Avocado Bun – Candy Coated Culinista

Has the mighty avocado just jumped the shark? I saw the weirdest thing the other day which is all the buzz and the latest fad. Avocados are now being used as a substitute for a bun; hmmm, now I love avocado and can have one every day but as a bun? This is a great gluten free option; but lets get real here it is not a burger bun. It looks visually striking and interesting but this can only be just a fad right? I did a few food experiments to see if this is a viable option.
Here are some of my test recipes.

Smoked Salmon on a Sesame seeds Avocado Bun

Ingredients
• Avocado, cut in half and skinned peeled away also slice a piece off the bottom bun so it won’t tip
• Tomato slice
• Spinach
• Smoked salmon
• Red onion, sliced
• Sesame seeds, sprinkled on top of avocado
• Olives, top of the avocado bun
• Sweet pickles, top of the avocado bun

Assembly
1. Top ingredients on to avocado and serve.

Bacon & Egg Breakfast Sandwich

Ingredients
• Avocado, cut in half and skinned peeled away also slice a piece off the bottom bun so it won’t tip
• Sharp cheddar cheese, sliced
• Green bell pepper, sliced
• Bacon
• Fried, slightly runny
• Poppy seeds, sprinkled on top of avocado

Assembly
1. Top ingredients on to avocado and serve.

Please Enjoy

My thoughts
Both these were delicious; but to me nothing beats eating an avocado with a little salt and lemon cut in half and using the shell as a bowl. Sometimes simplicity is the best and honestly you can’t eat this like a true burger with an avocado bun; unless you’re used to eating your burgers with a knife and fork regularly. I may secretly enjoy this at home deconstructed or when I just don’t want a bun; but to truly use the avocado like a bun is near impossible. It’s still delicious but very impractical as a bun and calling this a bun is an enormous stretch to say the least.
