Steps To Make Cream Cheese Avocado Bacon Bites:

Step 1: Start by frying the bacon until it’s perfectly crispy. Let it rest on a paper towel-lined plate, then crumble it once it’s cool enough to handle. This step is crucial for that addictive crunch in every bite.

Step 2: In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese on medium for 2-3 minutes until it’s fluffy and creamy. This is your base. Now, fold in all the other filling ingredients except the avocados. You want to mix these gently at the end to maintain their shape, giving the bites those delightful avocado chunks.

Step 3: Once your avocados are folded in, let the mixture chill. Then, with joy and maybe a little dance, shape them into balls. It’s messy, but oh, so fun!

Step 4: Create a little assembly line for your coating – flour, buttermilk-egg mix, then breadcrumbs. Each ball gets a dive in each station. It’s like dressing them up for their big debut.

Step 5: Heat your oil and carefully fry these beauties until they’re golden and irresistible. The aroma alone will gather everyone around the kitchen.

Step 6: Serve these golden bites of joy warm with a side of your favorite dipping sauce. Watch them disappear and bask in the compliments.
