Baked Egg In Avocado

For this Saturday's brunch we experimented with a heart-healthy, high protein, low sugar breakfast that kept us full throughout the morning.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 fresh eggs
  • Dashes of pepper and salt
  • A few slices of mozzarella or cheese of your choice

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Slice the avocado in half and take out the pit. This is really easy to do by stabbing a sharp knife into the pit lengthwise and twisting. Just be careful of your fingers. I've learned that one the hard way a few times. Using a spoon, scoop out a bit more of the avocado if you want more egg white. Place avocado halves in a small baking dish.

Crack two eggs into a bowl, and using a spoon, gently scoop one yolk into each of the avocados. Drizzle a little of the egg whites until the holes are filled. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Served here with whole wheat toast and a spinach salad with tomato and blueberries.
