Baked Egg & Avocado

IMG_3239e Not only have I lately been on a lemon kick with my Glazed Lemon Squares, Ponderosa Lemon & Sour Cream Tart, Dark Chocolate Dipped Candied Lemon Peels and my Double Chocolate Meyer Lemon Mousse Cake but I’ve also been on a major avocado kick, adding it to a lot of salads, sandwiches, soups and other dishes.  A while back I saw a picture of an egg baked in an avocado (sorry I don’t remember where so as to give credit) and the other morning I awoke dreaming of it so I had to make it.  IMG_3222eI cut an avocado in half, removed the pit and scooped out a bit of the flesh to make room for the egg.

IMG_3227eObviously I didn’t quite scoop out enough as my egg runneth over.  No worries though as I just used what my avocado could hold. I added salt and pepper and then I carefully transferred the egg filled avocado to the hot pan in the oven,

for each serving:

  • 1/2 an avocado, pitted and some of the flesh removed to make room for the egg
  • 1 small or medium egg
  • salt & pepper to taste

    Place a heavy bottomed oven safe pan in the oven and heat to 425 F.  Fill the prepared avocado with an egg and add salt & pepper to taste,  Once the oven is hot carefully transfer the filled avocado halves to the hot pan.  Cook for 10 minutes or until your eggs are at the firmness you desire.

  18. This looks wonderful and good for you too! Thanks for sharing at allergy free wedesday! Please provide a link to the party somewhere in your post. Hope to see you again next week!

  19. That is so dang simple and yummy! I saw it bouncing around last week but never commented. I keep forgetting to try it myself. What's not to like, right?

  20. Each time, I see this photo, I remind myself to make this. It looks so delicious. It is being featured, this week, at Bake with Bizzy.

    Time-wise, this is a dream. It probably takes two or three minutes to prepare and then 10 for the baking. Appetite satisfied 1-2-3. Sounds wonderful.

  21. This looks so yummy! I really need to try this!

    I hope you'll stop by this week's What's New Wednesdays and link up more inspiring things!

  22. Two of Greg's most favorite things - I'll surprise him with this on Father's Day for breakfast! :)

  23. Just tried this. The egg wasnt nearly done after 10 minutes it was still completely raw...Id suggest putting the timer on for at least 15 mins. And Im not sure how I feel about the taste, its not bad though.
