Healthy Breakfast : Baked Eggs in Avocado
Eggs, small to medium size – 2
Ripe avocado – 1
Bacon, diced (optional) – 2 slices
Green onion, diced- 1
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oven to 350F/180C degrees.
Slice the avocado in half.
If necessary, scoop out each avocado hollow so it’s about the size of the egg. Oh, and eat the scoopings! Place the avocados in a baking dish so they’re level, stable, and they don’t tip.
Break two eggs carefully into the hollows. Suggest you poke the yolks with a knife to break them, so the egg will cook faster and more evenly.
Bake until whites are set and yolks are still runny, about 10 to 12 minutes. If you prefer a hard cooked egg, bake about 15 -20 minutes. If your eggs or avocado are chilled, allow for a longer baking time.
Fry 2 slices of chopped bacon, if using.
Remove from oven. Garnish with green onion and bacon, if using.
