Baked Eggs in Avocado: This healthy, simple breakfast will keep you full for hours

Posted at 1:34 PM, Jan 11, 2021

Erika Schlick Sinclair from The Trail to Health says avocado and eggs are a match made in heaven.

When you put them together in this simple recipe, you will be full for hours with all the healthy fats.

She says you can pop them in the oven while you are getting ready for your day, and come back 15-20 minutes later to a nourishing breakfast.

Ingredients
2 avocados
2 small eggs
salt to taste
½ tablespoon of fresh chives

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425 F (218 C).
2. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits and spoon out some of the flesh. Place the avocado halves, hallowed sides facing up. You can place them in a small ramekin or use crumpled foil to hold the avocado halves level.
3. Crack an egg over a bowl and try to separate some of the white from the yolk. Pour the yolk into the avocado halves and spoon the whites in until the hallow is full. Repeat with the remaining halves and eggs.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the white is set but the yolk is still runny.
5. Season each avocado half with salt and chives. Divide between two plates and serve immediately.

You can find this and other healthy recipes in Erika's cookbook, Wandering Palate.
