Deliciousness from Saratoga Springs, NY.. an appetizer you won't soon forget!

Do you love avocados?   Sun-dried tomatoes?  Brie cheese?   fresh bread?  Well, if you answered yes to at least three of these questions, then you will absolutely love this appetizer..  Not only does it taste amazing, but it looks beautiful and is really easy to shop for and put together.  How can you lose?

Start with some yummy fresh bread.  You can get the french baguettes, or some sort of Italian crusty sub roll, but whatever you get, make sure it isn't too big or wide.

Cut off the top of the roll, and try to hollow out enough of the bread to create a shell.

Next, you are going to cut open an avocado and remove the pit.  The easiest way to get the avocado out of its skin is to take a large spoon and slide it into the bottom end.  Push the spoon forward as you move it from left to right, loosening the avocado from its skin.  Slice the avocado and lay it in the cavity you have created.  Now cut up some sun-dried tomatoes for the next layer.

The last ingredient is the Brie cheese.  I had bought a whole wheel of Brie, and cut it in half.  I cut long slices and laid them over the top.  You can either sprinkle any seasoning you want (basil, oregano, parsley...) or just salt and pepper  before cooking.  

These need to go into a hot, 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes.  Check every so often to make sure nothing is burning!  If the cheese isn't melted by then, turn the oven up to broil, but please don't leave it in too long.
