Bacon and avocado. One is the unpretentious staple of campfire breakfasts and greasy spoons all over the world. The other is a hip, high-minded burst of rich and creamy freshness, even while getting a bum rap for the lack of millennial mortgages.
Yet even coming from opposite ends of the culinary spectrum, we at Stanley don’t choose a side. Delicious is delicious, no matter how you slice it or fry it up. That’s why we pair these two star-crossed lovers in our out-of-this-world, party-ready Bacon Guacamole. The fatty, salty bacon complements the creamy, cool avocado perfectly in this simple, easy to make recipe. Whether you’re looking for a crowd-pleasing B.Y.O. addition to a Game Day shindig or a quick snack you can toss into your Adventure Vacuum Bowl before you hit the trail on a hike, this Bacon Guac gets the job done. Who says you have to work hard to be a party pleaser?
