Avocado Baked Eggs with Bacon Recipe

Makes 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 2 slices of turkey bacon
  • 2 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper as desired

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with a nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the bacon most of the way. Don’t cook it completely because it will bake in the oven also.
  3. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Spoon out the avocado around the area the pit was to make the crater larger. Set the avocado aside to enjoy on it’s own or as guacamole.
  4. Cut the cooked bacon strips in half and place two halves in each avocado.
  5. Crack one egg into each avocado. It’s ok if the white part runs out of the avocado slightly, just keep the yolk in the crater.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until eggs are cooked. The yolk will jiggle when you shake the pan, but the whites will be set.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a couple minutes. Be careful, as the avocado skin will be hot.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy 1 avocado half and share the other one with a friend! Enjoy!

Now before you head to the kitchen to whip up some bacon, avocado, and egg yummyness, I just have to share some health benefits of avocados and eggs. Avocados, while they do contain fat, it’s the healthy, monounsaturated fat that helps lower cholesterol. Plus, they contain over 20 vitamins and minerals per serving, which helps decrease your risk of cancer, lower your blood pressure, and fight off infection and disease. And the fiber in avocados helps you feel fuller longer + you’re getting those fiber benefits too!

Eggs got a bit of a bad rap a while ago, but they’re actually little protein powerhouses! In fact, they have what’s called the “Gold Standard” of protein, and the nutrients in eggs can also help fight diseases and help your memory. Yes, please! And if “build healthy muscle” is your goal, then eggs are your friend! A study showed that eating eggs after a workout can actually help with muscle growth! Just remember…too much of a good thing, like avocados and eggs, can be not so friendly transformation-wise, so moderation is the key here. 😉
