Avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable. And they are packed with heart-healthy good fats.

Eggs, on the other hand, are a budget-friendly, high-quality protein among many different vitamins and minerals.

And when you combine these two elements, this becomes one of my favorite breakfast options.

Not only are they easy to prepare but they are packed full of everything you can possibly need for a healthy sustainable breakfast.

So put down the sugary-cereal, the proessed breakfast burritos – basically all that fake stuff – and start your day right.

You will notice a difference in energy and you won’t be reaching for those sugary snacks mid-morning!

Baked Eggs in Avocado

Ingredients:

  • 3 avocados, halved and seeded
  • 6 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Using a spoon, scoop out about two tablespoons of avocado flesh, or more, as needed, creating a small well in the center of each avocado.
  3. Gently crack 1 egg, and slide it into the well, keeping the yolk intact. Repeat with remaining eggs; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Place into oven and bake until the egg whites have set but the yolks are still runny, about 15-18 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.
