Eggs Baked In Avocado

Avocados are hands down one of my favorite snacks and a great addition to just about anything!  When I am getting ready in the morning, I will crack eggs into my halved avocado and toss them in the oven.  In 20 minutes, I have a vitamin packed breakfast that is great to spread on bread or simply to enjoy with a spoon!

One big tip I have is to scoop out about 1-1.5 tablespoons of avocado (wide not deep) to create enough room for your egg. Otherwise it will overflow!

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Heat the oven to 425 degrees.
Slice the avocados in half, lengthwise and twist to separate.  Remove the pit and scoop out 1-1.5 tablespoons of avocado, creating a larger cavity.

2. Gently crack one egg on top of each half.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Add your toppings!  I also added sesame seeds last minute! :)
