Chilean Love Butter

The first time I ever had Chilean Love Butter I was in Oyster Bay on Long Island for an extended getaway weekend with friends.  The pack I travel in religiously believes in a three-tiered approach to any of our gatherings.  The Pre-Party, the Party, and the Post-Party.  The Holy Trinity of our Enjoyment, the Father of our Good Time, and the faith in which we subscribe.

I don't remember the year, and I don't remember why we were together but I do remember three things very clearly.  The first, is that I was horribly hung over, swearing to myself and anyone who dared to get within three feet of me that tequila would never, ever, enter my body again.  The second that I had barely survived the Pre-Party and was sure only prayer would get me through the next two days.  And the third, that there is nothing better after a night of excess than Chilean Love Butter.

This morning I woke up, craving the Love.  The nice thing about Chilean Love Butter is that it only takes a few ingredients and five minutes to make.  I decided that I'd make egg white sandwiches on toasted Orowheat rounds with a big dollop of the Love Butter.  Here's what you need:
  • Ripe Avocado
  • Parmesan Cheese - fresh grated not the kind that comes in a can or in a box!
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Yes, that's it.  Four ingredients.  Seems simple but when they come together I'm telling you, it is total heaven.  Its really, really complicated to make.  Ready?
  • Mash up the avocado
  • Add the Parmesan cheese.  How much?  Keep tasting it.  When you taste the avocado and the zing of the cheese, you're there.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste.
Now, for me, I really love this on toasted sourdough, I mean real sour, sourdough.  But since I'm trying to go the whole grain route, we had ours on these toasted wheat rounds.

I cooked egg whites, toasted the bread, sliced up some tomato, threw on a dollop of the Love Butter and finished it with cilantro (yes, it goes on everything).


I realized today the Chilean Love Butter is equally as good on a Friday morning as it is the day after a really long night of Pre-Partying.
