Avocado Egg Bake

It is time for this months Improv Challenge hosted by Kristen at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. The two ingredients for this months challenge are bacon and eggs. When I realized I had not yet published this post but still had it as a draft, I decided it would be perfect for this months ingredients. It is truly a great idea for an egg bake! It uses the hollow created by the pit in the avocado as the cup for the egg! You can't hardly beat avocado, egg and bacon together. I found this recipe for Avocado Bacon and Eggs at Steak 'N Potatoes Kinda Girl. Since we love all these ingredients I knew it would be a hit. However, I would do one thing different next time. John's eggs I broke the yolks, mine I did not, so they did not cook evenly. His cooked faster. Either way will work but they all need to be the same. Also something to be aware of is that the avocado halves do not always sit balanced. I placed small bits of foil under the smaller end of the avocado to hold it up and prevent the egg from spilling out. Super yummy breakfast, just add some toast and your set!
2 lg avocados
4 eggs
salt and pepper or other seasoning to taste
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp

Preheat oven to 425 degrees, 400 for RV ovens. Cut avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop out enough of the avocado to make a hole large enough to hold the egg. Set aside the avocado that you scoop out.
Crack an egg into each avocado half. Break yolk slightly, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Crumble one slice of bacon on top of each egg. Bake for about 15 minutes or until egg whites are set.
While eggs are baking, mix reserved avocado with salt and lime juice to taste.
When eggs are done top with a little of the avocado mixture.
Serve and enjoy!

  2. I've never baked an avocado before. This sure looks like it should taste quite delish. Easy baked egg clean-up, too!
