Baked Egg and Avocado

Dec, 31, 2012

I bet you all are preparing for New Years Eve festivities by now but if you looking for something festive to eat for tomorrow breakfast to celebrate the first day of the 2013 here is a great one. This is a dish I made for Christmas day brunch, and it was such hit that I have to post the recipe for it. I love the idea of eating an egg baked inside an avocado because not only is it a healthy way to eat breakfast but it also is so easy to make. These avocado bowls are so adorable and visually appealing.

You can top the avocado eggs with whatever seems good, but I made them slightly Mexican with chopped Swiss chard, tomatoes and cheese, and served them with hot salsa. Think of it as a breakfast taco wrapped up in an avocado. That’s a tortilla shell substitute worthy of a summer fiesta. If you want a healthier version, just hold the cheese.


Happy New Years Everyone!!!

Baked Egg in Avocado (per portion)

· ½ Avocado
· 1 Egg
· Dash of smoked paprika
· Salt and pepper
· Chopped Swiss chard
· Diced tomatoes
· Shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 425 F. Place a cast iron pan in oven and heat.

Cut avocado in half and remove pit. Depending upon how big the avocado pit is, you may want to scoop a little bit more of the flesh out of the middle and set aside. Crack egg into the middle. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

Remove cast iron pan from oven and place avocado/egg inside. Bake about 10 minutes, or until egg reaches desired consistency. When egg looks about done, sprinkle with Swiss chard, tomatoes and cheese, and bake until melted. Serve alongside salsa, fresh cilantro and hot sauce, if desired.
