Ingredients 11
Servings 6


  • 3
    ripe avocados, halved and stoned
  • 1
    small banana, sliced
  • 250
    bacon, chopped and fried
  • ground black pepper
  • lemon juice
  • 175
  • 45
  • 3
    egg yolks
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1
    juice of a lemon


Place each avocado half in an individual bowl small enough to fit snugly. Divide the banana slices and bacon between the avocado halves and season with a little pepper and lemon juice. Melt the butter and skim off the foam. Beat the egg yolks and water together until light and foamy. Season and whisk in a double boiler over hot water until the mixture thickens slightly and the sauce falls in a ribbon from the whisk. Remove the top half of the double boiler from the heat and slowly beat in the butter, beating until the sauce thickens. Add the remaining butter (do not add the milky residue). Beat until well blended and spoon over the stuffed avocado halves. Grill under the oven grill set on medium until pale brown, taking care not to burn the avocados or filling. Garnish with extra diced avocado and serve immediately. Serves 6.
