Are you looking for a delicious appetizer for your Oscars party this weekend?! Well look no further because I’ve got you covered on this one! These earthy little morsels get a facelift in this recipe after you slather them with a healthy dose of olive oil, bake them, stuff them with a creamy avocado filling and add some salty, crunchy prosciutto to the mix! Holy drool!

This appetizer packs an amazing punch of flavor and is so cute to boot! Who doesn’t love crispy pork on top of everything? I mean, they even make bacon flavored ice cream because it rocks! Ok, well maybe if you’re Vegan, but even they miss pork because they make bacon flavored coconut and veggies! Once you pop you really cant stop with these babies, but you don’t have to worry because, unlike Pringles, they’re good for you, shhh!

These could also easily be made into a meal by using portobello mushrooms instead of the baby bellas and be equally if not more delicious! So, give them a go and let me know what you think!
