Baked Avocado Eggs

Pinterest is often a source of inspiration in my kitchen, these baked avocado eggs were another project that I was wanting to try after seeing some drool worthy avocado eggs pics pinned.

Eggs Baked In Avocado Pinterest Fail

While the execution might not be up to Pinterest standards let me tell you the taste certainly was and after learning a little about food styling at a blogging conference last summer, I'm a little wary that not all of what you see posted in editorials is even edible. I tell myself this frequently to soothe the pain of Pinterest fails and poor composition, it kind of works too.

You Will Need
An avocado
2 small eggs
Salt and pepper to season

avocado flesh sliced on chopping board
Scoop out enough flesh to crack an egg into

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Cut the avocodo in half and remove the stone.
Scoop a little more flesh out around the pit that the stone has left. It needs to be deep enough to hold an the egg, I'd advise you go a bit deeper than I did.

I needed to scoop out more avocado

Put the avocados into an oven proof dish. I used the avocado stone to prop up one half of the avocado as it needs to sit flat or the egg will run out.
Crack one egg into each avocado half.
Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over each avocado to season it.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes.
