A Perfect Saturday Breakfast

Today is the start of soccer season for the little people in our house.  Saturday's have now become infinitely busier than usual, as the hubby and I each go separate ways with a kid in tow.  Conflicting time slots and field locations means there is going to be a lot of running around.
Running around = a hearty breakfast and coffee.  "Fuel up" I say!

After returning home from my Friday night Costco date, I had an enormous bag of avocados that I purchased because:

A) I love avocados &
B) Cinco de Mayo is next Saturday (it's never to early to start celebrating)
So this morning after an early morning run, I grabbed one of these green gems, cracked an egg, and baked until warm and bubbly.  Delicious Saturday.

Baked Eggs & Avocado

1 avocado
2 eggs
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 425F.
Cut avocado in half lengthwise and remove pit.  Using a spoon make the holes a little larger to fit egg.
Crack an egg into hole, place on baking sheet and cook for 10-15 minutes or until eggs are at preferred doneness.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
(note: in order to avoid having the avocado roll around on the baking sheet, I sliced a little off the bottom.)
(note#2: to speed up cooking time, cover with foil)
Serve with toast.


  1. I am definitely going to try this one! I love avocado as well and am looking for new ways to enjoy it.

    1. I'm a huge avocado lover, so this breakfast was right up my alley. I hope you enjoy it just as much!
