What’s even better than avocado toast? Baked Avocado Eggs! We used chopped chives, but please feel free to serve this baked egg dish with whatever fresh herbs, like cilantro and any other toppings that you may have available on hand. For those of you that like a hint of spice, a tablespoon of salsa or a little hot sauce would do just nicely!
2 ripe Haas avocados
1/2 a lemon
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, or a cheese of your choice
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 tablespoon chopped chives
Preheat oven to 425 °F.
Slice avocados in half and remove the pits. Using a large spoon, scoop out some of the avocado to make the center hole bigger.
Place avocados in a muffin baking tin, facing up.
Squeeze over the juice of the lemon over the tops of the avocado halves. This will stop them turning brown in the oven. Now crack your eggs into each of the avocado halves. Lightly season with salt and pepper, and top with a sprinkling of shredded cheese and bacon.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to your liking. Once they are done, let them stand for 1 minute before serving them.
Garnish with chives, serve and enjoy!
One of the many great things about avocados is the fact that they are really good for you. Being a healthy fat, they are high in omega 3 fatty acids which means they are perfect as a breakfast meal– packed full of protein, fiber, vitamin C, A and B-6.
