Avocado Baked With Egg Filling
This was a dinner for us tonight. I had to come up with something delicious and nutritious, yet very simple and quick at the same time.
I had a couple of big avocados on the countertop to quickly visualize an idea for a deliciously nutritious dinner meal! I just added a few strips of vegetarian turkey strips and eggs to the avocado halves as a filling. Then, popped the avocados filled with the filling into the oven, and in 20 minutes, I had this amazing, Omega-3-rich dinner. We loved it!
Breakfast or lunch idea: Avocado Hummus Toast, a quick and appetizing snack meal.
While my avocado halves were baking inside the oven, I pureed tomatoes, pieces of squash, red bell peppers, onions in my Vitamix mixer to make a tomato soup. Do you know that there’s a function in the Vitamix that makes hot soups in 2 minutes? Yes, just drop your ingredients into the container and push the button. Voila, my entire dinner was ready in 40 quick minutes, not a minute more!
Tips for Baked Eggs In Avocado
Here are a few baking tips to prepare your baked avocado egg in a hole.
• Choose avocados at room temperature.
• Scoop out about 1-1.5 tablespoons of avocado to create create a crate for a whole egg. But scoop wide versus deep. If you scoop deep, it will take longer for the egg to cook.
• Use small to large eggs grade. Using anything larger could be too big for an avocado baking crate.
• Use any available ramekin or au gratin dishes to situate the avocados during baking.
How To Pit Avocados
One way to get rid of the avocado pit is either to carefully squeeze it from the half. It will easily pop out if your avocado is ripe and soft enough. If the pit hasn’t yield to your squeeze, then carefully take a knife, carefully push it into the pit and slowly twist it to left and right to loosen the avocado pit. A pit will likely stick into the knife blade or fall out on its own.
Add Strips of Smoked Salmon or Turkey to Avocado Halves
To jazz up this baked avocado egg recipe, I like to add smoked salmon or vegetarian turkey strips. I place them into the avocado hole before adding an egg.

A Fiber and Omega-3 Rich Dinner in 30 Minutes
One cup of sliced avocado or approximately one-half of a large avocado contains approximately 17 grams of good monounsaturated and polysaturated fats. These are the fats that are needed for stronger immune system and for building blocks during other chemical reactions in our bodies. Fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K require the presence of fats to become bioavailable in our bodies.
