Eggs Baked in Avocado

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 fresh eggs
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven for 425 degrees
  2. Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit
  3. Scoop out about 1-1 1/2 tablespoons of flesh from the center of the avocado, just enough so that the egg will fit snugly in the center
  4. Crack an egg in each avocado half ensuring that the yolk gets in first, then fill the rest of the free space with the egg white
  5. Season with salt and pepper (and maybe even a little red pepper for some added spice)
  6. Place the avocados on a baking tray and cook for 15-20 minutes (mine took exactly 17 minutes to bake to perfection)
  7. Remove from the oven and enjoy!
