I want to bring an avocado mac & cheese to a pot luck, but I'm afraid the avocado will turn brown and look horrible by the time I get it there. Is there any trick to keeping it green?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Generally, it's a matter of keeping air away from it- by covering with plastic or submerging it, for the most part. Not sure how avocado mac and cheese would be composed, but that probably wouldn't be too practical. If the avocado is cooked, I'm not sure, but it would doubtless change the equation- guessing it would already be brown.
You could just wait to cut the avacado until you get to the event.

Avocado and mac and cheese is just a mismatch on every level. Baked avocado looks and tastes terrible. You could serve fresh avocado on the side with a squeeze of lemon. But flavorwise it's not a good pairing.
Pierino- Hey, you can't say stuff like that here, this is the Kumbaya corner. Serenity now...

I respectfully disagree with Pierino. Baked avocado is delicious.
I am thinking the preparation and baking the avocado in the Mac and cheese will preserve the color. Do you by chance have time to bake a trial recipe? I would if I were you.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
