Y’all, I looked for an egg stuffed avocado rap, but it turns out not too many folks are writing rhymes about that – but this one will work in a pinch.
Here’s How To Make (Basic) Avocado Baked Eggs
Wash and slice the avocados – and preheat your oven to 425.
Remove the pit, and scoop out room for the egg (about one tablespoon depending on the size of the avocado)
Now it’s time to figure out how you’re going to bake these.
You do not need special equipment – in fact – I encourage you to be as old school as possible here and think outside of the
box – um, baking pan.
One way you can do it is by positioning the avocado halves on a sheet pan very close together, so they don’t tip over. (If you go this route, expect some of your egg whites to spill over onto your pan. Because it’s going to happen.)
Or – you can position the avocado halves in – wait for it – a muffin tin flipped upside down – or you can use ramekins. It’s up to you.
Bake at 425 – for an average of 15 minutes, depending on your oven and how you like your eggs.
