SnapHappyBunny Cooks: Eggs Baked in Avocado

Being such a versatile fruit, another way to eat your Avocados is by combining it with eggs and baking it! Yes, it does not sound very matchy but trust, it’s super delish (and is a good quick breakfast or even a pre workout meal). Recipe is super simple and before I forget, I was inspired by Fitsugar.com for the recipe.

Ingredients:

•Avocado
•Eggs
•Chives/green onions
•Pepper or a pinch of cayenne pepper spice
•A little bit of sundried tomato pesto (optional)

•Turn on oven to 400-425F (preheat)
•slice avos in half, removing the pit, scoop out about a third of the flesh at the top to make room for the egg
•crack eggs into the hole you’ve made (you can only fit an egg per half of avocado and it might even overflow if you didn’t scoop deep enough or if you’re using those jumbo eggs)
•put them in a baking dish/pan and bake it in for about 20 min (depending on your oven’s heat) – you’ll know it’s done when the egg whites lose it’s translucent color and have turned white!
•don’t remove them just yet, sprinkle your chives and spices on top (I’ve seen others add cheese on this so you can definitely make it your own). Bake for another 5 min and remove to cool a bit.
•I ate mine with a tiny spoon of pesto and it just gave a fantastic flavour to it, I’ll for sure try other things to garnish this with but keep in mind, if you wanted a healthy alternative, you can definitely stick to the basic and not add so much. One avocado filled me up pretty good, good enough to tide me over till din time ^^
