If you are feeling up to something a little unconventional for breakfast and want a bunch of protein, try this out. Eggs baked into avocados with cheese, sesame, salsa and spices. Be warned: the avocado takes on a smoky flavour after it’s done being cooked, so if that isn’t your thing I don’t recommend this.
If the consistency is too soft for you, try eating it on a toasted bagel or with nachos! Since the flavour turns smoky throughout the avocado, this would be a pretty good topping for a burger as well.
- 1 avocado
- 2 small eggs
- Cayenne pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
- Fresh parsley to taste (and for garnish)
- Handful of sesame seeds
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/3 cup salsa
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Cut the avocado in half, lengthwise. Discard the pit and make sure there is enough space to fit the contents of the egg in the avocado; you may have to scoop some out.Sprinkle some assorted spices and some parsley on the bare halves.
Crack one egg into each half of the avocado (they can tip so be careful). Sprinkle sesame seeds, cheese and more spices on top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on how cooked you like your egg. I baked mine for quite some time because I didn’t want a “mushy” consistency. Let cool for a minute, and serve with salsa.
