Baked Avocado Boats
This simple breakfast combines two of my favorite foods avocado and eggs, they are the perfect way to start the day. I love avocado and I couldn’t resist the urge to turn them into a complete meal. Other toppings include mushroom, capsicum, spinach or cheese.
Avocado has an insane amount of health benefits! It is packed with more potassium than bananas, loaded with healthy fats, high in fibre, rich in vitamin C and packed full of anti oxidants. For more avocado recipe inspiration, take a look at the 5+ A Day website here
3 ripe avocados, pitted and halved
3 slices bacon - optional
1 tomato, roughly chopped
¼ cup parsley, finely chopped
freshly chopped chives for garnish
salt + pepper
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees fan bake.
Place avocados in a baking dish, then crack eggs into a bowl. Using a spoon, transfer yolks to each avocado half, then spoon in as much egg white as you can fit without spilling over. Place bacon in the same baking dish next to the avocados.
Season avocados with salt and pepper and bake until whites are set and yolks are no longer runny, about 20-25 minutes.
Chop the bacon into small pieces and sprinkle over avocados with the tomato, parsley, chives and lime juice. Serve with a spoon.
