Rachael Ray: Estrella Restaurant-Style Bacon Wrapped Avocado + Eggs & Roasted Tomato Pico de Gallo

Rachael Ray explained that because her entire life revolves around food, she rarely has food envy. But the last time she did, she visited a place in L.A. called Estrella. She became obsessed with a dish that her friend was lucky enough to try, but she never got to. She has been drooling over the picture of Bacon Wrapped Avocado with Eggs ever since, and finally decided to try to make her own to satisfy her craving. Rachael is a huge fan of bacon, and the creamy avocado just seems like the perfect addiction to bacon and eggs! She also prepared a warm Roasted Tomato Pico de Gallo recipe to add to it.
