Can you bake avocado?
You bet! And it is good! Kind of like a baked potato waiting for you to add some fixings and gobble it up. Only it takes much less time and is ready in just about 15 minutes or less.
How To Cook A Baked Avocado With Egg In Oven:
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Sometimes the seed can be difficult to remove; the easiest way is to put the blade in the seed and twist to the side! Then remove the seed from the blade by pushing it against a cutting board. If you save the avocado pit, you can grow an avocado tree!
- Next, take a spoon or even a small tablespoon and scoop out some of the avocado. It is best to scoop to the bottom. This is so the egg does not spill out. If you have an extra large avocado, you can skip this step. Place in a baking pan.
- Slowly pour the eggs into the avocados.
- Shake some onion and garlic powder on top and pop those stuffed avocados into the oven.
- If you want a more cooked egg, then leave them in for 15 minutes. I personally enjoy mine a little runnier so I left mine in for about 11 minutes.
- Once the baked stuffed avocado is done take it out and let cool for a couple minutes. In the meantime dice 1 green onion; only use the green bits.
- Put the avocados on a plate and sprinkle the green onion on top with some crushed chili pepper for a little kick.
- Since this baked avocado with egg is somewhat like a healthy baked potato I added a little greek yogurt on the side. Greek yogurt is a perfect healthy substitute for sour cream and it adds tons of flavor!
This baked stuffed avocado with egg is such a hardy meal filled with protein, I hope you enjoy!
