{meatless monday – “the av-egg-ado”}

3 Mar


i saw this somewhere on the web recently and i’ve been so eager to try it. i mean – isn’t is so apropo for food & foto? simple, easy, delicious, and healthy!

two ingredients: {3 if you decide to sprinkle cheese on top…}

– 1 ripe avocado

– 1 medium egg




directions :

carefully cut avocado in half and remove pit. crack a fresh egg into the perfectly-sized hole from the avocado pit. bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for about 9-12 minutes, depending on how you’d like your egg.  top with a little S&P and devour immediately!  

i cracked my egg over a bowl because most of the white part just runs off anyway. i suppose you could wrap it in tinfoil and do it that way, i just like to conserve where i can. plus, the yellow part holds all the nutrients! i also just carefully set the av-egg-ado directly on a baking rack/sheet in the oven.  and i only made one half for this blog because i didn’t know if i had the appetite to eat both halves.  after all, avocados are way more filling than you may think. however – i totally did end up making and eating both… 😉


mine kind of turned out like a poached egg, which made me so happy!  poached eggs are my favourite, when done right.

this was such an easy and quick snack/meal/breakfast and i look forward to trying more, maybe with a little more pizzazz next time.  some fresh parm reggi or maybe chives from the garden or a tomato on top?!  the possibilities are endless, but one thing is for sure – this is one of those simple recipes where you’re like, “dude – why didn’t I think of that?!?!

if you have tried it and wanna share your favourite recipe, please do! or if you try this for the first time, let me know what you think!!  it’s honestly one of my new favourite things to consume.  how healthy, too! and if you can score some fresh farm eggs, all the better… {boy do i miss my dear chicken-owner friends, miss E and miss L.}

eggs eggs oh oh

😉 – get it?!

    I like this recipe! I add a thick slice of cheese on top at the end and move it under the broiler. Super filling.

    I saw this recipe last summer, and tried it too! Delicious! I just bought some avocados and have two eggs left from a friend who gave me a multi-colored pack. I’ll let you take a photo of my next dozen the next time she donates to me. Was wondering how I could use up my last two eggs, creatively. Voila!

    Missing you! I’m rich with eggs right now and the chives are popping… Herb Baked Eggs are a favorite and easy for a crowd- single serve ramekins (or oven-safe tea cups!) baked with whole eggs, chopped herbs, crushed red pepper, a splash of cream or Reggi.
