Ingredients

This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Spread the bacon strips on the baking sheet and set them aside.
  2. Place the eggs in a saucepan and fill with cold water, at least 1" (2.5 cm) higher than the eggs. Cover, and bring to a light boil over high heat. Once boiling, remove the pan from the burner and let the eggs rest in the covered pan for 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, place the eggs in a bowl of ice-cold water for 5-10 minutes, or place in a colander and run under cold water until completely cooled. Peel, and set aside.
  3. Place the baking sheet on the middle oven rack and cook the bacon for 10-20 minutes (time varies depending upon the thickness), or until crispy. Drain the bacon on paper towels and when cool, cut into triangles, to form the sails.
  4. Slice the eggs lengthwise and scoop out the yolks. Place the yolks, avocado, and olive oil in a small bowl. Mash together with a fork until combined. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. To assemble, generously spoon or pipe the avocado yolk mixture into the egg whites, and set the bacon sails in the center of the mixture. Enjoy!

    I scramble
    5 whole eggs and 3 yolks in lots of butter
    Half a stick or 58 grams
    Quick and taste great
    I never get tired of eating a eggs
    Same macro nutrient ratio as this or pemmican

    80 percent fat and 20 percent protein with traces of carbs from the eggs

    5-7 days a week my breakfast is two eggs any way I want them, with clarified organic butter.
    O-2 days per week I add bacon or homemade pork sausage patties.
    Simple, satisfying, and easily gets me to my lunch bento box comprised of...
    Top tier: protein of the week, sauteed vegetables
    Bottom tier: carrots (or celery), 1 radish, cheese, assorted olives
    .
    I've been doing the above for two years and I've never felt better and I've never been stronger at the gym in my life.

    What do you do with the egg yolks?

    If I make this as an appetizer for a group, will the olive oil keep the avocado in the mixture from turning brown?
  11. Sandra
    Do you use the egg yolks with the avocado? Or do you just omit the yolks altogether?
  12. MimiB
    According to the recipe, you put the yolks in a bowl and mash them with the avocado. It's not completely clear as written, but using a bit of logic, I realized you're going to put the mix into the egg white shells, so it must be the yolks that are mashed. Yolks are a powerhouse of fats and nutrients. They are an amazing food. The whites have little fat.

    1 serving = 1/2 egg ??? that's for the whole breakfast?

    The serving size is just a suggestion. Feel free to eat more than half an egg!

    That's just a suggestion. The macro numbers are all low enough on this that you could have a larger serving.

    Yum!

    Hi there I’m nee to Keto and this recipe says 4 servings, does that mean I’m only allowed 1/2 a boiled egg for breakfast as I think I would starve on such a small quantity to eat, thank you Tracey

    Thanks for letting us know, Tracey. I shared your comment with our recipe team.

    Very hard to cut an egg on half. There needs to be some major work done to make the metric recipes you offer - which most of the world can use - not simply converted from the American measures of cups and eggs being divided. The metric also needs to be suitable for one person. In Britain and Ireland, for years we have been tod that you cannot mix one system of measuring for another.
