We are trying to eat a little leaner these days, and breakfast is the toughest meal of the day when there are so many bread and pastry temptations. Saturday morning I tried this out, and it was so simple and family approved! Combining the protein in eggs with the good fat in avocados, the fiber in black beans and the cancer fighting cooked tomatoes in salsa is a great way to start the day right.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.Halve the avocados and remove the stone inside. Scoop out some of the filling, enough to make room for a whole egg. Place the avocados into a loaf pan or small baking dish so they fit snug together, to prevent them from tipping over. Carefully crack each egg and pour them into the avocado shells one by one. Salt and pepper as you like. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle chopped green onions on top. Serve with black beans, salsa, sour cream, tortillas.
You were the inspiration for my breakfast this morning!! I, too, am trying to stay away from most breads and sugars. Healthy breakfast options have been a challenge for me. There were no avocados in our house; however, I improvised! My breakfast consisted of a peach along with a combination of egg, cheese and black beans. Thanks for the inspiration!! I’ll be grocery shopping and trying your recipe soon!
I love avocados, this didn’t get me too excited but as always it looks so great. I actually feel I could live off of avocados! Thanks for sharing
