Baked Avocado and Egg

  • Baked Avocado and Egg Boats

    These are so pretty and delicious! It’s a healthy option for breakfast, lunch or even dinner and you only need a few ingredients. It would also make for a very pretty brunch and it’s actually quite filling. Avocados are loaded with omegas and eggs have one of the highest protein content of any food. It took me a few attempts to get it this right, so if your first try doesn’t work give it a second chance.

  • All you need is a large avocado, a few eggs and whatever seasonings you would like to use. I used salt, pepper and chili powder.

  • Preheat oven 425. Cut avocado in half and using a spoon scoop out some of the insides leaving a nice large space for the egg. (You can eat the insides while the avocados are baking!) Choose the largest avocados you can find and use medium or large, not extra large eggs. The first time I made this I didn’t scoop out enough of the avocado so I didn’t have enough room for the egg. If your avocado won’t lay nicely in the pan you can slice a bit of the skin off the bottom using a serrated knife, but this isn’t necessary if your avocado will stand without rolling over to the side. Season the inside of the avocado with salt and pepper. Crack each egg into a small prep bowl. This will make it much easier to pour into the avocado.

  • Rub or spray a little olive oil in the bottom a baking pan. Place your avocados in the pan and carefully pour in the eggs. If a little egg runs out into the pan no problem, just add a bit of water to the pan. Sprinkle more seasonings on top, place on middle shelf in the oven and bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Baking time will depend on your oven temperature and the size of your avocados so check frequently with a toothpick to get the desired firmness you would like. You might also want to turn your pan halfway through so the eggs will be cooked the same.

  • All baked and ready to eat! Serve with lemon quarters and your choice of garnish. I chopped up some tomatoes and green onions for garnish. Salsa and sour cream would be good too.

    Note: You can also make a scrambled version by whisking yolks and whites together in a bowl. Add some seasonings to the mixture and then pour into avocados. Maybe even a little cheese or bits of bacon. Yum!
