Paradise Grove California Hass Avocados - Avocado Quiche Recipe - Review & Giveaway - ends 7/23 US

I received a complimentary 6 lb. case of California Hass Avocados from Paradise Grove for this review.



Being a native Californian, I grew up loving avocados.  They were always fresh and so creamy good.  Many times I got my avocados straight from our neighbors tree that hung over our yard.  We would always make delicious avocado dip from them. Lately, I have noticed in the stores, that most of our avocados have been coming from out of the country.  I know that California is loaded with avocado groves, and I decided it was time to search out a grove to see if I can get them shipped right to my door.


My search was complete when I found Paradise Grove Avocados.  Here I found a great site that I can order real California Avocados shipped directly to my house.  Paradise Grove Avocados is located in the picturesque Santa Ynez Mountains which is north west of Santa Barbara, California.  There they have 25,000 avocado trees that basque in the plentiful California sunshine while receiving cool breezes from the Pacific Ocean.  This is perfect avocado weather to raise bountiful harvests with large fruit.


I was so fortunate to review a full 6 lb. case of beautiful and LARGE Avocados.  They come to you hard, and they do need to ripen.  I was told to add some avocados in a brown bag with a ripe banana to ripen up a few, and let the rest sit.  With the weird hot and humid weather we have been having, the avocados in the case ripened before the ones in the bag did!  But that's OK with us.  We will just get them halved and skinned, and ready for the freezer in vacuum sealed bags to use for when we get back from my daughter's wedding.


These avocados are so smooth and creamy.  We made avocado dip the other night for our tacos.  What a treat they made our dip into!  So much better than what we have been getting in the stores.  Tonight my husband, who is the cook in our home since he was once an executive chef, made an Avocado Quiche for us.  It was simply scrumptious.  I took down the recipe that he did as best as I could.  I really had to watch him like a hawk.  He usually just makes things off the top of his head, and never uses recipes.  You are so fortunate to be able to get one of his creations.





Avocado Quiche

1 Pie Crust for a 9” pie pan
6 slices of bacon chopped
2 Paradise Grove Avocados
6 Eggs
1/4 Cup Diced Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Cooked Corn (or any vegetable that you would like)
1/4 Cup Cream
1/8 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp granulated Onion
1/2 tsp granulated Garlic
4 Cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Bake the pie crust until it is half done at 350 degrees, about 10-12 minutes, and then set aside.

Fry the bacon until crisp.  Take the bacon out of the pan saving the grease.  Fry the sliced avocados in the bacon grease.  Season the avocado slices with some salt, pepper, onion, and garlic (or other spices if you wish).  When done, take out of the bacon grease and set aside.

Arrange around half of the sliced fried avocados on the bottom of the half-cooked pie crust, smash them down if you wish, and then set aside while you make the quiche filling.

Quiche filling: Scramble the six eggs, and then add the diced tomatoes, corn, cooked bacon, the rest of the fried avocados, cream, salt, pepper, onion, garlic, and the shredded cheese.  Stir together.  Put this mixture on top of the sliced avocados in the pie pan.  You may have some filling left over, don’t worry about it.  Just cook the extra in a pan, or save it to make an omelet with it.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes or until filling is set.  It will be a little moist, so try not to overcook.  Cooking time really depends upon your stove.  We have an electric range, and we find that the cooking time can be quite different from a gas stove. 

We garnished ours with some guacamole dip made from the Paradise Grove Avocados that we had the previous night.

Refrigerate any leftovers.

All ingredients are not precise measurements.  I visually measured them as he through things together.  You may have to do a little bit of adjustment to some of the spices.
