  1. In a large pot, add enough water to cover potatoes. Bring water to a boil and add potatoes. Boil for 20 minutes or until fork tender

  2. Once potatoes are done, cut each potato in half once more. Brush both the potatoes and the halved avocados with avocado oil. Bake at 350 degrees on a foil lined baking sheet for 5-7 minutes, until golden brown.

  3. Using a hand mixer or potato masher, mash baked potatoes in a large bowl. Scoop avocado flesh into mashed potatoes and stir to combine, being careful not to break the avocado skins.

  4. Add milk, Manchego cheese and bacon sea salt and mix thoroughly. Carefully scoop mixture back into avocado skins.

  5. Top with additional Manchego cheese, bacon crumbles, and a pinch of bacon sea salt.
