Someone so lean and green needs a lean and green breakfast, Fangirls. And since we all strive to be more like She Hulk, I thought it was necessary to share this recipe with you all. Plus, it’s one of my absolutely favorite things to eat, at any time of the day. It’s so damn good, and makes you feel good eating it. Breakfast can be overloaded with carbs & sugar, but when you’ve got cases to work through & days to save, there’s no time for all that hullabaloo.
This avocado-egg inception is quick, easy, and uses things you’ve likely got on hand most days. That’s assuming you’re like me and never go a day without your avocado stash stocked. I think any ‘cado lover will be on the same page. If not, though, he’s your grocery list:
2 slices of bacon (optional)
If you don’t want to get fancy at all, this recipe only requires the first three things for one serving. However, I like to kick things up a notch or two, and added a bit of bacon and some sriracha to my little avocado babes. How you top these is totally up to you, the possibilities are seriously endless. Dream all you can dream, and then put it on an avocado.
So, first, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Then, start working on your avocados. A whole egg won’t fit right in the hole left from the pit, so you’ve got to hollow out a bit of the flesh to make room. Not all of it, of course, that would be tragic. Just consider the size of the hole, the size of the egg, and scoop out however much you think is necessary. If it ends up spilling over a little, it’s not the end of the world. Below you can see the original size of the hole made by the pit on the left, and how I made it a little bigger on the right. Once your avocado is ready to receive the egg, crack two open, and place it all, yolk & whites, in the hole. I recommend doing this once the avocado is already on a baking sheet, just so you don’t have to worry about any egg spilling out in transport. Once it’s on the sheet, and have the eggs in it, crack some salt & pepper or any other seasonings you wish to add, and place those buddies in the oven.
You’re going to bake these for about 15 minutes. How long you leave them in the oven also depends on how you want your yolks cooked. I like mine a little runny, and 15 minutes worked perfectly. When they come out of the oven, I have a little gasp every time. It’s like a beautiful child being born.
While those had been baking, I cooked off some bacon until it was real crispy. When the avocado was done, I crackled some of that on top of the halves, and then added a few squirts of sriracha. In my opinion, this is the absolute best way to eat these avocados. But of course, you can pick your poison. I was splitting this avocado with someone else, so next to it you can also see the other half of my avocado, filled with some delicious homemade mango salsa. What a beautiful pair. I was thinking of it as a lovely She Hulk / Hellcat situation.
However you wish to serve these egg avocados, they are outstandingly delicious. It’s a fast, healthy breakfast in the morning. It can boost your metabolism, and perhaps it can even transport you into a euphoric & productive Jennifer Walters mindset. One can hope. If anything, you’ll have eaten a really tasty, healthy breakfast, which produces a few somewhat superhero like results, right?
