Baked Egg in Avocado

Two staples in my household; eggs and avocados. We’re stuck inside because of the winter weather and that, of course, challenges me to use everything I have in my pantry and fridge first, before even thinking about going out for groceries. The people who have been following me for a while now, know that this is totally not a stressor for me; I actually enjoy finding recipes based on what I have in my pantry and I love to go grocery shopping when my fridge is almost empty. It’s my little attempt to help reduce food waste. Every little bit helps, right?! Anyway, to make a very long story short: I have an easy one for you today. It only has 2 main ingredients and can be dressed up any way you like. This egg and avocado dish will work great for breakfast and lunch and is made in a snap.

Ingredients for 2 servings

  • 1 large avocado, halved and pit removed
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • your favorite seasoning and or toppings. Examples: taco or creole seasoning, everything but the bagel seasoning, fresh basil, avocado crumbles etc.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  2. Flip each avocado side over, and slice off enough of the rounded skin so that it can sit flat when the open side is up.
  3. Place the avocados, open side up, on a cookie sheet or baking pan and crack some salt into each hole.
  4. Whisk the egg in a bowl and divide it between the 2 avocado holes.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and the seasoning of your choice. If you are adding additional toppings like bacon or cheese, do not yet add them now.
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes, until the egg has fully set. Don’t overbake!
  7. Add additional toppings if you like such as bacon crumbles, grated parmesan cheese or some fresh basil.
  8. Serve with a spoon and enjoy!
