I chose Egg Baked in Avocado, mostly because brunch is probably my favorite meal and avocado is one of my favorite foods. If you pay better attention to your cooking time and watch the egg carefully, you'll end up with nice runny egg yolks paired with creamy avocado. I like to have some toast handy to spread the avocado and egg on for easy eating. Delicious, filling and good for you!
Eggs Baked in AvocadoBy Curious Cuisiniere
2-4 slices of bacon
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven broiler and place your oven rack in its lowest position.
In a small skillet, fry bacon until desired crisp-ness. (We’re so-crispy-it’s-nearly-burnt people.) Remove from pan, let cool, and crumble into pieces.
Halve the avocado. Remove pit. Remove about half of the interior pulp, to create a bowl large enough to hold one eggs. Leave a layer of avocado intact to surround the egg.
Place avocado halves into a oven-proof bowl or small baking dish. You want to make sure the halves stay upright so the egg doesn't spill out.
Crack one egg into a small bowl. Pour egg from bowl into the hollow you have cut out of the avocado half. Repeat with second egg and second half. Feel free to crack the egg directly into the pit.
Top each egg with the crumbled bacon and a little salt and pepper.
Place baking dishes on a baking sheet in the oven. Broil for 10-15 minutes, until egg is firm, checking frequently to be sure the egg is not burning (be careful!). Remove from the oven and serve with toast.
