Avocado Egg Cups
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been on an avocado kick. I’ve made bacon egg avocado cups before and loved them. This time I thought of placing eggs directly into the avocado shell for another breakfast treat.
I liked how these looked. Warm avocado, egg, some salt and pepper for seasoning. You can scoop and eat it with a spoon.
I even kept one of the egg yolks runny so it broke open and spread all over the avocado cup. Yum. Though of course you can cook them more if you want.
My one issue is that the avocado developed a slight bitterness from being cooked in the oven. I’ve noticed this when warming avocados though it was more noticeable here because there was so much avocado. Has anyone else had this issue?
- 1 large avocado
- 2 medium eggs
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice avocado in half lengthwise and place on baking sheet. Remove pit, and scoop some avocado out to make a deeper hole in each half. Crack an egg into each avocado shell half. If your eggs are big, remove some of the egg white before placing into avocado. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes until egg reaches desired doneness. Serve while warm.
