Avocado over easy

avocado over easy

A protein packed breakfast – egg baked in an avocado. Looks super fancy, but it’s so easy!

Ingredients: (2 servings)

-1 avocado
-2 eggs

Optional Toppings:

-Hot sauce (Sriracha and Frank’s Red Hot are both gluten free)
-Red pepper flakes
-Ketchup
-Parmesan cheese
-Shredded cheese

Directions:

– Preheat oven to 425
– Cut avocado in half lengthwise
– Remove pit by hacking with a knife (here’s a helpful how-to remove pit video)
– Scoop out 1-2 tbs spoons worth of avocado to leave enough room for a full egg
– Sit your avocados in something sturdy so they stay up right in the oven (use a small dish with high sides, or make a little boat out of tinfoil)
– Crack an egg over the center of the avocado and place in the oven
– After 5 minutes, check on your egg.. if the whites have turned white your egg should be ready and will have runny yolk
– If you want your yolk fully cooked, let it bake for another 5 minutes

(in terms of toppings  – add cheese  or red pepper before it goes in the oven, but dont add hot sauce or ketchup until it comes out)
