Eggs Baked in Avocado

Posted by in Breakfast

Avocados have risen in popularity for the past several years here in North America. The most common type of avocado that is widely available is the Hass. It has a thicker skin, ripes slowly and keeps for long in the fridge or counter top.

It is also considered one of the superfoods since it contains a lot of nutrients and health benefits. Some of it would be for keeping a healthy heart, weight control and protection against certain cancer to name a few.

I learned to eat avocado in a savory way since we moved here to the Northeast. If you don’t know people in Asia eat avocados as a dessert or as a sweet mainly. My family loves to eat avocados for breakfast usually served on toast. I wanted to find other interesting ways to serve it and I came across this.

First, cut your avocado in half and remove pit. Scoop out some of the flesh from its center so that it’s large enough to accommodate an egg. Lay these on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Gently place the egg in it’s center. Bake in a 450F oven for 10-12 minutes until just set. Make sure to watch it if you like your yolks runny. Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley or cilantro on top. I served this with some whole wheat raisin bread and country ham.
