Sunday Surprise!

What’s silky, creamy, sweet and tart?  An avocado, of course!

A smaller version of the Breakfast Club reconvened one fine Sunday morning at our house.  The buffet was filled with Flora Inspired Bloodies, mimosa’s, souffléd eggs, truffled popovers, fruit, sausage, bacon (2 kinds), and veggie grits.  Because I had some extra time, and some extra avocados, I decided to throw in a surprise…

Now, don’t freak out on me…

AVOCADO PIE.  Yes!  Avocado!  I’m telling you. It’s just like a key lime pie, but healthier.  Dare to surprise your next Breakfast Club?  Here’s the recipe.
