I’m so happy I decided to make these Baked Seafood Stuffed Avocados. First off, I love everything about them. The avocado, the crab, the shrimp, the Cabot White Oak Cheddar I added to the seafood mixture. Okay, the cheese did ooze out of the avocados a little bit during baking, but that can be fixed by hallowing out some of the avocado before stuffing if needed, and by making sure they are sitting flat in the baking dish. They can also be easily adapted to your liking, so for you baked seafood stuffed avocados might mean more crab meat, and less shrimp, or all shrimp/crab.

- 4 avocados, sliced in half length-wise and pitted
- 8 ounces chopped cooked shrimp
- 3.25 ounces flaked fresh cooked crab
- 1 cup finely shredded Cabots White Oak Cheddar
- 1/2 cup finely diced vidalia onion
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped shrimp, crab, shredded cheddar, onions, parsley, seafood seasoning, lemon juice, and eggs; mix well.
Spoon the mixture equally on top of each avocado half (you may have a little mixture remaining, depending on the size of your avocados). Place in a glass 9x13 baking dish without tilting the avocados, and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately.
