Egg Stuffed Avocados

I love, absolutely love avocado. A few years ago, the only thing I would have eaten avocado in is guacamole, or inside of a burrito or taco if a restaurant served it that way. Now I sometimes just eat it with sea salt and cilantro for a snack. An even better way to eat it? With an egg baked in the middle! It then combines two favorites; avocados AND breakfast!


2 avocado
4 eggs
1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper
Cilantro (optional)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and place a wire rack inside of a pan (I used a cookie sheet). Cut each avocado in half and remove the pits. Scoop out about 1 tablespoon from the inside of each hole where the pit was, and either save for guacamole or another recipe, or enjoy a quick snack while making these... Crack open one egg into a small bowl and carefully pour the egg into an avocado hole. If some of the white spills out, that's okay, that is why the sheet is underneath! Repeat for the remaining eggs, and season with salt and pepper. Top each egg with about 1-2 teaspoons of shredded cheese. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the egg yolk is the consistency you want, and especially until the whites are no longer runny. Let cool slightly before serving, and topping with cilantro!
