There’s been this phenomenon trending on recipe website as well as fitness websites. Eggs baked in an avocado.
So I thought, why not. I like eggs and I like avocado. It seemed easy and to be honest quite brilliant.
Egg baked in an avocado
1 avocado, halved
Deseed an avocado.
Scoop out a little avocado making a well big enough to fit an egg in each avocado half.
Crack an egg and pour it into the hole.
Place avocado halves onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 until the egg reaches the consistency you prefer.
Makes 2. Calories: 216, Carbohydrates: 8 grams, Fiber: 6 grams, Protein: 8 grams.
That is a lot of calories. But man, that is a great way to start your day. It’s satisfying, it’s high on omega 3 and look at that fiber. Fiber is what keeps you full. There’s almost as much fiber as there is carbs or protein. Damn. No wonder the fitness world is going crazy over this breakfast. It’s the definition of a perfect breakfast.
Be sure not to pick an overly ripe avocado. The riper the avocado the more it turns to mush and tastes a little rotten.
Make sure you make a well big enough to fit the egg or else it will not fit and spill. Also make sure you prop the avocado straight and not to the side. If it is a little to one side, the egg white will overflow while baking.
If you like sunny side up, bake for about 5 – 10 minutes. If you like a hard boiled like egg, bake for longer.
If you over bake using an overly rip avocado, the egg and avocado gets all mushy and rough. Then the taste gets all funky.
And no one wants funky eggs and avocado.
