So I've been really enjoying avocados for a few months now, and I was wondering if anyone here enjoys them, and how? Obviously there many ways to eat them, personally I like them with just a little salt, in a wrap, or as guacamole, but seeing as how I currently have a bunch I was wondering if anyone had a non-traditional use for them that they like a lot. The most common way I've seen is to spread some on toast, but is there anything else?

I prefer Trump Steaks. Avocados are liberal fake stories.

I like them most any way. Usually just sliced up plain either on their own or in a sandwich or on a salad.

Trump steaks are snowflake steaks.

Usually cut up in a salad, or sometimes by itself with a squeeze of lemon and some pepper.

Mixed with a hard boil egg, onions, and lime. Just lime and salt. With beans and sour cream. Substitute for mayo. With fajitas. Guacamole. Practically anything, chicken, fish, rice, etc.

Got to try this! I eat three hard boiled eggs almost daily.

As for me: They're great in a salad or topping to a burger -- especially a bun-less burger.

Well, they have no taste unless you add lemon or spices and they are 32 percent fat. I skip them unless I'm drunk.

Avocados are amazing. Really good for you too. Chock full of potassium, and good fat.

I eat them by themselves with salt (and pepper), in wraps, in guac, as you said.

I also like to cut them up and put them in salads, with spinach, and usually grilled chicken, tomatoes, parmesan, and other things you like in a salad.

I also will occasionally blend one into a smoothie with bananas, or spinach, sometimes both.

Put guacamole on tostadas.

Put them in tacos too.

Another favorite of mine is using them to make mixtas. It looks weird but it's damn good. I grew up eating them.

As a substitute for mayo, what do you slice it open scoop and mash the insides into a spread?

My wife puts them in a blender and makes a smoothie out of them.

On a turkey sandwich with bacon...basically what you would call a "California Club" sandwich or a "BLAT"

Avocado has to be perfectly ripe, however. God help you if you serve me an under-ripe avocado.

Yeah it is a mild-flavored, creamy-textured fat. It's a good substitute for butter, mayo, etc.. I usually mash it, but sometimes blend it with some water and lime juice to make it a bit easier to incorporate (or some olive oil to make an emulsion).

I like it on toast instead of butter in the morning. It doesn't necessarily cut calories, but it puts the calories in the right place, if that makes any sense. You can also spread it on thicker than you can butter or you would mayo, so it's a lot more satiating.

Pretty much this. It's not that I hate them, I just think it's pretty pointless messing with them.

Good for you :) I just can't. My wife loves them. She puts them in her salad or in her Fajitas and sometimes I try it, but I just can't get into it. I also don't like guacamole that much. Sure if there some on my Nachos I can live with it, but I'd much rather have sour cream or (spicy) tomato sauce on them.

Mostly as guacamole. Although I do love them in California Clubs though.

You can make avocado work with just about anything.

I suppose I'd have to vote for the traditional Melbourne breakfast of smashed avocado on sourdough toast, topped with a couple of poached eggs (and possibly mushrooms on the side).
