Weekend Recipe: Baked avocado stuffed with eggs

coucou jolie recipes

 

This is a really easy dish to make.  It also looks fancy so that you can easily impress someone with it. Serve it with a toasted brioche or baguette and it will be so good.  It is great for a weekend brunch dish.  I like mine simple just with some salt and pepper but you can pretty much add any type of condiment you would like with eggs. It’s also very healthy.  Avocados have healthy fats that are good for your skin and hair.  They also have more potassium than bananas, which help with muscle recovery and lowering blood pressure. Avocados also have lots of fiber which help with a healthy digestive track, and they have lutein and zeaxanthin which help keep your eyes healthy.  Eggs are filled with biotin (the yolk) so that helps keep your hair, skin and nails healthy.  They also have lutein and zeaxathin that keep your eyes healthy.  They are an excellent source of protein.  This is a great dish if you are trying to eat clean and lose weight.

Ingredients:

1 Avocado
2 Eggs
Sea salt
Condiments (to taste)

Directions:

Halve your avocado and remove the seed.

Scoop out some of the avocado flesh (about 1 tablespoon, maybe a tiny bit more) If you do not take out some of the avocado, when you bake it it will spill out and become a huge mess.

So you have to have a hole big enough to fit your egg.

Put your avocados in a small baking dish. You want them to be sort of snug, so they do not tip over.
Crack one egg at a time into a small ramekin or glass.

Slide the eggs carefully into the holes of each avocado (Tip from my mom: Put a couple drops of hot sauce or whatever condiment you like in the hole before you add the egg, optional).

Season with salt and pepper and drizzle any desired condiments over the avocado halves (you could add pesto or something like that, get creative to make the recipe your own)

Bake at 450°F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until your egg whites are set and the yolks are still a little runny (if you do not like a runny yolk, then beat the eggs before you add them to the avocado).

The egg yolks will look uncooked so make sure to time them. You can even use a toothpick to make sure they are done, or undone.

Add more desired condiments or toppings (cilantro, scallions, and chiles) and enjoy!
