Baked Avocado Eggs

Baked Avocado Eggs

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 20 min

Ingredients:

  • 2 firm (but ripe) avocados, halved and pitted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 mL)each salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL)Tostitos® Roasted Red Pepper Salsa

Instructions:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line 8-inch (2 L) square baking pan with foil. Using a spoon, scoop out some of the avocado flesh to create a divot large enough to fit an egg. (Reserve flesh for another use.)

Step 2: Place avocado halves in prepared pan so they fit snugly against each other; fold foil around avocados to prevent tipping. Crack 1 egg into each avocado half; season with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Bake until whites are set and yolks are cooked to desired doneness, approximately 18 to 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. To serve, top with salsa.

Tips:

• After baking, sprinkle crumbled cooked bacon over eggs if desired.

• Serve with toast or warmed tortillas for dipping.
