Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (200°C).
  2. Cut avocados in half and remove the pit. Remove almost all of the flesh to enlarge the hole on each half, as needed so that a whole egg will fit without spilling over. Set aside the avocado flesh for serving.
  3. Place avocado halves in a baking dish and crack an egg into each avocado hole. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the egg white is fully cooked and the yolk is cooked to desired doneness. Remove from oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes.
  5. While the avocados are in the oven, cut the bacon into smaller pieces and fry bacon in a skillet on high heat until crispy.
  6. Top the eggs with the shredded lettuce, avocado flesh, quartered tomatoes, and sprinkle with the bacon pieces.

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.

    Really enjoyed the flavours and textures but the baking process of the eggs in the avocado shell didn't quite work for me as it was quite fiddly to get the eggs not to tip the shells. Will try again but I think I will poach the eggs and place in the empty avocado shells before topping with the all the other items
