Baked Avocados

Baked Avocados come together quickly for an easy weeknight dinner. A creamy avocado is topped with savory garlic and cheese and sweet tomato and basil for a delicious dinner. They taste great with fresh garden tomato and basil, if you made them back in August like I did! Or, live in an area where your garden is still flourishing!

Baked Avocados
Recipe inspired by Mele Cotte

·1 tsp minced garlic
·1 TBS grated Parmesan cheese
·1 TBS basil, chopped
·1 TBS lemon juice
·Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450°. Halve and pit the avocado. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients among the two avocado halves. Place on a small baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
