    Fried Avocados sounds really really good. But, I suspect that as far as fat and cholesterol content is concerned it looks similar to fried butter. Oh well, sometimes we just have to enjoy.

    If you check the Nutritional info at the bottom of the page of the recipe, you’ll see that a serving (admittedly not very big) is only 271 calories with 14.2 g of total fat and only 2.7 g of saturated fat. It’s something different.
