Avocado Egg Boats

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados halved with pit removed 
  • 4 medium eggs 
  • salt and pepper to taste 

Optional toppings:

  • 2 strips of bacon diced and cooked till crispy optional 
  • 1/2 red bell pepper finely chopped 
  • 1/4 cup spinach chopped 
  • chopped fresh herbs for garnish 


Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet or baking pan with foil or parchment paper (for easier cleanup).
  3. Cut avocados in half and scoop an additional 1-2 tablespoons of the avocado flesh out to create a larger nest for the eggs.
  4. Position the avocado halves propped against the baking dish or touching the other avocados snugly to avoid spilling over. You can also place a small ramekin and prop them against the avocados.
  5. Gently crack one egg in each avocado half - if needed - save some of the egg whites in another bowl if the avocado well is too small.
  6. Bake for 13-18 minutes, or until the whites are set and the egg yolks are cooked to your liking.
  7. 13-14 min. - softer yolks
  8. 15-16 min. - medium yolks
  9. 17-18 min. - hard-boiled yolks
