Ingredients

  • 6 oz. 175 g bacon
  • 2 2 avocadoavocados
  • 4 4 eggeggs
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 4 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 oz. 30 g lettuce, shredded

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Fry the bacon in a skillet on high heat until crispy. Chop into small pieces. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  3. Cut avocados in half and remove pit. Remove some of the flesh to enlarge the hole on each half, as needed, so that a whole egg will fit without spilling over.
  4. Place avocado halves on a baking sheet and crack an egg into each avocado hole. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
  5. Top the eggs with quartered tomatoes then sprinkle bacon pieces.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the egg white is fully cooked and yolk is cooked to desired doneness.
  7. Remove from oven and serve the baked avocado eggs topped with the shredded lettuce.

Tip!

Having the bacon pre-cooked and chopped speeds the preparation.

Grated and melted cheese on top of the eggs when baking can make a nice addition.

Instead of lettuce, feel free to garnish with chopped cilantro, arugula or Italian parsley, as desired.

    I might try this again sometime, but my impression about this recipe is that the effort it requires doesn't match the result or the flavour. Even though this represents my personal opinion of course (and most likely other folks had a more positive experience than I did), I would like to leave some tips that I think would improve the preparation of this dish. First, make sure to use large avocados: my avocados were medium-sized and even after removing a considerable amount of pulp, it wasn't possible to fit a whole egg on each half (which made me decide to prioritise the yolk, obviously). Second, fry the bacon just till it gets slightly crisp: keep in mind that it will be used to top the avocado and egg ensemble and, if the bacon is already very browned, it will char after baking in a hot oven for 15 minutes. Third, the lettuce adds nothing to this, at least not as a topping over the hot avocados, as it quickly starts to wilt and loses its freshness, becoming insipid: perhaps it would be best to serve the lettuce on the side or simply substitute it for the suggested chopped cilantro (which has a flavour that can definitely handle the heat much better).
