When a packet of turkey mince came on sale, I could not resist that $3 price tag for 500 grams. It’s fresh AND free range. Coming home though, I decided to pair it with something expensive… an avocado that costs the same price as the mince itself!
Avocados has come down in price a little since then but boy oh boy was an avocado precious when it was going for $3 or $4 per fruit. I came to realise how much our family love this. We baked it with eggs, we have it for breakfasts or in salads.
Anyway, I think the winner of this dish was the pineapple and avocado combination. That citrus tang from the pineapple and creaminess of the avocado with turkey seems to work.
Asher has started finger foods too and this is perfect for him to hold and munch on. I usually leave out the salt for his portion. Messy too!
