Baked Avocado & Egg

I have been on a major avocado kick lately. For some reason, I just can’t seem to get enough of them! I’ve been doing some experimenting with different ways to enjoy avocados and stumbled across the idea for Baked Avocado & Egg’s. They were everything I had hoped they would be and more.

With just 3 ingredients you can whip these up and get your day started off right. I made these for breakfast, but they would also make an excellent light lunch or even just a snack.

These are super filling and taste excellent served with salsa on top. If your kiddo doesn’t typically like avocados, these are worth a try anyway. Once the avocado is baked it takes on a different consistency. It almost has a “fluffy” texture to it. It reminded me of a baked potato.
