As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.

Brunch is a big part of my life. And that sounds so snooty, doesn't it? But you see, for me... Family + Friends = Brunch. And that's not so snooty, right?

I know how to feed a Brunch crowd. Chilaquiles to Lemon Curd.

People say my bacon is perfect. And maybe that’s setting the bar pretty high. Or snooty to even mention. Either way, I needed a new dish. So what’s a Brunchanista to do?

Invent something new! And not just the dish... the name too.

The Bomblette (pronounced BOMB-let) is “the bomb” of Brunch dishes. We’re talking a baked, rolled omelet filled with bacon, green chilies and cheese, topped with an easy-to-make California Avocado Salsa Verde and even more fresh California Avocado.

Yeah. I went there.

An explosion of flavors. A work of art. All rolled up and covered with avocado, The Bomblette looks impressive but is actually quite simple to prepare.

What isn't exactly simple is getting the baked eggs out of the pan and rolling them up. You’re going to need a little finesse. And practice never hurt anyone. Try parchment paper or cooking spray and definitely use a non-stick baking sheet.

Super simple is the California Avocado Salsa Verde that utilizes a few convenience products for maximum time savings and maximum yum. No finesse required. Best of all? The wide eyes of your friends and family as you bring The Bomblette to the table. The gasps as they admire the culinary masterpiece of Avocado, Egg and Bacon. The eruption of laughter when they understand, “Bomb + Omelet = Bomblette.” And of course, the smiles and muffled praise as they devour your biggest Brunch achievement yet.
