The past couple of weeks have been crazy-busy. My lists have lists. Today I realized that I had forgotten to eat lunch, but it was getting to that point where dinner was coming up soon and I didn’t want to eat too much to spoil my dinner.
The other thing that goes along with me being super busy is I also forget to shop. I opened my fridge today and found eggs that were expiring in two days and one sole avocado I had forgotten I had. SUCCESS! A quick high-protein snack.
You may want to add some feta cheese, hot sauce or other spices (cumin, paprika, chili powder, even lemon zest) to this simple snack. If you need a quick pick-me-up, this healthy snack is a great option.
Avocado with Baked Egg
- 1 avocado
- 2 eggs
- salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit. Scoop out more of the inside so when you crack the egg, it all fits in there (mine spilled out a little). Don’t waste the scooped out avo, it’s perfect to eat while you’re waiting for the rest to bake.
- Sprinkle salt and pepper on avocado.
- Crack egg and put in avocado. Season egg.
- Bake directly on oven rack for 20 – 25 minutes. (The oven rack helps hold the avocado in place)
