Food Friday Featuring Eggs Baked in Avocados!
Ever since my girls were babies they have LOVED to eat avocado. It is such a creamy, buttery, rich and healthy food that can be added to almost anything and it’s a super snack on its own. One of the cleverest ways I have discovered is to bake an egg inside the half of an avocado and then dress it in different ways. Sort of like an updated “frog in a hole”. There are many different examples of this idea and Pinterest is a great source for a step by step photo guide. I usually prepare this meal for my girls as a special weekend breakfast, making it as simple as possible with a little salt and pepper and some melted cheese on top.
- 2 avocados
- 8 eggs
- 2 limes
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 450.
- Cut each avocado in half and remove the pit. Using a spoon, scrape out the center of each halved avocado so that it is large enough to accommodate an egg (about 1 1/2 tablespoons). Squeeze lime juice over the avocados and season with salt, then place on baking sheet. Break an egg into the center of each avocado.
- Bake in the oven until whites are set and yolk is runny, about 10 to 12 minutes.
