avocado and Egg

  1. Halve the avocado lengthwise. Remove the pit and carefully remove the peel. 
  2. Place each avocado half on a plate. (To make the avocado a little more stable, use a sharp knife to remove a thin slice from the bottom of the avocado.) 
  3. Peel the egg and cut in half. Nestle one egg half in the hollow of each avocado. 
  4. Sprinkle the bacon dust evenly over the avocados and eggs and serve at once.

For the Bacon Dust

Use this flavorful sprinkle in place of salt whenever you want a jolt of savory, protein-rich flavor. Try it on baked potatoes, popcorn, salads, fried eggs and more. The key to a fine “dust” is to make sure you cook your bacon until very crisp.

Makes about 1/2 cup

  1. Cook the bacon in a heavy skillet over medium heat, flipping once, until well browned and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. 
  2. Remove from the heat and transfer the bacon to a paper towel–lined plate to drain. 
  3. When the bacon is completely cool and very crisp, crumble it into large pieces and place in a small food processor or spice grinder. 
  4. Process the bacon until very finely ground. Transfer to a small bowl. If not using at once, the bacon dust can be tightly wrapped and refrigerated for up to 3 days.
