Looking for the perfect protein-packed breakfast or a quick snack? Try baking a pasture-raised egg in an avocado half.
Baked Egg in Avocado
Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit
Slice avocado in half and remove pit
Scoop out extra avocado flesh to make a reservoir for egg yolk and white
Crack open egg and gently separate the yolk from the egg white. Reserve white in a small cup and set aside.
Gently drop yolk into the scooped out portion of the avocado and season with salt and pepper
Pour reserved egg white around the yolk, filling the reservoir
Season egg white with salt, pepper, and chili flake
Place avocado on baking sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes, until whites are set. (For runnier yolks, bake for 15 minutes)
Enjoy with a slice of whole-grain toast and a generous dollop of your favorite salsa.
