How to Make Avocado Egg Bake

Step 1. First of all, you will want to preheat the oven to 425F.

Afterward, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. You will want to scoop out a little bit of the avocado around the area where the pit was. This is going to make room for the eggs.

Step 2. Carefully crack one egg into each of the avocado halves. Pour the eggs one at a time into a small bowl first if you’re a little worried about eggshells.

Gently move the eggs into a small baking dish. Try to find the smallest dish that will fit both the avocados.

This will help prevent the avocados from tipping over. Even better, if you have baking beans, you can lay those on the bottom of the dish and nest the avocados right on top of the beans.

Season with the salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning once the eggs are nestled in the baking dish.

Step 3. Now, place the baking dish in the oven and make sure to bake for 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are completely cooked.

Once the eggs are cooked, remove them from the baking dish carefully. Garnish with salsa and sliced scallions.

Make sure that you are using a salsa that is sugar-free. There are lots of great options, like this one.
