Next up on CopyKat.com, I am going to show
you how to bake eggs and avocados. Who hasn’t seen this lovely photo
on Pinterest of this beautiful avocado and eggs baked together? I’m going
to show you how to do that this morning. I’ve kind of gotten started here with a couple.
The first thing you need to do is go ahead and slice that avocado in half.
I’m just using a fancy little tool here. You can use a knife; they
work really, really well. You’re going to split this open, and you’re
going to take out the pit out of the avocado. The picture doesn’t show you that if you pour
a large egg into the spot where the avocado was, that the egg is going
to run all over. The first thing we need to do is we need to flatten
out the avocado so it’ll lie nice and flat. Then you need to scoop some of this
out, because again, if you use a large or extra-large egg, it is going
to overflow. Perhaps if you want to make a whole bunch of these for company,
buy some small eggs and use those because those would probably work
better. We’re going to scoop this out, and the next
thing we’re going to do is we’re going to take a sheet of aluminum foil
here, and we’re going to make a little basket for the avocado and the egg,
because some of the egg may run over. This will really help with that. Just repeat until you have all of them that
you want done. Now you are simply going to crack an egg and put it into
one of the avocado halves. It’s very, very easy to do. You see, you just
drop it in there, just like that. When you get them all in there, let’s
go ahead and season these up. I put a little bit of salt and a little bit
of black pepper on here. I have a secret ingredient; it’s really not secret.
I am going to put a little bit of smoked paprika on the top. It adds a nice
little bit of color and a little bit of heat. The next thing happens is these go in a 350
degree oven for about 20 or so minutes. Depending upon how hard you like
the yolk is how long you’re going to cook them. I topped mine with just a little
bit of crispy bacon. I’m going to go ahead and take a bite of this. Let me tell you, it is wonderfully creamy
inside. Here we go. It’s really good. A nice bit of egg yolk and avocado in
there. It’s so good. This makes a fabulous, easy weekend breakfast. Please
