Scarbelly's Smoked Nuts & Avocado-Cornbread Muffins

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

THANK YOU SCARBELLY !!!

 

 

 

I got a care package from my Buddy "Scarbelly" last week---What a guy !!!!

Gary sent me a bag of his Awesome Smoked Mixed Nuts. They didn't last long, as my Son helped devour them during the Penn State game.
 
He also sent me some Avocados!!!
I never had Avocados before, and I tried just tasting it fresh, but it didn't thrill me.
However, Gary also sent me a couple of Avocado recipe links, so I had all kinds of options to use these beautiful California Avos with.
 
As you will see below, my favorite was the Avocado-Cornbread Muffins. They were very good, and even better after I poured a little real maple syrup on them, and nuked them up a little!!!
 
I also stirred up a mixture of Salsa & Avocado for a pretty tasty Dip to use on some "Scoops".
 
I didn't take any pictures of the nuts, but here is a link to a great thread.

 I did take some pics of my Muffin making (Below), and the Salsa.

 

 
 
 

Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup cornmeal
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup whole milk
1 large ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, mashed

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 12-muffin tray.

2) Sift together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in eggs and milk until smooth. Add avocado and mix until just smooth.

3) Pour mixture into prepared muffin tray. Bake until tops turn golden, about 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in tray; remove to wire rack to cool completely.

BTW: I didn't have any "Whole Milk", so I used 2 ounces of Butter Milk, and one ounce of 2% Milk---Worked Great !
 
 
 
Thanks A Lot Gary----You're the Greatest !!!
 
And thank you all for looking,
Bear

We love avocados, grow our own.

 

Course they're not "California", but they are darn good.

Those look perfect for St. Pat's Bear. For anytime really. I never heard of an avocado corn muffin before. Sounds interesting. Long time no see Squirrel. Hope all is well.

Glad you liked them.

NEVER HAD AN AVOCADO!!?? LOL

 

Damn I grew up on them things, I swear my mom probably juiced them and put them in my baby bottle.... lol. (I am originally from Santa Barbara.... lots and lots of avo's around there).

 

Another fun one is to find somebody who has never eaten an artichoke and plunk one down in front of them, then watch their face as they try to figure out what the heck it is and how to eat it... lol. (not that I would ever do anything like that.... lol)

Wow, those muffins look awesome!  I would slice them puppies and fill them with some kind of a shrimp concoction, ...we have an avocado tree, couple a more months and I'll be trying this recipe for sure.

 

I have Gary's smoked nuts on the To Do soon list, I'll probably try them before the muffins.

 

Good to see ya trying something new, ...soon you will be cooking a 5 course meal.  LOL

I know about Artichokes & their hearts.

Twenty years ago, when my Dad was on his last leg, he was eating a lot of them. He thought they would save him. It didn't work.

RIP, Dad.

Master Bear,

You are truly a Master of food in all ways. Pit...grill...and now oven!

I could eat that whole tray of muffins. I never met an avocado I didn't like but never tried muffins

But they sure look fine. Thanks for the look see.

Thanks Brian,

The muffins were definitely the best of what I tried.

I like Gene's idea with throwing a couple shrimp in them!!!
