Spicy Baked Eggs in Avocado

March, 2017

Who needs toast when you’ve got an avocado boat? Warm, spicy and baked to perfection. Give these a try.

  • 3 avocados, halved and pitted
  • 6 small eggs (large eggs will overfill the avocado hole)
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 red chili pepper, seeded and minced
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Chopped cilantro, to garnish

Preheat your oven to 400˚F, and drizzle a little oil onto a baking tray. Next place the avocados cut-side up on the tray, spacing them evenly apart. If the avocados are stubbornly tippy, cut a thin slice off their bottoms to stabilize them. Crack an egg into each avocado hole, top with the scallions and chili peppers and season with salt and pepper.

Carefully transfer the tray to the preheated oven, and bake the eggs for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on how runny you like your yolks. Garnish with chopped cilantro, and serve with thick slices of grilled bread and your favourite salsa.
