Avocado Nests

I'm creating and testing recipes this week that feature Avocados from Mexico.  Avocados are a healthy treat for after school when children especially need something filling and nutritious.
Here is a hearty after school snack that I hope will put a smile on your kids faces.  Avocado nests are filled with deviled eggs and sit on a bed of hash browns and bacon strips.  I made these this afternoon when Marina and her friend Anya wanted an after pool snack.  They both loved them and actually so did my husband.
I did not salt the deviled eggs because they would be eaten along with the bacon, but you may want to add a bit of salt to the hash browns and the eggs.

Ingredients:

2 avocados
2 hard boiled eggs
2 cups frozen hash browns
4 strips bacon
mayonaise
salt and pepper

Method:

Cook hash browns according to direction.
Cut bacon slices into thin strips and bake or fry as you prrefere.
Make deviled eggs; mix a bit of mayonaise or cream cheese with egg yolks and divide equally into the egg white halves.
Cut avocados in half, remove seed and peel.
Place hash browns on plate and sprinkle with bacon.
Place eggs into seed cavity of avocados.
Rest avocados on the bed of hash browns and bacon.
Scroll down for Avocados from Mexico nutritional facts and storage tips.
Stop back tomorrow for another kid tested after school snack recipe!
