Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 medium avocado they are usually easier to find - can substitute large
  • 2 medium eggs
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 sliced bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1 Tablespoons chives
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning to taste, if desired

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet or small pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Slice an avocado in half and carefully remove the pit.
  • Flip them over and carefully level the bottom of the avocado by slicing the high point off with a sharp knife.

    This will help your avocado stay flat. If you do not feel comfortable slicing the bottom of a slippery, round object; simply place the halves into a baking dish in a way that they rest against the sides to prop them up.
  • Remove some of the inside of the avocado to allow room for the egg, about a Tablespoon should do.
  • Crack an egg and pour it into the cavity of the avocado. Repeat with the second egg.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and place in the preheated oven. Bake until the whites are set, about 12 to 15 minutes if you like a runny inside. Cook for 15 to 18 minutes for a hard set center.
  • Remove from oven and top with chopped bacon and chives or everything bagel seasoning, or both. It’s up to you!!

Notes

  • Use medium sized eggs with medium sized avocados. Use large eggs with large avocados.
  • Use any topping that you like; shredded cheese, diced bell pepper, mushrooms, chopped spinach, diced ham or crumbled sausage.
  • Use Whole30/sugar-free bacon for Keto, Whole30 and Paleo diets.
  • 9 carbs - 7 fiber = 2 net carbs
