Avocado Roast Beef Baguette



What to make with leftover avocado? Well. I usually make guacamole, and from there, the step is never far from our darling Quesadillas. But as that was what the avocados were leftover from, we wanted something else. This came to mind. It's very non-involved, and absolutely yummy.

Avocado Roast Beef Baguette
for 2

1/2 baguette, sliced lengthwise and toasted
2 avocados
half a lemon
cherry tomatoes
8 thin slices of roast beef
1/2 red onion in thin half-moons
basil

Mash the avocado with the lemon juice, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Spread this on the baguettes. Top with red onion, roast beef, tomatoes and basil. Bliss out.

Oh my goodness, I love avocado and I love roast beef!! I use avocado instead of mayo on sandwiches all the time but I've never paired it with roast beef. What a great idea!

How do I eat this without making a mess? Looks good though!

Daniel - it *is* a little messy, but not too bad. Anyway, it's worth it!

oh my, anne, you've really made me drool here! not fair, since i am starving and have got absolutely nothing at home (that could qualify as a breakfast)! was just browsing through your recent posts and must say you're very lucky with all that crockery you got for the wedding - after 10 years of living together, I thought I didn't need any household stuff... but I didn't know then that you can never, ever, grow tired of kitchen peraphernalia!
