How to make 'Egg in Avocado' from Instagram
- Slice one avocado in half. Remove and dispose of the avocado stone and place one half in the refrigerator.
- Now, using a tablespoon, scoop out half a handful of the avocado and dispose of it.
- Crack one whole egg in to the avocado. If you are using a chopped chilli, add one teaspoon to the top of the egg.
- Place the avocado half with the egg inside, in to a small baking dish or on to a baking tray, standing its underside in tin foil to ensure it doesn't topple over.
- Leave in oven at 150 degrees for 15 minutes or until egg is baked. To check it is cooked, give it a wobble. The egg should wobble, but only slightly.
- Leave to cool for 2 minutes once cooked.
- Add a pinch of pepper and serve.
You can try adding a combination of different toppings - bacon and cheese may not be the healthiest option, but if you're having a lazy Sunday morning, and it's cheat day, then why not!
Other toppings you could try include:
- Tabasco Chipotle sauce
- Tomato puree
- Cheese and chives
- Tomato ketchup
- Cherry tomatoes
