Baked Eggs in Avocado

Avocado. The fruit of the gods. It's probably what Eve ate because I mean look at it. It's beautiful. It's creamy. It's packed with vitamins and healthy monosaturated fats. It goes with salads, burgers, tacos, pizza (yes. try it), smoothies, condiments. 

This dish would make a fabulous addition to a brunch/breakfast spread or is delicious all on its own. Plus it's super easy, tasty, and full of protein and good fats- so it's super filling.

There are so many ways to make this even better too! Add crumbled bacon or shaved Parmesan. Scoop it out hot and spread over warm French bread. Kick it up with chipotle hollandaise or just sprinkle with cayenne pepper. 

You get the idea. 

Oh, also, I used small avocados but this recipe would definitely work better with large avocados! 

What You'll Need:
serves 2
1 large Haas avocado 
2 egs
sea salt
freshly cracked black pepper

What To Do:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 

Slice avocado in halve, lengthwise. Remove the seed. If necessary, scoop avocado out of the center, forming a hole big enough for the egg. Lightly salt and pepper the avocado. 

Crack an egg into each half. Again, lightly salt and pepper. Place avocado in a small baking dish , or use aluminum foil to hold the avocado upright and to keep it from spilling. 

Bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are set to your preference.
