I really enjoy avocadoes and bacon together. I just bought some to make my famous guacamole, which is never the same twice. We just picked up a recipe that calls for adding bacon to it. Putting it on top of a potato would make a complete meal, very filling and fresh.

I would love this but without the avocado I think this is the only thing in this world I do not like , I like everything else though pal and will give it a go , I love baked potatoes and make them for Ross and hubby quite often as they are a really good healthy food xx

That sounds lovely I'll have to try it I really like avocado's and had never thought of combining them with a jacket potato. Though I have had them in a baguette which is also really nice they must go well with bacon too.
