"I had these clever breakfast treats at a brunch gathering. They are easy to make for just two people or for a crowd. You can double or triple this recipe for a crowd. I use a muffin tin to hold each avocado half if I am making several of them." — Doughgirl8

avocado, halved and pitted
salt and ground black pepper to taste
crumbled cooked bacon
chopped fresh chives
After a few changes I really like this. One is I placed the ramekins in a pan of water while cooking, cooking time will likely need to be increased if you use refrigerated ingredients, and I didn't carve out the avocado. I cracked the egg into the avocado and used a thin knife to cut the white and let it run down in the ramekin. I also seasoned the entire avocado half, inside and out with seasoned salt. I added some chopped precooked turkey sausage. And sprinkled a little finely diced onion over them, a few slivers of Parmesan cheese, and topped with a little paprika for color. What's not to like? Mmmmmm.
Hmmm thought this would work...Pretty but not a winner for us. It took 30 minutes (checked them earlier and the yolk was done but the white was liquid) to cook the eggs through and it really had an unappealing outcome. Just not our taste I guess, and we love every ingredient in this....just not the sum of the ingredients and method.
Made this recipe today according to instructions. First off, don't use x-tra large eggs. This was all I had so had to remove some of the egg white in order not to spill over. (And yes, I carved out more space in the avacado). There is no way this dish is ready after 15 mins of baking. Unless you want to eat runny egg whites. I baked mine for 35 mins. The final end product just was not that tasty. It may work better to add onions and cilantro ie to avacado and bake and simply add a fresh cooked egg on top after baking.
Very easy and healthy to eat. This is also a kid friendly breakfast. You can also use this for a brunch side.
However I did mine a full 20 mins. At 450F. It's perfect every time!
We've been watching recipes for this combo for awhile & always wanted to try it. I have to admit our first attempt was unsatisfactory. However, that was primarily due to: a)our 1st time; b)avocado being too ripe; c) cooking temp too low; d)frustration when adding egg to avocado half & trying to transfer them to the oven without chaos. All I can say is try it more than once & don't be afraid to experiment a little. Because our subsequent meals of baked avocado w/egg & an addition -if any- of choice have been well worth it!
Good recipe, very tasty. I added a thin slice of cheddar on top. It took 30 minutes for the egg white to set at 425 degrees. One does have to scoop out more avocado than one imagines in order for a medium size egg to fit without spilling over. I'll be making this again.
