I pretty much love pork. It’s wonderful. I love it in all shapes and forms. I love bacon, especially when it is baked in the oven, not fried in a skillet and even more so when it’s wrapped around a creamy avocado and baked to perfection. These bacon wrapped avocados are about to rock your world.

I am embarrassed to admit that I used to be a bacon hater. Yup, it’s true. I used to think that bacon was fatty, chewy, nastiness. In fact, I hated it so much that I would take the time to pick it out of sandwiches, off of chicken dishes, and I certainly would never touch the stuff at breakfast. Thankfully I grew up and realized that bacon is life.


It’s crunchy and flavorful. You just want to wrap yourself in it. Bacon, is the new cashmere. Or at least these bacon wrapped avocados are.

Avocado Recipes

A few weeks ago I was trying to think up a way to use the last of my avocado. It was lunch time, and while this Wrap with a honey Avocado dressing is pretty much the best thing in all the world, as is a little BBQ pork and guacamole grilled cheese, but I really needed something else.


I had just come home from the grocery store with a delightful little bag of avocados and I decided to forgo the bread and make something a bit broken down, bacon wrapped avocados and boy was it awesome.

Best Bacon at the Grocery Store

The key to any recipe with bacon, especially an appetizer like this one where the bacon is the star of the dish, is to buy the right bacon. We’ve really fallen in love with Wright’s Bacon, but if you have a brand you recommend we would love to hear about it.

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Avocados

Just wrap your avocados in the bacon and then dredge in a brown sugar and chili powder mixture. Bake until the bacon is crisp and beautiful.

Sweet deliciousness this was good. Probably the best lunch ever! And because I’m trying to be good about balance, I figured I should add a little calcium and fruit in too. So, I went ahead and added apples and laughing cow cheese. I know I don’t get nearly enough calcium in my diet, and I wonder how many of you are the same?

What ways do you incorporate dairy into your diet? And have you joined the bacon bandwagon? I’m sure you will with these bacon wrapped avocados.


How to Pick a Ripe Avocado

I have a secret pet peeve when I’m at the grocery store. You see, when I’m standing there picking out produce and someone is picking up avocados in the palm of their hand and squeezing it with fingers wrapped around the entire body, or grabbing fruit after fruit and squeezing with their thumb and fingers it takes everything in me to not ask them to stop.



Testing the avocado fruit like that only bruises it, even if it isn’t ripe yet, so it’s ruining the avocado for others.


Instead, to pick a ripe avocado,  place your thumb on the bottom and your pointer finger on the top and if it yields to gentle pressure it should be eaten within a day or two.


Unripe, firm or green fruit can take four to five days to ripen at room temperature.


How to Store Avocados

Avocados should be stored at room temperature in one layer and not by any citrus fruits unless you’re looking to ripen them quickly.


Once the avocado begins to yield to gentle pressure, place it in the refrigerator to slow the ripening process as this will prolong its life.


Also, storing avocados in wire framed bowls can lead to bruising as it ripens and settles into the wires.


How Long are Avocados Good For?

Avocados on the counter that started out green could take 5 days to ripen and then will need to be eaten.


Refrigerated avocados that are ripe will only last for 2-4 days.

  • 4-6 Strips of Bacon
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2-1 Teaspoon Chili Powder


  • Heat the oven to 425
  • In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and chili powder.
  • Set aside
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil.
  • Cut open the avocado and remove the pit.
  • Slice about 3/4" slices lengthwise through the avocado, and then cut through the middle to cut all of the slices in half so that you have thick chunks of avocado.
  • Cut each slice of bacon in 3-5 pieces and wrap each piece around the avocado.
  • Roll in the brown sugar mixture and place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven to a platter and stick a tooth pick in each for serving.



I pit my avocados by smacking my blade into the pit and giving it a quarter turn. The pit pops right out leaving the perfect flesh behind. Depending on the size of your avocado pieces and length of your bacon you may get a different number of chunks of bacon. I wrap an end around the first piece of avocado just to measure and then cut all of the bacon together accordingly.

  10. I do not have access to pre-cooked bacon so I did it myself. I ran the bacon under cold water then baked it until it was partly cooked but still flexible. Before wrapping the avocado, I sprinkled it with salt, pepper and lime. Turned out great and works well with my keto lifestyle.

  11. Suggestion: poach egg, fry bacon, slice avocado (separately!). Put on plate.
    It will take a LOT less time and look more appetizing than the mess that I ended up with, after valiantly trying to hold it all together with forks and toothpicks as it started to fall apart in the pan, only to collapse completely when I transferred it to the plate. LOL

  12. I discovered this post only yesterday. I see you’ve thought about Bacon Wrapped Avocados earlier than us. But I don’t expect you to end your discussion on the specific matter so soon. Can’t you please share more of your insights into it. Really, our neighbor groups who visit our website- Spottingpro oftentimes would be happy. Thanks a lot, Carrian!

  15. That’s a good idea with advocado wrapping. I often fry bacon with okras, they are really delicious together. Especially, you should try with green salt pepper sauce.
    Next time, I’m gonna try with advocado! It looks interesting 😋

  19. Do you know if this would work with turkey bacon?

  20. Do you cook the avocado still in the skin or do you peel it first?

  21. This looks so delicious! I am going to try them tonight. I think I’ll grill them though, I will use a grill pan that has the holes in it to keep them from incinerating! But I just love to grill BACON! haha! Just seems to make it even more smokey and crisp! First time I’ve seen your website and want to investigate further! =)

  22. Oh my goodness, these look absolutely scrumptious! I bet the flavor is all throughout the center of the avocado! I have an avocado in the fridge that HAS to go, so this will be an excellent snack tomorrow! Thank you so much for sharing <3

  23. Hi, can I make these in advance without the avocado going brown? Can I cook them then reheat slightly?!?

  24. Wow, my 2 favorite foods come together in a simple recipe. I am going to try this recipe but I am wondering how long these last before the avocado turns. I want to consume a few after a workout but not a whole avocado 🙂

  25. Ohhh, two of my favorites – bacon and avocado! What a great combination! This is definitely going on the menu this week!

  26. OH.MY.GOODNESS. This sounds absolutely fantastic! Do you think that I could leave out the sugar (whole30)?

  27. Wow! Looks superdelicious!


  28. Hello,

    Is there a substitute for sugar that we can use? Thanks!

  29. Wow this was so good! Such yummy flavors, mmmm…. I left a couple for my husband but now I’m wondering if I should just eat them

  30. Can you leave out the chilli powder or substitute it with something else that is not hot or spicy? (For those with allergies or cannot have hot or spicy foods 🙂

  31. Your recipe sounds delicious, however I do have a question concerning whether on not the bacon is crispy before the avocado turns bitter as I have heard that avocados can get bitter if heated too long. Have you ever tried your recipe using pre-cooked bacon?

  32. Those look delicious! Can attest that they taste delicious too! My wife made them for me using your recipe. Want to see?
