I need your best recipes featuring avocado!

Ooh, that sounds like the perfect match between avo pie and avo ice cream.

The pie we get is room temperature. I don't think there's cream cheese in it, there may be some sweetened condensed milk involved.

I will continue to pester them for their recipe the next time we get down there.

OK - here's mine:

I LOVE breakfast sandwiches and have over the years come up with several incarnations that include avocado - think egg mcmuffin but better (and vegetarian).

Toasted English muffin
2 fried eggs or eggs poached fairly firm
slice of pepper jack
A few slices of avocado that have been tossed in lime juice. Alternatively you can make a quick mash and incorporate a few squeezes of lime - top with a little chopped cilantro.

Build it:
Bottom muffin half
1 egg
cheese
second egg
avocado
chopped cilantro (just a little)
Add a little hot sauce if desired.
top of muffin

Wrap this in a piece of parchment paper of foil to serve - hand food.

The avocado with the lime ends up tasting a bit like hollandaise. it's wonderful and fast and the two egg stack makes this a fairly filling sandwich.

This is my avocado pie recipe.

I took it in to work (after I had a slice) 2 nice ladies that I worked with tasted it and did not share with the rest of the office and asked for the recipe.

That's an interesting concept. I've never heard of avocado in Thai food. Obviously I've missed something. Do you have a recipe to share?

This looks like it's very similar to what we had. I don't know how you refrained from licking the spoon though, PPO.

We first had it from a local Thai restaurant. It's a Massaman curry with potatoes, then right before serving they add in cashews and avocado chunks. I don't know if he has a recipe that he uses or just wings it when he makes it at home. I'm sure he'll answer when he gets up.

I did lick the spoon, just not on camera!

I test drove a seafood recipe before the holidays that included avocado cream and avocado balls (pain-in-the-butt to do). The avocado cream was interesting. I know that avocado is used to substitute for butter or shortening in baked recipes. From what I've read, it is a 1:1 substitution. If the focus of the contest is to use the avocado as a "secret" ingredient, I think that would be what I'd be trying to track down and then see where that inspiration would take me. My first thought would be to look for recipes using avocado instead of butter (maybe some vegan recipes or lactose intolerant recipes). I would also see if I could track down fresh or dried avocado leaves to use as seasoning...and maybe try to incorporate avocado oil in as well. I keep trying to get an avocado "tree" started, but can't seem to get it to sprout. I had one years ago...never knew I could use the leaves...

There are a few on the internet. On "All Recipes" IIRC from looking yesterday.
