Baked Avocado and Egg Breakfast

It’s day five of the keto diet (we’ve finally given it a label) and the more research I do on this new lifestyle, the happier I am with my decision to drop carbs and processed sugars!  I have been experiencing a touch of the carb flu (dizziness, feeling light-headed, a little weakness – especially in the legs), but I am feeling inspired and motivated to keep going. I will tell you that drinking A LOT of water will be very helpful in curbing this “flu”.

This morning I decided to try a keto meal that had caught my eye quite some time ago, but was slightly skeptical about – baked avocado and egg. I wasn’t sure how I felt about eating a warm avocado or if I would like the egg/avocado combination, but I am pleased to say that I ended up finding this breakfast very delicious and super satisfying. It was also very easy to make which is always a bonus. I strongly suggest you give this one a try!

Baked Avocado and Egg

Baked Avocado and Egg

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs crumbled bacon
  • salt and pepper

What to do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut one avocado in half. Set the avocado half with the attached pit to the side to use later.
  3. Using a small spoon, scoop out some extra avocado around the center (enough to fit the egg yolk and white). I suggest eating the spooned out avocado with a tiny sprinkle of salt and a drop of lime juice…but that’s just me.
  4. Place the avocado in a small ramekin or a muffin pan to prevent it from rolling around in the oven.
  5. Crack one egg into the center of the avocado and season with salt and pepper. It’s okay if some egg white spills over the edge of the avocado.
  6. Sprinkle crumbled bacon over the top and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  7. Once egg is fully cooked, remove from oven and let sit for a few minutes to cool.
  8. Eat while still warm! The egg developed a slight crispy crust around the edges and I strongly recommend using the bacon! The avocado and egg had a soft, creamier texture, so the bacon provided a lovely crunch.

Seriously, give this recipe a try! I will definitely be making this again and again for breakfast.
