   – Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Serves: 1 –

Ingredients:

  • 1 Whole Avocado

  • 2 Farm Fresh Eggs

  • Optional toppings: fresh herbs, bacon, tomato, cheese, salt, pepper (yum, all of the above!)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil (I actually prefer a loaf pan because it keeps everything in its place!)

  • Halve the avocado and remove the pit, but keep the skin on!

  • Scoop out a little extra avocado so there is a divot large enough to hold a whole egg.

  • Crack an egg into each half of the avocado.

  • Add your optional toppings.

  • Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on how well done you like your eggs.
