Breakfast is the most important and just so happens to be my favorite meal of the day. When I have to leave home for early morning clients, I typically make a green smoothie to-go. On the days when I have the morning off or have a later start, I enjoy taking the time to make a sit-down breakfast like this delicious Avocado Egg Bake!
Avocados and eggs are the perfect combination for a morning meal as they are packed with protein and fiber, that will keep you satisfied until your next meal. Try this easy recipe and feel free to use your favorite toppings like tomatoes, basil, cheese, and bacon.
Prep Time: 5min
Cook Time: 15-20min
– 1 medium size avocado, halved and pitted
– 2 eggs
– salt and pepper to taste
– red pepper flakes (optional)
– 1tbs feta cheese (optional)
– 1 tsp chives (optional)
1 — Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
2 — Scoop out a small portion of the center of each half of the avocado with a spoon.
3 — Crack 1 egg open into each half of the avocado, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
4 — Bake 15-20min, then top with red pepper flakes, chives, and feta cheese (or your favorite toppings) and serve.
Tips: Make sure your avocado is a big enough size to be able to hold the eggs. Also, be sure to use a baking pan that can support your avocado to prevent the eggs from spilling off the side. I tried to use a tray at first and my egg was spilling so I opted for a cupcake baking pan and placed foil inside to keep the avocado halves in place.
